Von Miller says the Broncos need Peyton Manning to win Super Bowl
Manning, 39, will enter his fourth season with Denver, after spending his first 13 NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
Last month, he signed a two-year $34 million restructured contract, which converted $4 million of his 2015 base salary into incentives.
“We can win a Super Bowl with Peyton,” Miller said to SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I think that’s the only thing that matters. To win a Super Bowl we need Peyton Manning and I think that he’s going to be able to play at a high level. It’s Peyton Manning. Whatever it is he needs to do, he’s going to do it. That’s one position that I’m just not worried about.”
Miller played all 16 games last season, record 59 total tackles, with 14 sacks.
Manning completed 66 percent of his passes for 4,727 yards with 39 touchdowns, which was second in the NFL, and 15 interceptions last season for Denver, which won the AFC West for the fourth straight year.
Denver lost to Indianapolis 24-13 in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.
