Broncos better have Miller's money!
After contentious, back-and-forth contract negotiations, Von Miller signed a historic six-year, $114.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos on Friday, with $70 million in guarantees by March 2018. The guaranteed cash helps make Von the highest paid defensive player in NFL history.
"This is something I really wanted — to stay with the Denver Broncos," the Super Bowl 50 MVP said in a statement released by the team, as reported by NFL.com. "I am so appreciative and grateful for this opportunity."
Upon landing the major bag, Von took to his Twitter account and said:

Perhaps Josh Norman, who signed a five-year, $75 million deal ($51.1 million guaranteed) with Washington in April, said it best.
Left with bags, indeed.
Dinner on Von!
