Will Von Miller return to the Broncos?

The Denver Broncos need pass rush help...and Von Miller said he’s a Broncos for life, right?

Of course, I’m currently hounding the quarterback news because that is THE key thing that is going to help turn this team around...but we can only beat that drum so hard, right?

The other thing I keep thinking about is Von Miller and whether or not he will return to the Broncos. Our fanbase got completely giddy in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl when Von was talking about never wanting to leave and being a “Bronco for life.”

But how much of that is Von just him showing his positive vibes leading up to another championship game?

We’ll see this offseason as the Broncos will have the opportunity to talk to him and his agent to see just how serious Von is about returning. Because he’s still a potent NFL player who can help a team win; Von just isn’t worth paying a premier price for a team like the Broncos.

I’d love to see him come back as a guy like Demarcus Ware who gets spelled often and is rotated more often so that you can maximize his impact as a player. If that can be worked out behind the scenes, maybe that’s worth a pay cut for Miller.

And don’t get me wrong...I am NOT saying Von isn’t worth paying great money. I’m saying that a team like ours isn’t one who can do that. He is an aging pass rusher with a limited shelf-life (especially if you want him on the field for >90% of the snaps).

Hit me up in the comments and let me know what you think!
