Three star players who are long shots to reach long term deals before deadline 0. .

The deadline for NFL teams to reach long-term extensions with franchised players is Friday, June 15th. There are a few players who are still in discussions with their teams including, Von Miller, Alshon Jeffery, and Eric Berry.

The Denver Broncos and Miller have been far apart on negotiations the entire offseason. The Broncos are hopeful they can reach a deal with their reigning Super Bowl MVP linebacker. Miller wants a long term deal and has even threatened to not sign the franchise tag. Miller always wanted $70 million guaranteed and according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport it looks like he may have got his wish:

The Chicago Bears and their star wide receiver Jeffery are not expected to reach a long-term agreement because the franchise tag is set at $14.6 million and the Bears are looking for an amount under that. ESPN’s Adam Schefter even reports that a deal will not happen between the two sides unless there is an “unlikely change.”

Which leads us to the Kansas City Chiefs and Berry. After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2014, Berry had a very nice comeback season this past year. The Chiefs slapped an $11 million franchise tag on Berry and now reports are coming out that it is unlikely the two sides will reach a deal.
