According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, the Broncos haven't engaged in contract discussions with franchise player Von Miller since early this month.
In other words, nothing has changed. The sides are still at an impasse with Miller angling for more guaranteed money. The reigning Super Bowl MVP has threatened to sit out the season if the Broncos don't meet his demands but that seems extremely unlikely. The deadline for the two sides to reach a long-term deal is July 15. Jun 24 - 2:12 PM

Profootballtalk reports there's "buzz" teams have let Broncos franchise player Von Miller know they'd have interest in 2017 if he sits out the 2016 season.

That, of course, would be tampering, but hardly unusual by the NFL's standards. The Broncos would not be able to slap Miller with the "exclusive" tag in 2017, and teams readying offers would "only" have to surrender first- and third-round picks if the Broncos decided not to match. It's intriguing, but still very farfetched. The odds are extremely low Miller follows through on his hardball threat of sitting out the season. The sides have 22 more days to come to an understanding.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports contract talks between franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller and the Broncos have "gone cold."

Fowler says the two sides have had "minimal communication" over the last 10-to-12 days, which is almost the exact amount of time since the terms of the proposed deal were leaked to the press. That is not a coincidence. Both sides have agreed on a six-year, $114.5 million total, but the amount of guaranteed money and the structure of the contract remain sticking points. Even with negotiations becoming "emotional" over the last two weeks, it would be a surprise if a long-term deal is not reached before July 15.

Broncos franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller said contract negotiations are weighing on him.

"It just hurts," he said. "I’m not even going to lie. It’s a business but at the end of the day, I got feelings, too." Miller previously said negotiations had become "emotional." He is understandably upset with the Broncos for leaking information about contract talks in an effort to make him look bad, and he is now going on the offensive. Despite rhetoric about sitting out the season by Miller and his father, the most likely outcome remains a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.

Von Miller says there's "no chance" he plays 2016 under the franchise tag.

In an increasing rarity for NFL contract disputes, this one is devolving into true hardball. NBC Denver reports Miller was "irate" at the Broncos for leaking that he had turned down a six-year, $114.5 million offer, and that negotiations have gotten "emotional." There's still essentially zero chance Miller sits out the 2016 season, the threat of which is his only real leverage. With the hang ups being more about guarantees and cash flow than years or total dollars, something should get done before the July 15 deadline.

According to Profootballtalk on NBC Sports, the Broncos' offer to franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller included a $58 million injury guarantee with the remainder of his contract becoming guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2018 league year.

That's a pretty generous offer but apparently Miller thought he could do better. Last year's Super Bowl MVP is aiming for a deal worth over $70 million for the first three years. The Broncos reportedly offered him $39.5 million over the first two years of his contract. The two sides aren't negotiating right now but we're guessing they'll reconvene ahead of the July 15 deadline.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller want the Broncos to fully guarantee the first three years of his contract.

The two sides have reportedly agreed to a six-year, $114 million deal, but negotiations have hit a snag over guarantees and cash flow. After negotiating through the media for a day with ridiculous reports of pulling contract offers and sitting out the entire season, the two sides should get back to work to bridge what looks like a small gap. July 15 is the deadline for a long-term deal.
Jun 9 - 11:08 AM

According to Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson, there is "now a possibility" Broncos franchise player Von Miller "could sit out the 2016 season entirely."

Robinson reports Miller accepted the years and total money in the Broncos' six-year, $114.5 million offer, but "everything fell apart" when the sides weren't in the same ballpark on guarantees. Per Robinson, the "six-year" offer can be "dumped" after two seasons at $38.5 million guaranteed. Ndamukong Suh accepted less total money from the Dolphins, but landed $60 million in guarantees. The Giants guaranteed Olivier Vernon $52.5 million. The Broncos "shut down negotiations" when Miller refused, viewing it as "nothing less than a total rejection of terms." As Robinson tells it, the Broncos leaked the offered terms to the media, which might "seem to be an effort to put Miller in less-than-flattering light."
Jun 8 - 10:52 PM

NFL Network’s James Palmer confirms franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller has turned down the Broncos’ six-year, $114.5 million offer.

The deal included $39.8 million guaranteed and would have made Miller the highest paid outside linebacker in the league. Miller reportedly agreed to the length and total value, but rejected the structure and guarantees. The sides have just over a month to get something done.
Jun 8 - 5:06 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos have offered franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller a six-year, $114.5 million contract, but "no deal is in sight."

The proposed deal contains $39.8 million guaranteed over its first two years. The $19.083 million annual average would be tops among 4-3 ends and 3-4 outside linebackers, but it appears Miller is aiming for even more, likely closer to, or even above, $20 million per year. Miller has expressed optimism all along that a deal will eventually get done, but the sides have more work to do before July 15.
Jun 8 - 1:19 PM

Broncos franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller was not at the first day of minicamp.

The minicamp is mandatory for players under contract, but Miller has yet to sign his franchise tender. Miller said there has been "a lot of progress" in contract talks over the last week, but obviously not enough for him to participate in practice. The two sides will likely work out a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.

Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller said there has been "a lot of progress" in contract talks over the last couple days.

The Broncos and Miller have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal. It will probably go down to the wire but now there's a sense of optimism that the sides will come to an agreement. Right now the reigning Super Bowl MVP is playing under the $14.1 million franchise tag.
Jun 6 - 5:30 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports there's been "no recent movement" in contract talks between the Broncos and franchise player Von Miller.

Miller has been talking all week about his desire to remain with the Broncos for life, but it apparently hasn't moved the needle in talks. By publicly talking about his wish to be a lifetime Bronco, Miller is putting pressure on GM John Elway, whom Miller could later blame if negotiations collapsed. The sides have until July 15 to hammer out their differences.
May 5 - 1:26 PM

Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller said he is going to stay with the Broncos "no matter what."

"The contract is going to take care of itself," Miller added. Despite little apparent progress in negotiations, Miller has been consistently optimistic. Although it may come down to the July 15 deadline, it is likely the two sides work out a long-term deal.
May 4 - 6:55 PM

Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller said he expects to sign a long-term deal with the Broncos "any day."

"That's just the mindset I have," Miller continued. The quote makes it sound more like Miller is hoping he will get a new deal soon rather than expecting one. The two sides were reportedly very far apart in negotiations just two weeks ago, and franchise-tag deals rarely get done this far before the July 15 deadline. These negotiations are likely to drag on much longer than Miller hopes.
