06:56 AM ET 07.12 | The clock is ticking toward July 15, after which none of the NFL's eight franchise-tagged players can sign long-term deals with their current teams until after the end of the regular season. Two of them, Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady and Bills safety Jairus Byrd, are unsigned. ... [It's] now harder to do long-term deals when a player has a high (relatively speaking) guaranteed salary for the coming season. As a result, it won't be a surprise if none of them get a long-term deal done before July 15. Of them, arguably the most likely to ink a long-term deal is Clady, the man most responsible for keeping Peyton Manning's neck and its quartet of surgeries in one piece. Per a league source, it's not impossible -- but there is a "lot of work to be done" to make it happen.

If this guy really keeps Mannings' neck intact, quick screwing around and sign him!

They've got huge packages on the table for him, he could sign. You can't sign somebody if they won't pick up the pen.

The Bronco's PR firm (otherwise called the Denver Post), reported that they sweetened the deal and have a contract that puts him above Jason Peters' contract--if you hold Jason's contract at a right angle and close your left eye when you look at it. What the article doesn't detail is how much is guaranteed. I want to hope, but after faxgate, who knows.

That's an expensive neck brace.

John Harbaugh is going to use the guy his brother Jim used to cut the power in the super bowl to cut the power to the Bronco's fax machine again. I don't think McKinnie will last the whole season for the Ravens.
