What John Elway reaching out means for Von Miller
What doe John Elway reaching out to Von Miller over the weekend mean? It means the star is likely to be back soon…
We love you Von Miller, and we miss having you on the roster. Perhaps our pal and fearless leader John Elway will make that happen very soon…
It was reported on Tuesday that Elway reached out to the Super Bowl 50 MVP over the weekend by ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Broncos and Miller had resumed communicating by Adam Caplan:
The precedence of a minimum $60 million guarantee has been set — multiple times. The Broncos flirted around with some hometown discount prices and Miller has threatened to sit out the season.
There’s nothing left for John Elway to do except either ask Miller to leave or to offer him the money he deserves. What do you really think he’s going to do?
This is how contract negotiations go, unless it’s the beginning of free agency and you’re the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are like a participant on The Bachelor with no actual dates in their life outside of the show. Contract negotiations are typically drawn out, long processes with a lot of ‘he said, he said’ leaked to the media.

We’ve gotten our fair share of that garbage, and now it’s time for brass tax. It’s time to fill up Von Miller’s bank account. It’s time for him to pass ‘go’ and collect $200. It’s time for Von Miller to become the highest paid defensive player in NFL history, and I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if John Elway called him to discuss anything else.
If Elway had called Miller simply to tell him, “Hey, we’re going to let our last offer be our final offer” then there would be no more negotiating. Like I said — Elway either called Miller to tell him they were going to pay up, or to get out.
There is no in between, really.
This is the start of the fourth quarter when it comes to the Miller negotiations. With 10 days left until the deadline, the two sides will reportedly meet this week in an effort to get the deal done with the Broncos’ best player, their franchise cornerstone.
We all know the fourth quarter is where Elway — and now Miller — have made their money and their mark in this league.
