The Denver Broncos have scheduled a phone meeting with Super Bowl MVP Von Miller in hopes of ending their contract impasses, ESPN reports.
The two sides reportedly will talk today -- one week before the deadline for franchised-tagged players to sign long-term deals.
Miller, 27, has stated that he will not play under the franchise tag in the upcoming season. And there has been little progress in regard to an extension, despite Broncos GM John Elway reportedly speaking with Miller last weekend. The sticking point in the negotiations is the amount of guaranteed money in the deal.
Miller started all 16 games last season, finishing with 11 sacks and four forced fumbles. In the Broncos' three playoff games, the linebacker added five more sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. He was named a First-Team All Pro for the second time and a Pro Bowler for the fourth time.
In his five-season NFL career, Miller has 60 sacks and 17 forced fumbles.
