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.

The Broncos placed their exclusive franchise tag on Miller in March, keeping him under team control for the 2016 season. Miller has previously said he wants to play the rest of his career in Denver.

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.
