ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Everybody at Broncos headquarters is operating under the assumption Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady will return to Denver in time for training camp with a new contract and a clean bill of health in hand.
Everybody except for Chris Clark, that is.
The fifth-year journeyman tackle is preparing as though he'll be the one protecting Peyton Manning's blindside on the Broncos' upcoming Super Bowl-or-bust tour.
Clady has stayed away from Dove Valley since January while rehabbing from offseason shoulder surgery and angling for a new long-term contract while his free agent tender gathers dust instead of his signature.
