    Glad we could get something for him
    More like WE haven't been worth a thing since SB 50.

      This means we've given up on the season right? Then Vic, Shurmur, and McMahon can all get going.

        Lets see...

        2015, the year we went on to win The SB, in which Von Miller was the king of the castle:

        16 games / 11.0 sacks / 35 total tackles

        2021

        7 games / 4.5 sacks / 19 total tackles....

        ....based on 16 game projection

        16 games / 10.3 sacks / 43.4 total tackles


        Sure, not an apples to apples comparison, but lets not forget Von's more youthful age in '15, plus the folks he had surrounding him.

          Von Miller was my favorite Bronco ever since we drafted him, and one of the best defensive players we've ever had! He will do a symbolic retirement here later and will certainly be in our Ring of Fame, eventually.

          Thanks for all your game-changing plays like these, Von:










          Broncos Country loves you and we're grateful for your contribution to our legacy.

          I wish you the very best of fortune in L.A. and hope you get another ring!


          Superbowl 50 MVP Von Miller on February 7th, 2016

              Just learned that the Broncos paid 9 mil of the remaining 9.7 mil owed...so that's how we were able to secure 2 picks. It will be well worth it if we hit big on one of these.

                If Von is healthy, I can see this as a win win trade. If he plays like he still can, The Rams should be the #1 ranked team. And given his age, the draft picks are looking quite valuable.

                  I said I would be happy yesterday if we got a 3rd.

                  2nd and 3rd good deal for us.

                  Pretty sure if Von stays healthy will be good for Rams. With Donald and Ramsey it will be a great opportunity for Von to display what he has left.
                  Lets Ride!

                    I'm hoping some needy team will bite on Fant and Lock.

                      Von Miller exemplifies the power of a high draft pick, if used wisely. SB 50 was Von Miller dominance!

                        Very pleased with getting a 2nd and 3rd. With age and injuries thought it would be a 3rd at best. Good for Von, Rams and the Broncos.

                          Any significant trades as you propose will be taking the Bronco’ 1st rounders and beginning with f each rd picks.

                          More likely these are the “replacement player” the FO will be putting on the field.

                          Sorry to see Miller go. Not just his Bronco legacy but as confirmation that the FO has quit on the season as much as the coaches and players.


                          Ok...look at it this way....high 3rd + high 4th
                          sound better?

                            This from someone who has no idea of his stats after 2016 ( Dancing w stars). Very successful 2017, 2018, 2019 years. 2020 was an injury year, A Hall Of Fame career.

                              I like the sound of 2nd and 3rd rounders better. That's what they are. There are plenty of good players to be found in that range of picks. And as you know, they can be used in a package, to move up if necessary. Packages can be the difference between a good player and a great one.

                                I don’t think there is a fire sale about to happen. The Broncos may have the cap space for it, but contenders probably don’t. How many players are the Broncos supposed to pay to play for other teams?

                                Good for Von that he got traded to a contender.
