The Denver Broncos have proposed a six-year, $114.5 million deal to linebacker Von Miller that includes $39.8 guaranteed in the first two years and Miller has declined that offer. That deal is $19 million per year. I believe he is worth more than that. He is going to get 20 million a year or more whether it is with the Broncos or not, so John Elway has to make a choice sooner or later.
If people think that Von Miller is not smart for accepting this offer, here’s where you are wrong:
-Super Bowl MVP
-4× Pro Bowl (2011,2012, 2014, 2015)
-2× 1st-team All-Pro (2012,2015)
-2× 2nd-team All-Pro (2011, 2014)
There aren’t many defensive players in the NFL that are worth QB money, but he is one of them. If Ndamukong Suh can get almost $60 million guaranteed with the deal from Miami, Miller deserves more than the contract they are offering him. Outside Linebackers impact the game much more than Defensive Tackles.
