Von Miller and the Denver Broncos are $20 million total apart in talks on a contract extension for the Super Bowl MVP, reports Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.
The team has reportedly offered Miller $90 million over five years, but Miller has countered with $110 million over five years.
Denver’s offer, which works out to $18 million per year, would make Miller the second-highest paid defensive player in the league behind Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s $19.1 million per year.
Miller, 27, has recorded 210 tackles and 60 sacks over 72 games in his five years with the Broncos after they selected him with the No. 2 pick of the 2011 NFL draft.
