Ryan Clady is set to resume talks with the Denver Broncos over a new long-term contract later this week, as he enters the final 12 months of his current deal.
The 26-year-old offensive tackle has already rejected a five-year $50million offer from the Colorado-based franchise last year, and is looking to negotiate an even more lucrative contract.
Clady and the Broncos have until July 15 to come to an agreement, or else the three-time Pro Bowl star will play his sixth and final campaign under the one-year $9.823million franchise tag salary in 2013/14.
After being picked in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Clady has gone on to establish himself as one of the best left tackles in the professional game, playing a key role in protecting the Broncos' largely immobile quarterback Peyton Manning.
Clady is currently recovering from a shoulder injury this offseason after tearing his labrum at the back end of last season, but will be hoping to be fit in time to start the new campaign in September.
