After months of back-and-forth, former Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller has agreed to a massive contract extension with the Denver Broncos.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Broncos and Miller beat a 4 p.m. ET deadline to agree to terms on a contract extension before Miller would be forced to accept the one-year , $14 million allotment for the franchise tag which Denver placed on him earlier this year.
The agreement is reportedly in the neighborhood of six years and $114.5 million, with $70 million in guaranteed money. That would be a record-breaking total of guaranteed money given to a non-quarterback in the history of the NFL, and the contract would be the largest in Denver Broncos history.
Miller, who was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft after earning back-to-back All-America honors in College Station, signified it was a done deal on Twitter:
