In ways other than say, $7.8 million or so, left tackle Ryan Clady is no different than punter Britton Colquitt.

To prevent Clady from becoming an unrestricted free agent, the Broncos slapped the left tackle with the restrictive franchise tag that pays him a $9.8282 million salary in 2013. Other teams can still try to sign away Clady, but they would not only have to lure him with a big contract, they would also have to give the Broncos two, first-round draft choices. Thatís highly unlikely to happen.

Colquitt is already a restricted free agent. To make sure he stays restricted, the Broncos are expected to place a second-round tender on him March 12, which would pay him a $2.023 million salary for 2013. Other teams can still try to sign away Colquitt, but besides paying him a relatively lucrative contract they would have to give the Broncos a second-round draft choice. Thatís highly unlikely to happen.

Didnt read the article but he most likely will get the 2nd round tender.
