Draft Scout Von Miller News
06/16/16 - LB Von Miller expressed his toughest sentiments yet about his contract situation by insisting he won't play in 2016 if the Broncos keep the franchise tag on him. Miller is disillusioned that he and the Broncos have been unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal. Denver placed the franchise tag on Miller in March but the two sides are now at a stalemate in contract negotiations. The Super Bowl 50 MVP used his Instagram account to convey his stance. "I love my Teammates, Coaches, and My Fans but there is "No Chance" I play the 2016 season under the Franchise tag," Miller wrote. The Broncos offered Miller a six-year, $114.5 million deal but it was turned down because Miller and his representatives weren't happy with the amount of guaranteed money in the offer. Denver offered $38.9 million in guaranteed money over the first two years with a potential of $58 million overall.
Without an agreement, Miller would be left to play the 2016 season under a $14.129 million franchise tag
05/26/16 - OLB Von Miller remained absent because of his unsigned franchise tender. This is the second consecutive year in which the Broncos have seen a player miss offseason work because of a franchise tender; Demaryius Thomas did last year.
03/01/16 - LB Von Miller received the exclusive franchise designation from the Broncos Tuesday (March 1).
The outside linebacker was Super Bowl 50 MVP and currently costs $14.129 against the salary cap. That figure could increase when the franchise tag is recalculated on April 22.
Vice president of operations and general manager John Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine last week that he "feels good" about where the Broncos stand with Miller. He also said "absolutely" when asked if negotiations with Miller are ongoing. In the same position last summer, the Broncos worked out a long-term deal with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
Miller had 11 sacks during the 2015 regular season and five more during the playoffs. He was named the MVP of Super Bowl 50 with six tackles, 2.5 sacks, two quarterback hits and two forced fumbles that led to points.
02/08/16 - LB Von Miller, the Super Bowl MVP and pending free agent, vowed that the negotiations with the Broncos would be "a peaceful thing."
With an expiring contract, the Broncos will surely give him the franchise tag if they can't work out a deal with him later this month. And if and when a long-term deal is struck, it will likely be more expensive than the $16.7 million deal the Chiefs struck with LB Justin Houston. However, Miller wasn't thinking about that in the wake of his 2.5-sack, two-forced-fumble performance that made him the 10th defensive player to win Super Bowl MVP honors. "The Super Bowl MVP is special, but the Super Bowl ring is something that I will keep with me for the rest of my life," he said.
01/24/16 - LB Von Miller had 2.5 sacks and an interception Sunday in the Broncos' win over the Patriots in the AFC title game.
"He's been that way all year," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He's been a special player."
