NFL news roundup: Clady, Broncos talk extension and another arrest in Hernandez case
The NFL news is a mix of football-related developments and legal developments as the off-field problems continue to make waves around the league. Another man was arrested in connection to the Aaron Hernandez case, while Bryce Brown defended himself against dogfighting claims, but there was on-field news in Denver where Ryan Clady and the Broncos are still far off in their extension talks and Quentin Jammer's transition to safety continues.
The Denver Broncos and Ryan Clady are discussing a long-term contract that will keep Clady in Denver, but the two sides "aren't close." The Broncos slapped the franchise tag on Clady, but the offensive tackle has not signed it. Clady is a three-time Pro Bowler and is hoping to get an extension similar to the seven-year, $80.5 million deal that Joe Thomas signed with the Browns last August, but if reports are true, the Broncos aren't willing to give him the contract he wants.
Ernest Wallace is being held without bond in Florida in connection with the Aaron Hernandez murder case. Massachusetts had a warrant out for Wallace, who turned himself in and will be taken to Massachusetts to be arraigned. Wallace will be charged as an accessory after the fact in the Odin Lloyd murder case and is the third man to be arrested in connection to the murder of Lloyd.
Bryce Brown took to Twitter to defend himself against claims that he participated in a dogfighting operation. The Philadelphia Eagles running back tweeted that he and his breeder are victims, as well as a photo of him celebrating his dog's birthday. Brown's lawyer represented him in court on Friday and insisted that the player and his wife are loving dog owners and that he had not been a part of the operation in the slightest.
