Denver Broncos LB Von Miller is expected to receive the franchise tag before negotiating a long-term deal with the Broncos. Denver must then choose either the exclusive franchise tag or non-exclusive franchise tag. An exclusive tag keeps a player's representatives from negotiating with any other team. It would also guarantee a one-year contract for the average of the top five salaries at the linebacker position, or 120% of Miller's previous year's salary, whichever is higher. The non-exclusive franchise tag would guarantee Miller the average of the top five players at this position, but it uses a five-year data collection to get that number. The non-exclusive tag is most commonly used, and the franchise player salary for linebacker in 2016 is expected to be over $14 million.

The Broncos recorded two interceptions, three fumble recoveries, four sacks and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. LBs Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware are blitzing quarterbacks often and CBs Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. might be one of the best cornerback tandems in the NFL.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas and the Broncos have not agreed on a long-term deal despite the deadline for doing so being Wednesday, July 15. The Broncos have already exchanged proposals with Thomas and his agent, but Thomas wants more money. One reason Denver may be hesitant to pay Thomas more is because LB Von Miller will become a free agent after this season. Miller is expected to cost at least $14 million per year, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas will still play this season on his one-year franchise tender even if he and the Broncos do not agree on a multi-year deal. Thomas is an elite wide receiver both in terms of real football and fantasy football. Deal or no deal, he should be taken in the late-first or early-second round of drafts.

The Broncos run defense has been stiff of late, and it allows defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio to employ an attacking style. Miller has recorded sacks in five straight games, which is the league's longest active streak and one shy of his career high set in 2012.

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:01:39 -0700
Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) has looked surprisingly strong during the team's offseason practices. Miller has done a lot of research and reading on ACL surgeries and is modeling his return after Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's. He is participating at full speed in drills, although he still isn't playing 11-on-11 plays. Miller will be examined in a few weeks by Dr. James Andrews and hopes to be cleared for limited contact by the first or second week of training camp. He expects to be ready for Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: A healthy Miller's sack upside makes him a vaulable IDP target and he is a key component to the Broncos' DT, which is in low-end-starter territory.

"I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better. You come back and be the same guy it's like you go 'it's the same Von again' and I got to be better," Miller said.
Tue, 25 Feb 2014 09:05:02 -0800
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said LB Von Miller grew up a lot this past year while dealing with a six-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy and then suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in December. "He's done a tremendous job of doing the right things and everything he's supposed to be doing. So hopefully he can continue to do that, because we'd love Von to be back to the Von we know he can be," Elway said.
Fantasy Tip: With a full offseason to recover from his torn ACL, Miller should be ready for the start of the 2014 season, although he may be a little slow out of the gates. A full season of Miller should help Denver's pass rush up front.
