Super Bowl 50 may seem like a long time ago, but for the fans of the Denver Broncos, they will surely wish they could return to the heights of last season.

Following their championship win, the Broncos have seen a lot of top quality talent leave the team this off-season and their entire team is now in question.

Denver's fall

With their starting quarterback position in a lot of doubt, the Broncos have a lot of questions to answer on offense this season.

But their defense - which looked like one of the greatest ever last season has taken some big hits this off-season.

After being given the franchise tag by thew Broncos, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller was not subtle about his desire to sign a more lucrative deal with the Super Bowl champions.

Miller has now spoken out on his Instagram page about playing under the franchise tag next season and it's not good news for Broncos fans.

Claiming that there is no chance he will play under the franchise tag in 2016, Miller has issued a very strong declaration that he is prepared to sit out the 2016 season if he has too.

Strangely this post came just 24 hours after an appearance by Miller on the Netflix comedy show 'Chelsea' where he claimed that there is no chance he would sit out next season.

While we still have a month until Miller's ultimatum becomes a very real problem for the Broncos, it is still not something that the Broncos fans will want to see.

This years hold out

It looks like Miller could be 2016's big name who will sit out waiting for his team to bow to his demands, but one year ago, it was Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks in this situation.

Chancellor's hold out went all the way into the season and the Seahawks did pay the price as they were missing one of their more prominent names on defense for the first several games of the year.

The Broncos will surely want to avoid history repeating itself with Miller - although that may prove more difficult than it sounds.
