Linebacker Von Miller has spent more time dancing on television than with his teammates this offseason, but he joined the Broncos for Monday’s trip to the White House.

After Miller and the rest of the Super Bowl 50 champions spent time with President Obama, there was time for a few questions from the media. To no surprise, Miller, who received the franchise tag at the start of the offseason, was asked about where things stood in discussions with the Broncos about a long-term deal.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Miller said there’s been “a lot of progress” in the last couple of days. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak also said, via James Palmer of NFL Network, that there’s been progress although he added that he didn’t expect to see him at the team’s minicamp on Tuesday.

Miller and the Broncos have until July 15 to work out a multi-year contract or he will be in line to be a free agent again in 2017 after playing out the year on the franchise tender or a renegotiated one-year agreement. Based on Monday’s comments, Miller’s future in Denver may well be secured by the time that deadline arrives.

  1. There’s no progress….It’s far cheaper for the Broncos to Franchise Tag Von Miller for the next 3 years than it is to “pay” him on a long term deal.

  2. Miller is about to find out how Elway negotiates. Unless the deal is to Elways liking and team friendly, a series of franchise deals is what Miller can expect.

  3. It’s not a repeat type team. I think they franchise him so they aren’t awful and dump some other talent and rebuild under the young QB. No Peyton there will have a huge impact on the team.
