According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Von Miller is not expected to reach a long-term deal with the Broncos before Tuesday's deadline. It's likely that Miller will receive the Franchise Tag.

On Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that the Broncos were "poised" to push for a mega long-term extension before the March 1st deadline.

There was another report on Thursday by NFL Network's Rand Getlin saying the Von Miller's reps and the Broncos were going to meet on Friday to discuss an extension.

General Manager John Elway took the podium on Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine, and seemed pretty optimistic about a deal getting done.

"We’re in discussions with Von. We’ve exchanged some offers. We continue to be able to meet with his representatives. We feel good about it. Obviously with the career that he’s had already and the way that he played this year, we’re very hopeful that we’ll be able to get something done."

Those meetings happened, but it appears they did not make enough progress to agree to an extension before the deadline.

This means the Broncos will likely place the Franchise Tag on Miller before the Tuesday deadline. The totals for those tags were announced on Friday and it appears that the Broncos will be paying Miller $14.129 million next season.

The next step of the process will be working on a long-term extension with Miller. Both sides will have until July 15th to work on a deal. So it's possible this could drag on like it did with receiver Demaryius Thomas last season.

I still think it's likely that the Broncos and Miller will agree to something before the July 15th deadline. It would have been nice to have something done before Free Agency opened, but it will get done eventually.
