The Denver Broncos visited the White House on Monday to commemorate their Super Bowl 50 victory. Even though the reigning Super Bowl MVP still has not signed his $14.129 million franchise tag yet, it seems the two sides are getting closer to working out a long-term deal.

The Broncos have until July 15th to agree on a long-term deal. Miller would like to become the highest paid defensive player in the NFL which would put him at over $20 million per year.
The Broncos, on the other hand, have said that they do not want to make Miller the highest paid defensive player. It will be interesting to see who caves in or if they just go with the franchise tag.
