One of the bigger talking points this NFL offseason has been the contract dispute between Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and the Denver Broncos. Despite some reports saying that Miller will sit out if he and the Broncos can’t come to an agreement, he put that talk to rest.
Miller made an appearance on Chelsea Handler’s show, Chelsea, on Netflix, and in a teaser said that he couldn’t see himself playing for another team.
After discussing how terrible Miller’s vision is, the topic of his contract dispute came up. Miller told Handler very honestly:
“I want to be a Bronco forever. And I just want the feeling to be the same from the Broncos.”
After applause from the crowd, Handler asked if there was a chance that Miller would sit out the season, which he denied:
“No. I feel like… we still have a month. I just can’t see myself with any other team. My boys, T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib, Kayvon Webster, DeMarcus Ware, all those guys, I’ve built very, very close relationships with those guys, and I would like to continue to build that for the rest of my career.
Miller certainly isn’t happy with his situation, but it does seem that he would genuinely like to work things out and stick around with the team that drafted him back in 2011. He’s had his ups and downs with the franchise, and this seems to be yet another bump in the road.
Surely the Broncos wouldn’t like to lose the Super Bowl MVP and one of the most feared pass rushers in the league. They feel like they can contend for another Super Bowl next season, but there’s no doubt Miller was a huge piece in their success.
