In just 25 hours (and counting) all this Von Miller drama will be over.
Von-watch: Under 30 hours to go.— Jess Place (@Jezru) July 14, 2016
But until then, the misinformed speculation, the unnecessary panic and absurd predictions will dominate the discussion.
Talked to Von's agent. Last time we spoke he was very optimistic. Today, different tone. Didn't sound optimistic about a deal today.— Josh Dover (@JoshuaDover) July 14, 2016
Per Dave Logan....#Broncos and Von Miller are $10 million dollars apart.— Eric Goodman (@EricGoodman) July 14, 2016
A few have had cooler heads while trying to convey the obvious - no public disputes right now is a good sign because all the smart people understand the deal is likely to go down to the wire anyway.
They always do.
Expect a late flurry of leaks that Von Miller & the #Broncos are farther apart than thought, as a leverage play before he ultimately signs.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) July 14, 2016
Both sides digging in. Bunker mentality.— Vic J Lombardi XXI (@VicLombardi) July 14, 2016
Reports of Von Miller upset with negotiations, sides not talking, etc. Which, of course, means there will be a deal tomorrow. #Broncos— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) July 14, 2016
The truth is both sides are likely working feverishly to get the best deal for both sides, and that takes time.
But teammates don't seem to be worried, and if there's anybody trustworthy at this point in the negotiations, it's them.
Plus, Miller himself has been a traveling fool the past two days with Peyton Manning's retirement party, Geek Squad duties and the ESPYs plus a Utah-based Dancing With the Stars fundraiser on Friday.
This does not appear to be a man worried about his contract negotiations.
good mornin'— Von Miller (@Millerlite40) July 14, 2016
If you find yourself unable to stop hitting the panic button, I suggest joining in on a little Twitter fun Ian Henson started - a Kickstarter campaign to let Von know we want him in Denver and we'll give him super cool stuff to stay.
If my new dancing shoes and Ian St. Clair's vinyl Phil Collins' collection aren't enough to bridge the gap, then maybe we don't want him here anyway (kidding, kidding...remember, breathe).
Ultimately, not signing Von is not an option - for John Elway or Broncos Country - so don't panic, Miller is going to be a Bronco for life.
So try this (but ignore my misplaced apostrophe - stupid autocorrect):
Yo, WORLD! Repeat after me: "I am not panicking because there's no way in hell Elway let's Von get away." https://t.co/yMAKRuYzk5— L.Lattimore-Volkmann (@docllv) July 14, 2016
