Von Miller expects long term deal to get done, expects DeMarcus Ware back

The expectation is that the Broncos are going to use the franchise tag on Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, partly because they can’t let him reach the open market and partly because that’s how they’ve always done things around there.

But Miller said regardless the tag, he expects to eventually end up with a long-term deal with the Broncos, because of his relationship with executive vice president John Elway.

I put in all the work I can possibly do,” Miller said, via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. “If I was with any other organization, if I was with any other team, maybe I’d be worried about everything, but I’ve got John Elway. He’s played, he’s had experience with this whole process. I feel comfortable. Me and John’s relationship is great: He was there when I was going through stuff and he never wavered. I feel like we won’t waver now either.

“It will be a great experience, and it will be peaceful — there’s no reason for it not to be.”

Well, there are millions of reasons it could be, but the Broncos have a pattern of tagging their own guys and extending them before the season starts, so it’s reasonable to expect the same thing will happen with their star pass-rusher.

And Miller also believes that once he’s back, he’s going to be playing with DeMarcus Ware again. The 32-year-old Ware has a year left on his contract.

“Most definitely, I definitely think he’s going to be back,” Miller said. “We need him back. You saw the job he did, not only with me, but with everybody in the locker room. That alone is worth every penny, then when you add in his pass rush, all the skill he still has, of course I would like to keep DeMarcus and think he will be back.”

Ware has been important to Miller at several levels, shepherding him through a torn ACL and a substance abuse policy suspension. That, as much as the pass-rush presence he adds on the other side of the line, makes Miller hopeful they can all stay together.

    I see an extension in Ware’s future and Miller will be making lots of the dispensaries here in Denver very happy.

    Give Ware two more years to make it a 3 year deal. With the young guys coming up he will be able to be a situational pass rusher like Peppers is for the Packers now.

    I wouldn’t do it, bc it’ll be another waste like Suh and Haynesworth. Not only that but the Broncos are not even going anywhere in the next decade considering the qb position.

    Three players will make up 27.5% of their 2016 cap. Manning ($21mil), Ware ($11.6mil), and Clady ($10.1mil) In order to pay Miller and the other core free agents they will probably have to offload two of the 3. Manning and Clady look like the easy choices. Other than their QB and RB’s (Brock, Ronnie, and CJ) and some defensive starters being free agents they look like they will be a solid team for a few more years.

    I guess that is the code expression for PED’s: “put in all the work.” Yes, he “put in the work” and must have been getting the goods from PEDton’s connection. I can see where he and Elway get along. Elway along with Terrell Davis cheated the cap when they won it and now PED-ers like Miller and PEDton continue the legacy. And he has no class to boot. I wish the NFL took some blood tests after the last two Bronco’s games of the year!

    After that Super Bowl MVP performance, it is more probable than not that Miller will get exactly what he expects.

    “looks like they will be a solid team for a few more years.”

    Oh thank you sooo much for your endorsement. The Denver Broncos have had, what, ONE losing season in the past 20 years? Have also been to 8 superbowls, top 5 winning percentage all time etc. They are usually good EVERY year. We aren’t talking about the Tampa Bay Bucs or something here.

    Let’s see, Miller will take the hometown discount, Ware will agree to restructure for less money, Clady will return to form and take a pay cut to stay, Osweiler will sign for less than market value and be a star, Malik Jackson will clearly take less to play in Denver and Trevathan will also be loyal and sign a team friendly deal at his own expense. Denver will lose no other depth either, in fact, they will probably get some high end free agents that will be highly pursued to come play in Denver for way less than they could get on the rest of the open market. Yep, Denver fan, sounds like you have it all figured out.

    Broncos should reward Miller. They already have shown their ready to reward players in that organization caught cheating with PED’s. Did it with Wolfe last year and Miller has to be in line for a big extension this year. With PEDtyon possibly retiring looks like they’ll be losing one of their elite PED users.

    R502…. Right on! Thanks for breakin’ it down!

    When did Von Miller test positive for PED’s? Cite your sources please! All you haters spewing that nonsense know it’s a lie but hope if you say it enough it’ll be believed as truth. And if you do think it’s true, than your an idiot troll who doesn’t do their own research!
