The Denver Broncos are hoping to figure out a way to keep Von Miller in the Mile High City for the 2021 season if not the remainder of his NFL career.

Miller has a contract option for 2021 worth $18 million and should the Broncos choose to decline that club option, they would save that $18 million in salary cap space but they would be saying goodbye to a team legend.

That is, unless they can strike up a revised contract to keep the star pass rusher wearing no. 58 in orange and blue.

One of the most recent updates on Miller’s situation came from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, who stated that both parties are hoping something can work out here. Rap Sheet stated in his most recent report on Miller that he doubts Miller hits free agency but he thought that on the chance he did hit free agency, he would have a very robust market.

There’s no question about it.

Even entering his age 32 season, Miller is an impact player. He’s coming off of injury, but the last time Miller was out on the practice field, he was his usual, dominant self.

What teams would be the most intriguing in pursuit of Miller as a free agent?

1. Dallas Cowboys

How crazy would it be if DeMarcus Ware finished his career in Denver and Von Miller finished his career in Dallas?

After missing a few games and hitting a career-low with six sacks in 2013, the Dallas Cowboys moved on from Ware who became part of the Denver Broncos’ vaunted 2014 free agency class.

He was a crucial reason why the Broncos were able to win Super Bowl 50 in just his second season with the team.

Ware was also instrumental in the personal development of Von Miller, who was suspended and injured in 2013. Ware showed Miller how to be a pro, and his presence changed the course of Miller’s career trajectory completely.

Miller, a Texas native, returning to his home state to play for the Cowboys (who are desperate for help in the pass rush department) is something Dallas fans have been dreaming of for quite some time.
