The Denver Broncos on Thursday picked up the fifth year option on Von Miller’s contract.
As far as Peyton Manning is concerned, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders isn’t the only offensive reinforcement summoned to help Denver get another crack at winning the Super Bowl.
Broncos pass-rushers DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller are a lot alike. Both collect lots of sacks, hefty paychecks and plenty of accolades. The two are also on the comeback trail after offseason surgeries following a disappointing season.
Mitch Unrein signed his one-year, $1.4 million restricted free agent tender Monday. The Denver Broncos defensive tackle signed the tender the same day the team’s offseason workout program began.
All the Denver Broncos have to show for their historic 2013 season is the heartache and humiliation of getting destroyed from the opening snap at the Super Bowl.
With less than five months until Week 1 of the NFL’s regular seaon, Peyton Manning knows a lot of work has to be done in a small window of time when it comes to building the chemistry of this year’s Denver Broncos.
After a rough 2013 season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a blown out knee in December, Von Miller made an appearance at a public event 20 pounds lighter and with a rediscovered smile.
Von Miller used to text, call and visit his mentor for pointers on pass rushing.
Before DeMarcus Ware even had a chance to sit down with Broncos boss John Elway, he saw exactly how serious the team was about fixing its defense.
The Broncos spent the first day of free agency bolstering their defensive backfield, agreeing to a four-year deal with Ward on Tuesday afternoon and then hours later reaching an agreement on a six-year contract with Talib.
