Glory, glory Hallelujah...Von has been signed.
Despite speculation over a rift between Von Miller and John Elway, a fellow Super Bowl MVP, it would appear all is well in Dove Valley once again.
After days of exactly what we expected - drama, drama, panic, drama, DEAL - Von Miller cashed in, and the Internet went crazy as Miller became the highest paid defensive player in NFL history.

A few of Miller's counterparts across the NFL - who were partly responsible for this "Vonster" deal - also chimed in with their congrats:
Well deserved @Millerlite40 Congrats brother ...— fletcher cox (@fcoxx_91) July 15, 2016
Very well deserved. Congrats @Millerlite40!— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) July 15, 2016
Miller himself had a plane to catch immediately after inking the deal so he could make it to Salt Lake City where his former Dancing With The Stars partner Witney Carson is putting on a fundraiser show tonight.
