Von Miller contract talks on hold for now

The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) So much for Von Miller's prediction of peaceful contract talks this offseason.

An impasse in negotiations has uncorked the startling possibility that the Super Bowl MVP could sit out the 2016 season.

It's a remote possibility, to be sure, one that could harm his popularity and marketability that have skyrocketed since he wrecked the Carolina Panthers' coronation at the Super Bowl.

But it's an option should the sides fail to reach an agreement on a long-term contract over the next six weeks.

Miller has repeatedly said he wants to be a Bronco for life, but the sides aren't talking after Miller's camp declined to accept Denver's offer by Tuesday night's deadline set by the team.
