The Denver Broncos placed their franchise tag on offensive tackle Ryan Clady, according to ESPN, citing a league source.
Clady's franchise tag salary for next season will be $9.828 million. He made $3.5 million last season in the final year of a five-year deal he signed as a rookie.
Clady reportedly rejected a five-year, $50-million contract from Denver, including $28 million guaranteed.
The 26-year-old has started every game of his career and has been selected to three Pro Bowls.
