Negotiating contracts can be a delicate process at times. Agents and front-office types often walk into the room with entirely different numbers in mind, making for a toxic back-and-forth between both sides.
Von Miller believes all will go smoothly in negotiating a new contract with the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos are expected to franchise tag their star pass-rusher in the next few weeks, leaving them the opportunity to negotiate a long-term deal.
"I put in all the work I can possibly do,'' Miller told ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold. "If I was with any other organization, if I was with any other team, maybe I'd be worried about everything, but I've got [executive vice president of football operations/general manager] John Elway. He's played, he's had experience with this whole process. I feel comfortable. Me and John's relationship is great: He was there when I was going through (off-the-field) stuff and he never wavered. I feel like we won't waver now either. It will be a great experience, and it will be peaceful — there's no reason for it not to be.''
Miller also commented on teammate DeMarcus Ware, who carries a $11.6 million cap hit in 2016. The team would save roughly $10 million dollars by cutting him, something Miller believes the Broncos will not do.
"Most definitely, I definitely think he's going to be back,'' Miller said. "We need him back. You saw the job he did, not only with me, but with everybody in the locker room. That alone is worth every penny, then when you add in his pass-rush, all the skill he still has, of course I would like to keep DeMarcus and think he will be back.''
