Von Miller Says He Won’t Play 2016 Season on Franchise Tag
Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller took to Instagram today to make a statement to the Denver Broncos.
That's right... If the Broncos and Von Miller can't come to an agreement. Von is saying he will not play in the 2016 season under the Franchise tag.
According to a Denver 7 article, Von Miller rejected a 6 year, $114.5 million dollar contract from the Broncos due to the guaranteed amount of money that would be paid. The multi-million dollar offer only guaranteed $39.8 million in the first two years.
The Broncos placed the franchise tag on Miller and if both the Denver Broncos and the Super Bowl MVP don't come to an agreement on a deal, Miller would have to play the season under a one year $14.129 million dollar salary.
Personally, I am hoping that both sides come to an agreement soon. I would love to see 58 spend the rest of his career as a Bronco in the Mile High City. We love you Von and we don't want you to leave. However, we understand that you know your worth. Us fans are eagerly waiting for football season to start again and we really want to see you on the field as a Bronco come this fall.
