There have been no contract talks between the Broncos and Von Miller since this weekend, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (video link). Cole also hears that Miller still feels disrespected by the Broncos for the way that negotiations have gone this offseason.
In June, the Broncos offered Miller a larger contract than the deal given to Ndamukong Suh, but the proposal was viewed by Miller’s camp as being largely fugazi due to its structure and lack of true guarantees. Over the weekend, Denver gave Miller a new proposal, but it sounds like they have not upped the cashflow and true money enough to satisfy Miller. Since that revamped offer, there hasn’t been much leaked on the talks between the two sides. Some see the lack of rumors over the last 48 hours as a positive sign, but Cole’s report indicates that things have stagnated and Miller may be taking Denver’s frugality to heart.
The latest offer from Denver would give Miller roughly $61MM in fully guaranteed money, according to Cole, that’s the kind of contract that Miller could be inclined to accept, even if he’s feeling slighted by Denver.
