ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Denver Broncos has used the 2021 version of star defender Von Miller.
The move marks the final season of a six-year, $ 114.5 million contract that Miller signed in 2016 after performing his Super Bowl 50 MVP.
That guarantees him $ 7.5 million of his base salary of $ 17.5 million.
Tuesday was the deadline to apply his version, or Miller, who turns 32 this month, will become an unlimited free agent. The Broncos wrote on their Twitter page without comment the image of Miller celebrating the team’s Super Cup victory 5 years ago.
Miller has recovered from an ankle sprain that hampered him last season, and he was recently relieved of outgoing concerns when the local prosecutor’s office refused to charge him after an unspecified investigation by Colorado Parkers. police department.
Earlier, the new CEO, George Vor Paton, said he wanted Miller to stay in Denver, but was in control of his legal situation before returning.
Miller’s first call-up to John von Elway in 2011, when he was No. 2 behind Cam Newton, who dominated the Super Bowl 50 to help Denver beat Carolina 24-10 in Peyton Manning’s farewell game.
Miller is the Broncos’ all-time leading scorer with 106 regular-season picks and 25 forced fakes. He is a Pro Bowler eight times.
Last year, he became the first NFL player, the first superstar athlete to announce his contract with COVID-19. After recovering, he embarked on a strong-strength ventilation program, preparing for a big season before he suffered an ankle injury six days before the opening.
The move to keep Miller came a day after the Broncos agreed to a three-year deal with Broncos veteran defender Shelby Harris and cornerback Ronald Darby, who spent last season in Washington.
