Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is easily one of the most sought-after free agents this year, but it looks like he won’t be leaving the Mile High City. The Broncos are going to do all they can to keep him around for a long while and Miller is pretty confident about his chances for a long-term deal.
The Super Bowl 50 MVP spoke with ESPN’s Jeff Legwold on Thursday and talked about him getting a long-term deal with the team. He seems very confident that they deal will come soon.
“I put in all the work I can possibly do,” Miller said. “If I was with any other organization, if I was with any other team, maybe I’d be worried about everything, but I’ve got John Elway. He’s played, he’s had experience with this whole process. I feel comfortable. Me and John’s relationship is great: He was there when I was going through stuff and he never wavered. I feel like we won’t waver now either.
“It will be a great experience, and it will be peaceful — there’s no reason for it not to be.”
Since being drafted number two overall by the Broncos in 2011, Miller has been one of the most intimidating players in the NFL. He recorded 16 sacks, including five in the playoffs, during the 2015 season and has recorded at least 12 every year except 2013, when he missed most of the season with an injury.
It will certainly behoove the Broncos to do everything possible to re-sign Miller. If not, it won’t be long before another team scoops him up come March 9.
