Broncos optimistic long-term deal will get done with Von Miller


The top free agent on the board may sign a new contract before free agency starts.

The Broncos are pushing for a long-term contract extension for pass rusher Von Miller and are optimistic that a deal will get done, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

There are no details on what kind of financial terms a long-term deal would have, but Miller will certainly be looking for something that makes him one of the highest-paid players in the NFL. After capping a strong 2015 season with an MVP-winning performance in the Super Bowl, it’s hard to argue against that kind of deal.

Rapoport notes that if the Broncos can get a deal done with Miller, it would open the possibility of using the franchise tag on quarterback Brock Osweiler. But it’s also possible that the Broncos could use the franchise tag on defensive lineman Malik Jackson. The Broncos have a lot of work to do in free agency, but the highest priority is getting a deal with Miller done.

  1. If that problem child named Suh was worth a buck twenty, Miller must at least be in that ball park as the game’s premier edge rusher.

    Elway’s highest priority is finding new ways to cook the books.

    why would they sign this guy ive never heard of? should cut him instead IMO

    I’m guessing that’s suppose to be a joke or you just want your team to sign Von

    I’m sure the best GM in pro sports today will find a way to keep the necessary talent.


    I’m sure that Mr. Edway will find a way to circumvent the cap and keep the necessary talent. The Broncos are experienced with this kind of subterfuge. Of course, it helps that the league lacks the stones to impose anything more than a slap on the wrist. It would totally be worth the loss of a third round pick and $95oK (8 years later) to be able to resign both Miller and Jackson.

  5. The Broncos should be more worried about signing Peyton to a few more years. He makes every better including Von. They would not have won the Super Bowl without Peyton. I don’t know why Vin is getting all the credit. Peyton should have won the MVP. LOL.

    That’s an indictment on you not him, bright guy.

    LOL… spoken like a true POS Pats fan –

  8. Pretty sure we know how this ends. Miller gets paid under the table like Elway and Davis were paid when they won those tainted SBs in the late 90s. Sorry Denver, you lost multiple draft picks and were assigned the biggest fine in NFL history – circumventing the cap will always tarnish the organization’s history.

    I wonder if Miller will get caught bribing the PED urine tester again.

  9. I think somewhere Brady is hoping long term deal for Von falls through. He has been a nightmare for Brady.

    All of these anti-Broncos comments crack me up.

    Sorry your team sucks.

    We’re really not sorry at all. Haha

  11. Since cheating on salary cap worked so well for Broncos, Miller decided to try and bribe the nfl urine tester and it’s going to work out very well for him also. I guess it’s the bronco way.

  12. How do they have all of this money? Von likely to be the highest paid defensive player, they’re throwing Jackson 10 a year, they got Thomas and talib on pretty big contracts and they still have to pay Brock

  13. Get a long term deal done with Miller OR Brock
    Franchise which ever one doesn’t get a long term deal
    Re-sign Trevethan
    Compete for a title again next year
    Jackson needs to be the odd man out. They have more good pass rushers than LBs,

  14. Elway is moron. This is the same guy that got hoodwinked by Dumervil with the fax excuse and it will likely happen again because he has no leverage.

    He’s like a drunken sailor knee jerking every move.

    Just horrendous salary allocation and budgeting.

  15. The whole team is on Gomert’s undetectable roids from the Guyer Institute.

    That’s not going away, folks. The Feds will be in on that and the collusion between Goodell and other AFC owners/GMs.

    Elway is a fraud and a clear cheater.

    Cooking the books like this right in front of the entire league, should command an immediate audit.

  16. Von Miller is going to get paid, no doubt about it, but I’m curious as to how they’re going to manage to keep Jackson and Trevathan plus sign Osweiler. Obviously as a Raider fan I’m hoping they can’t sign everyone but that defense is scary good and fun to watch

  17. Based on Von’s past, the deal needs to have a couple outs in case he screws up off the field again. Absent that, he’s convinced me he’s grown up. I’d say pay him JJ Watt money and hope he remains healthy and motivated for a few years.
