The agent for Von Miller requested permission to seek a trade after the Bronocos made their final contract offer on July 7th, Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reports.
Whether the trade suggestion was a negotiating tactic or serious threat, Elway didn’t blink. He told Joby Branion, Miller’s agent, the Broncos would not be trading Miller and the team’s offer stood as is.
Six days after the trade option was communicated, the Broncos and Miller had reached the Friday deadline to get a multiyear contract done.
The final six-year, $114.5 million deal was structured in a way so that Miller had a solid commitment of four years for $78.5 million, or $19.625 million a year. There would be no relocation hassles, no new defensive system to learn. He would not have to leave his locker room buddies.
