Von Miller has agreed to a blockbuster $114.5 million contract with the Denver Broncos that includes $70 million in guarantees and makes him the highest-paid non-quarterback in NFL history.
The Super Bowl MVP accepted the six-year offer two hours before Friday's deadline, tweeting a photo of himself with the caption "For Life."
