NFL

The Denver Broncos organization has more on its mind than Aqib Talib’s gunshot wound. They are now reportedly still trying to sign an agreement with their franchise linebacker Von Miller. The offer on the table is  $114.5 million over 6 years. The issue apparently is the how much of the money is guaranteed. The Broncos have offered $35 million in the first 2 years while Von Miller’s reps have asked for a number closer to $69 million. Even though Von Miller hasn’t attended the Bronco’s off-season practices, he did join the Team in meeting President Obama at the White House this week.
