If you ever wanted to know why guys like long-term security and cashing out on big extensions, your perfect example is right here with Denver Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that the Clady will miss the remainder of the season, and has been placed on the season-ending injured reserve list.

It's a tough blow for the Broncos and Clady, who signed a five-year, $57.5 million deal with $33 million guaranteed in the offseason.

Clady suffered a Lisfranc foot injury in Sunday’s win over the New York Giants, and after having it checked out, the team’s medical staff has decided that he’s going to need several months to recover. We'll have to wonder how the Denver's offensive line, or especially Peyton Manning's blind side, will do this season without their best lineman.
