It looks like Ryan Clady is all but signed with the Denver Broncos according to reports.
Mike Garafolo, NFL reporter for FOXSports.com and the soon-to-be launched Fox Sports 1, says that the deal is nearly done with loose ends that need to be tied up by Monday.
Re: Ryan Clady, sources indicate sides have gotten closer than they’ve been. Still a gap that has to be bridged by Mon but optimism growing.

Rotoworld expands on the report even further reminding us of his shoulder injury that he suffered in the Broncos’ regular season finale.
One aspect of Denver’s increased Clady talks not many have discussed is the fact that team doctors must be quite pleased with his recovery from serious offseason shoulder surgery.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen also reported earlier on Friday that “Peyton Manning is optimistic” on Clady’s return. Earlier this week, the Broncos improved their offer from a five-year deal worth $50 million a year ago.
Clady has not missed a game in his five-year career with the Denver Broncos. He currently holds the longest streak in the NFL for not giving up a sack in 20 games (only a half-sack in that duration). He also made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and 2012.
