Denver Broncos offseason, trade, and free agency wishlist
Step Two: Bring Von Miller back to Denver
Bring Von Miller back to Denver. The Broncos have a need at pass rush, and even at an older age, Von Miller proved he is still one of the best out there recording 5 sacks in 8 games for the Rams after being traded mid-season. Von added another four sacks in the playoffs en route to a Super Bowl win showing that he can still get it done on the biggest of stages.
After posting some not-so-subtle hints on Instagram and Twitter that he’d like to be back, it should only be fitting that George Paton brings home the best defensive player in franchise history to do what he’s always wanted to do, and that’s winning another Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos.
So what might a deal look like:
Proposed Deal: 3 years, $48.62 million, $31.62 million guaranteed, $5.87 million 2022 cap hit
Details of the deal can be seen here, calculator in the tweet provided by Overthecap.com:
The use of a void year can lessen the blow of the signing bonus across the 3 years of the deal. Chances are, Von wouldn’t stick around to see 2024 in this scenario, but could always stay on a pay cut or extension if he’s still playing at a high level.
