The Denver Broncos and left tackle Ryan Clady will begin talking about a long term contract, according to a report.

The Denver Broncos drafted left tackle Ryan Clady with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, a surprise at the time, and Clady has since been one of the best left tackles in the NFL when healthy. Clady is coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2011, after rebounding from a 2010 season where he struggled after tearing his patella tendon in the offseason.

The Broncos have now started contract talks with the former first-round pick according to a report by the Denver Post.

The Broncos have opened contract-extension talks with Ryan Clady, according to several NFL sources.

The left tackle is in the final year of his deal that will pay him $3.5 million in 2012. The franchise tag for left tackles this season was $9.4 million.

Clady has never missed a start in his four seasons with the Broncos, including the season in which he tore his patella tendon.
