Von Miller will be attending the Denver Broncos’ ceremony for the Super Bowl 50 rings. This has been said by sources who said that the linebacker will be coming, despite having issues with his contract negotiation.
Three sources close to ESPN have said that Miller will be attending the Broncos’ ring ceremony. The event will be attended by the team’s players, coaches and team staff. There are sources who say Miller is still upset over how negotiations were going with the Broncos. Earlier it has not been clear whether the linebacker would be attending the event.
There have been reports earlier that have said that Miller might not be going to the event. The event will be closed to the public as well as the media and held at the Sports Authority Field in Denver.
Former Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler has said earlier that Miller might not likely attend due to negotiations not going well, as reported by CBS Denver.
Negotiations about Miller’s contract has not moved forward because of the issue about how guaranteed money is structured in the team, Bleacher Report reports. Despite the Broncos offering him $114.5 million for 6 years, a deal hasn’t been reached yet.
Both sides will have to agree before July 15 or else Miller will have to play for a one-year tender of $14 million. The Broncos have placed Miller as an exclusive rights player, which makes him unable to enter into deals or receive offers from other teams.
Before negotiations have reached a deadlock Miller had been hopeful about a long-term lucrative contract. He said at the White House ceremony honoring the Broncos that he was optimistic about where it was going. Talks about his renewal have been going throughout much of the offseason and will likely continue before the July 15 deadline.
