Latest NewsBroncos | Von Miller talks dormant (Fri Jun 24, 02:22 PM) - Denver Broncos LB Von Miller hasn't had contract discussions with the team since early June, according to sources. Miller is under the team's control for 2016 via the franchise tag. Our View: The Broncos have until July 15 to negotiate a long-term deal under the CBA, but the team had set an earlier deadline to get the deal done that coincided with the negotiations coming to a halt. Denver could rekindle talks at the deadline, but if they can't finish a deal, Miller could hold out instead of playing under the 14.129 million franchise tag.
link to story Broncos | Von Miller talks are stagnant (Tue Jun 21, 02:50 PM) - Denver Broncos LB Von Miller's long-term contract negotiations with the Broncos have gone cold over the past 10 to 12 days, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler. The two sides still have sizeable gap regarding guaranteed money. Fowler said Miller has supposedly explored holding out until March, at which point he would become a non-exclusive franchise player. Then, another team could offer a first-round pick and third-round pick for Miller. Our View: It's late June....and we'll be more optimistic about this situation than others. The two sides have until July 15th to make Miller the highest-paid defender in the NFL. Miller is entering his prime and the Broncos defense is the best in the league....so long as Miller is pressuring QBs on the outside. The math here is simple; pay the man!
link to story Broncos | Von Miller threatens to sit out (Thu Jun 16, 12:29 PM) - Denver Broncos LB Von Miller posted on Instagram Thursday, June 16, that he will not play the 2016 season under the franchise tag. Our View: We've heard this before and we'll see. Not playing the whole season impacts his benefits and other aspects fans don't know about, which is why you rarely see guys actually follow through. The Broncos wouldn't fall apart if he sat out, but the defense would certainly take a hit. We'll keep you updated as things progress.
link to story Broncos | Von Miller doesn't want to sit out (Wed Jun 15, 03:49 PM) - Denver Broncos LB Von Miller said he does not want to sit out the 2016 season to wait for a long-term extension. Miller said he and the Broncos still have a month to negotiate that long-term deal and he would like to remain with Denver for the rest of his career. Our View: Fully guaranteed money seem to be the hold-up for this deal. We'll see if the two sides can find a middle ground. This defense would be hurt - though likely not devastated - if Miller sat out.
