Denver Broncos Place Franchise Tag on Von Miller

Osweiler figures to be a high priority for the Broncos, and Miller recently complimented him for his "leadership qualities", but he wouldn't be unwise to test the market given the lack of free-agent strength at the position.

"DeMarcus is everything - All-American person, All-Pro player", Miller said.

The Broncos enter March with several moving parts, not the least of which are quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. The details of that case have become news again in the wake of Manning's Super Bowl run and a Title IX case against the University of Tennessee being brought by eight female Tennessee students who allege they were sexually assaulted by current and former UT athletes.

Von Miller isn't going anywhere.

If he does end up being let go, Manning could end up with the Los Angeles Rams who have expressed interest in the veteran quarterback, as reported by ESPN. "I think DeMarcus Ware has had a tremendous effect on him, too". "He's a leader, he's a big brother to me, coach, mentor". That's why I'm happy for Von. It was a matter of him channeling all of his talents in the right way and I think you saw him do that this year.

To be fair to the Broncos, though, it's not like John Elway is trying to low ball the Super Bowl MVP, the problem lies in the negotiation process itself in that each side is using prior precedence as discussion points with Miller's agent, John Branion, pointing straight toward South Florida and Ndamukong Suh. We're here today because of him. "I am not really worry about it", Miller declared.

"Those last couple of plays in our game, the connection with him and Gronkowski, I've never seen it before". In just five years, he has already accumulated 60 career sacks, a number that would put him on par to finish his career in the top three all-time in that category. As a franchise-tag player last July, Kansas City's Justin Houston received $52.5-million guaranteed, which Miller could eclipse.

That led NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to say: What an extraordinary player.

King set a franchise record last season by having 40 of his 83 punts downed inside the 20-yard line, an impressive feat considering two of the best punters in NFL history - Ray Guy and Shane Lechler - both played for the Raiders.

Elway has also spoken with agent Pat Dye Jr. about clients Ryan Clady and DeMarcus Ware possibly taking pay cuts.

 

The 28-year-old Norman had four interceptions in the first four games of the 2015 season, returning two for touchdowns.
