According to Mike Garafolo, the team feels good about talks and believes a contract agreement might be reached in that timeframe, taking their large star off of the franchise tag.
The two sides have been working towards a deal all offseason, with the expectation that Clady will command somewhere a tad north of $10 million per year. Should he eclipse $10.4 million, he would become the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL on an annual basis.
Clady, 26, has been one of the best in the business, a three-time Pro Bowl selection in 2009, 2010 and 2012 and twice a first-team All-Pro honoree in 2009 and 2012.
With training camp opening up in under two weeks, signing Clady would be a nice way to ring in the new season for the Broncos and their fans.
