Horse Tracks: Von could sign early next week?

Happy Saturday Broncos Country!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to Benjamin Allbright of CBS Sports, he believes that Von Miller should be signed by Tuesday based on everything he is hearing about the situation.

Many have assumed(myself included) that these talks would go right up until the deadline on July 15th, but getting something done prior would be great news.

The Denver Posts Troy Renck backed up Allbright's thoughts by saying that Von would like to get this deal done before the July 15th deadline.

So it sounds like there is at least a chance that this deal gets done before the 15th, and the fact they're talking and continuing the talks this weekend should give make you feel confident about something getting done.

The two sides restarted talks today and have been traded proposals according to reports. One report stated that Von and his agent already rejected one deal, but the positive thing is that they're still continuing the talks despite that.

So it sounds like something will get done sooner rather than later and we can start focusing on the important things again, (like how Paxton Lynch will win the starting job) like Training Camp, position battles, and just football.
