The news came just a couple of hours before the deadline for players with the franchise tag to sign a long-term deal, allowing Broncos fans to to exhale and now officially look forward to defending their Super Bowl crown.
Von, who is now the highest paid defensive player in the league is really pumped up.

Seeing how Von Miller has been able to turn his career around is truly amazing.
Von, who was suspended six games by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, was also arrested that year for failing to appear in court.
Seeing someone be able to overcome that and not only win a Super Bowl but also be Super Bowl MVP and follow it up by becoming the highest paid defensive player in the league is something awesome.
Well deserving, Von.
