Von Miller said no to $114.5M from the Broncos. Should he take the deal? | The Tylt
The Denver Broncos just offered linebacker Von Miller a $114.5 million deal over six years. The deal would make Miller the highest paid defensive player in the NFL at $19.1 million annually, but Von Miller and his representatives are still holding out.
Charles Robinson at Yahoo Sports breaks it down here:
The two sides are not close, with a disparity believed to be in the neighborhood of $20 million total over a span of five years. That's a difference of roughly $4 million per season. Two sources familiar with the negotiation pegged Denver's offer as hovering around $18 million per season (roughly $90 million over five years). With the $4 million disparity in mind, that puts Miller's stance at around $22 million annually (roughly $110 million over five years).
Fans argue that the Super Bowl MVP (who's won numerous other awards) is worth every penny. He helped lead the Broncos to the top in the past, and no one else has his particular combination of skill, age and experience. What’s the difference of a few million?
On the flip side, the deal comes with a guaranteed $39.8 million in the first two years. That’s good money. He already injured his knee in 2013 and it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen in the next five. Maybe he should take his already good deal and be happy with it.
Should the Broncos #PayVonMiller or is #VonMillerGreedy?
