Broncos signed OLB Von Miller to a six-year, $114.5 million contract.
The deal contains $70 million guaranteed, including $23 million in signing and roster bonus payments within the next 14 days. Miller announced the news on Twitter with two words: "For life." It took a turbulent month of negotiations with plenty of bad mouthing and even the occasional passive aggressive Instagram post, but the two sides were always destined to reunite. It's essentially the same framework as the landmark deal Ndamukong Suh signed last offseason but includes more guaranteed money. The reigning Super Bowl MVP is now under team control through 2021. With Miller back on board, Denver's defense will continue to pose a daunting weekly challenge for enemy quarterbacks. Jul 15 - 2:16 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos and Von Miller are "closing in" on a six-year, $114 million contract that includes $70 million guaranteed.

Cha-ching. It's easily going to be one of the richest deals in league history. According to RapSheet, the $70 million will be "fully guaranteed" by March of 2018. This deal is getting done. Expect an announcement shortly.

NBC Denver reports Broncos franchise player Von Miller is expected to accept a six-year, $114.5 million extension that includes $70 million guaranteed before Friday's deadline.

The years and total money have been in place for over a month. It appears the Broncos upping their guarantee to $70 million is what's pushing talks toward the finish line. The guaranteed money would easily be the most ever for a defensive player, and second only to Andrew Luck in NFL history.

NBC Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos are expected to "hold firm" at $70 million guaranteed in extension talks with franchise player Von Miller.

Klis also reports six years and $114.5 million remains the framework, and that a deal is "expected Friday." Both the guaranteed money and average annual value would be the most ever for a defensive player. If Miller turns it down, he's insisted he'll seriously consider sitting out the 2016 season. The deadline is 3ET Friday afternoon.
Jul 14 - 8:02 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos have made "significant progress" in long-term talks with franchise player Von Miller, and are now offering in excess of $70 million guaranteed.

Per Rapsheet, "optimism has grown for all involved," and talks are "headed in the right direction quickly." The $70 million guaranteed would be by far the most in league history for a defensive player. An agreement seems all but inevitable before Friday afternoon's deadline. Miller doesn't want to sit out the 2016 season.
Jul 14 - 7:20 PM

Profootballtalk reports the Broncos remain "hopeful" a deal gets done with franchise player Von Miller ahead of Friday afternoon's deadline.

Per Mike Florio, the Broncos believe "a lot of progress has been made." Florio also reports both sides have gone radio silent. Roughly 26 hours remain to hammer out an extension.
Jul 14 - 1:48 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis is "not so sure" the Broncos will finalize a long-term agreement with franchise player Von Miller by Friday's deadline.

Longtime Broncos beat man Klis takes issue with the "prevailing assumption within the NFL industry" that Miller signing long term is a probable done deal. After Miller was "hurt" by the Broncos making contract talks public, Klis believes there is a "personal element in these negotiations that can’t be discounted." The smart money remains on the Broncos getting Miller signed, but Klis' skepticism is certainly notable as the deadline approaches.
Jul 13 - 9:08 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos have not yet resorted to "Plan B", which would be trading franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller.

Trading Miller would be a last resort, but Miller has insisted all offseason he will not play on the franchise tag. He seems serious about sitting out the 2016 season if need be, which would then make him a free agent next March since the Broncos wouldn't have the ability to tag him again for a second-straight year. A trade would be ultra-complicated, as the Broncos would want big-time compensation, and the new team would have to negotiate a long-term deal with Miller before a deal. It's not very realistic this close to Friday's deadline.
Jul 11 - 6:13 PM

Appearing on ESPN, Von Miller stated he will not play 2016 under the Broncos' franchise tag.

"No, I’m not gonna play on the franchise tag," said Miller, whose tag is worth over $14 million. "It just doesn’t make sense in any way." Miller went so far as to call franchise tags a "league-wide problem that I feel like I’m in a situation to help out with." Miller's comments suggest he might seriously contemplate sitting out the 2016 season if no long-term deal is reached. The Broncos and Miller have until Friday to work something out.
Jul 11 - 4:46 PM

The Broncos will resume contract talks with franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller on Monday.

The two sides will take a day to catch their breath after exchanging multiple contract proposals over the last few days. Miller spent most of last month sulking after negotiations went public but he's come around and now there's optimism a deal will be reached by Friday's deadline. The Broncos' current offer calls for $114 million over six years with three years and $61 million guaranteed.
Jul 10 - 12:58 PM

The Denver Post reports the Broncos feel they are now "in a good place" with franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller following late-week movement in long-term contract negotiations.

Broncos GM John Elway "made multiple proposals to Miller on Thursday and Friday," ultimately increasing the team's offer. The Denver Post reports Miller's camp "mulled" the improved proposal on Saturday. Miller's preference is to finalize a deal before the July 15 deadline, rather than let it go down to the last minute like Demaryius Thomas last year. It would not be surprising to see the sides reach an agreement by the middle of next week.

Franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller wants to sign before the July 15 deadline.

Miller has leverage to wait things out, but the sides are close to an extension. Denver sent a counter on Friday after their first two offers were rejected. Miller is expected to land a six-year, $114.5 million deal, with at least the first three years guaranteed.
Jul 9 - 2:49 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos submitted an improved offer to franchise-tagged OLB Von Miller on Friday afternoon.

#AsExpected, negotiations have heated up as the deadline draws near. The Broncos submitted an offer which essentially guaranteed the third year of the deal Thursday, Miller's camp responded with a counter Friday morning, and GM John Elway submitted an improved offer Friday afternoon. Miller reportedly wants to "sleep on" the new proposal before making a decision. Despite some posturing last month, all signs point to this deal getting done by the July 15 deadline.
Jul 9 - 9:02 AM

Despite receiving a revised contract proposal with more guaranteed money, franchise player Von Miller is reportedly still unsatisfied with the Broncos' offer.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post confirms the new offer was submitted on Thursday. The Broncos offered to guarantee the third year of Miller's contract, but apparently that wasn't enough to close the gap. Per Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, Miller is still steamed that negotiations went public and is willing to let the Broncos sweat. This sort of back and forth is all part of the negotiating process. We still fully expect the sides to reach an agreement, probably at the last minute before the July 15 deadline.
Jul 8 - 1:25 PM

According to ESPN's Ed Werder, the Broncos are now willing to guarantee the third year of a long-term deal to franchise player Von Miller.

Previous reports had the Broncos only willing to guarantee the first two years of a proposed six-year deal. Guaranteeing year three is pretty standard for big-money players and could be the move that pushes this to the next level of completion. Signs point to Miller and the Broncos reaching a deal before July 15.
