The Denver Broncos have been very busy so far this week, especially defensively:
On Monday, March 15 they re-signed DE Shelby Harris to a new 3-year deal and reportedly will sign former Washington CB Ron Darby to a 3-year deal.
On Tuesday, March 16 our iHeart Broncos insider Brandon Krisztal reported Von Miller will be a Bronco in 2021 after the team picked up his $7 million option for the season!
The Broncos reached out to Miller's agent Joby Branion last week about a re-structuring of the contract, but that was rebuffed. So an extension to remain in Denver will remain an option until it's not and in-part how the season plays out will certainly determine if Miller wants to finish his career in The Mile High City, and if the Broncos want the same.
Miller was the 2nd overall pick out of Texas A&M in the 2011 Draft, and the first draft pick President of Football Operations John Elway ever made. All Miller did was live up to the selection, making 8 Pro Bowls in his 10 seasons in Orange & Blue, as well as being named 1st Team All-Pro 3 times. He's also the organizations' all-time leader in sacks with 106 in the regular season, as well as 6.5 in the post-season, In fact, his sack per game average of .79 is only behind Hall of Famer Reggie White, the Steelers T.J. Watt and fellow Aggie, Myles Garrett of the Browns.
In an Instagram Post this morning, it sure looks like Miller wants to be in Denver a long, long time...
