Ryan Clady won't be breaking the bank anytime soon.
The Denver Broncos and the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle who will protect Peyton Manning's blind side ended talks Monday on a contract extension until after the 2012 season.
John Elway told The Denver Post that negotiations hit an impasse. So, Clady will make $3.5 million this season. The Broncos had reportedly offered the fifth-year pro $50 million over five years with $28 million guaranteed.
In free agency next year, Clady and his agent, Pat Dye, can seek a deal more in line with Cleveland's Joe Thomas, whose deal averages $11.5 million a season, although the Broncos could put the franchise tag on him.
Clady has started every game in his career and played in his second Pro Bowl last season.
