After the Denver Broncos promoted quarterbacks coach Adam Gase to offensive coordinator on Thursday morning, Gase told reports he wants Denver’s offense to put the “pedal to the metal” with quarterback Peyton Manning in 2013.
Obviously, that is something fans in Denver love to hear. Not only does it excite the fans, but also a player that the Broncos will not want to lose this offseason.
Offensive tackle Ryan Clady allowed just one sack this season, and to keep himself healthy going into free agency, he has opted to skip the 2013 Pro Bowl. In the final year of his contract, Clady will want big money to stay in Denver, but was excited to see Gase’s quote, re-tweeting PFT’s story simply stating: “Nice.”
Nice enough to convince him to stay in Denver? Probably. Nice enough to cause him to not force Denver to use their franchise tag on him this summer? Probably not.
But the fact is, Clady performed well with Manning as his quarterback in 2012. And with the offense primed to be faster paced in 2013, Clady has no reason to leave.
