  • Von Miller's 2015 option - $9.8m

    After the salary cap was finalised today at $133m, the Franchise Tags and Transition Tags were set for 2014.

    The Transition Tag for Linebacker is $9.8m and that will be the Broncos 2015 option year salary for Von Miller if they wish to take it up. Most of the media believe that all top 10 picks from 2011 will get these options picked up.

    Newton/Locker/Gabbert $14.7M,
    Dareus $8.1M,
    Miller/Smith $9.8M,
    Green/Jones $10.2M,
    Peterson $10.1M,
    Smith $10.0M.

    Barring further major ****ups, Denver has to pick it up.

      Hopefully he's feeling some urgency to get his **** together.

        Unless he gets suspended for the season I don't foresee a scenario where it isn't picked up.

        Gabbert is not getting his option picked up. He is getting replaced.

          Well now we know I was wrong. He doesn't have 2 yrs to get his big payday, he has 2014 to prove he is worth a long term deal.

          Otherwise he probably gets released and has to prove himself all over again.

          He can't get injured, he can't get in trouble, he has to get double digit sacks.

          I think he gets it done because he is a good football player regardless of where he lines up.

              If he maintains the level he's been at that's a bargain. Ideally, though, he proves himself off the field to an extent that the FO is comfortable inking him long term. Capability of being one of the greatest Broncos defensive players of all-time if he keeps his **** together. I really hope that is how it pans out.

                honestly, i'd expect the team to work out an extension if he returns to form next season instead of the almost 10 million for 2015.

                  That's probably a bargain price for him, assuming he returns to form. It's slightly lower than the current franchise tag number for DE/OLB.

                    That's the thing. It's crap-or-get-off-the-pot time, Von.

                    It's ridiculous that we're even having this conversation, by the way. Can you imagine how ludicrous it would have sounded a year ago?

                      Trade him to Dallas for Dez Bryant.

                          Too late to keep his **** together, Maybe if he can put his **** back together.

                            Miller has something like 300 chances per year for the rest of his career to reach strike 3. So in a statistical probability sense, his year-long suspension is a foregone conclusion.

                              Locker and Gabbert are likely not going to get those options lol
                              Especially Gabbert, Locker has a chance to redeem himself but doubtful.
