AFC West champions Denver Broncos will resume contract negotiations with offensive tackle Ryan Clady this week, according to the Denver Post.

The Broncos have until July 15 to reach a multi-year deal with Clady, in the hope he will tie up a long-term contract at the club.

If they don't tie up this deal, they are running the risk that Clady can walk for free after the 2013 season. Clady will play on a $9.823m salary this season if no new deal is negotiated during the next week.

Clady was a regular in the Broncos side in 2012 - starting all 16 games - so the Broncos will not want to lose one of their most influential players, who is one of, if not the best, left tackle in the NFL.

He is only one of four offensive tackles in NFL history who started every game (80) through his first five seasons, while making three Pro Bowls in the meantime, so the Broncos will be keen to keep their man for the foreseeable future.
