It looks like the longest saga of this NFL off-season is set to draw to a close and all parties are going to be happy with it's resolution.

The Denver Broncos now look set to sign Super Bowl MVP Von Miller to a big money contract ahead of Friday's deadline.

Time is ticking away

The Broncos placed the franchise tag on MiIller following his incredible performance in Super Bowl 50, but since then there have been constant questions.

The two have had spells of not talking about a new long term deal and then trying to negotiate to get something sorted.

Now just a day before the deadline, it looks like it finally going to happen as the Broncos have offered Miller a huge contract that would see him become the highest paid defensive player in the league.

Denver have offered Miller a six year $114 million contract with up to $70 million of guaranteed money.

$59 million would be guaranteed within the first nine months of the contract and a further $11 million guaranteed after that.

The deal is similar to that signed by Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck earlier this Summer which will keep him in Indianapolis for a long time coming.

There is some serious money on the table for Miller now and if he were to accept the Broncos latest offer, he would actually out earn luck by $12 million.

It now comes down to the player himself and his team of negotiators to decide if they will accept the offer or not and see if Miller will be staying in Denver.

A testing year

2016 will be a tough year for the Super Bowl champions having lost both their starting and their back up quarterbacks this summer.

With Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler moved to the Houston Texans, the Broncos now turn to the likes of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and rookie Paxton Lynch.

The Broncos - like last year could struggle on offense again but they won the Super Bowl based on their defense and who would want to rule them out of doing it again?
