ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Ryan Clady rejected both a $50 million offer and the chance to talk about it.

The Denver Broncos and the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle, who will play a crucial role in protecting Peyton Manning's blind side this season, ended talks Monday on a contract extension until after the 2012 season.

Clady walked off the field behind his fellow offensive linemen after Monday night's practice and declined to discuss his contract situation.

John Elway told The Denver Post that while negotiations hit at impasse, the Broncos were ''looking forward to Ryan playing a key role on our team this year and hope he will be a Bronco for many seasons to come.''

Clady will make $3.5 million this season in the final season of a five-year deal he signed as a rookie out of Boise State in 2008. The Broncos had reportedly offered the fifth-year pro $50 million over five years with $28 million guaranteed.

Maybe he's waiting to see what Duane Brown does.

Teams are going to get squeezed until they loosen the cap. I could see the Colts targeting Clady -- you'd think they'd have room while Luck draft contract is in force.

The Broncos will franchise Clady if they can't extend him. He's not going anywhere.
