Von Miller....Does he fit in a 4-3?
Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:14 am
  • Can he play DE in a 4-3? I would gladly say no to Okung, Sweezy, Lane and Irvin if it means we can bring in Miller. Move Mike Bennett back into the DT spot to generate pressure up the middle and then have Miller & Avril bringing heat off the edge.

  • LOL.

    I have the same high in the sky dreams...

    ...Sign Von Miller to huge contract (may have as much a 60 mil in cap room), draft Myles Jack and have that dominating foursome of LBs again in Miller, Bowman, Jack, and Lynch....

    ....but never gonna happen. I can't imagine Denver ever letting Von get away.

  • Yeah, basically.

    To answer the half of the question I wasn't laughing about though: Nah, I don't really think Miller fits as well as 4-3 DE as he does as a 3-4 OLB.

  • Von Miller will be a Bronco for a long, long time. He's not even sniffing Free Agency.

  • Acquiring Miller would guarantee another Bennett hold out.

  • Bennett, Avril and Von Miller on the same team would be amazing. However, keeping Bennett outside and drafting a DT who excells at the pass rush would give you similar results for way lower costs.

    Yes. Fox ran a 4-3 and he was awesome. Thought was here and I want to say I heard PC say it but I may have wanted to hear it, that Bruce was to be used similarly which never materialized to that extent.

  • Franchise tag projection for a DE in 2016 is $15.5m and $14m for a linebacker.

    The worst case scenario for Denver is they use the tag.

    Miller is pretty much set to top Ndamukong Suh's $19m APY though. He's miles better than Suh and has the Super Bowl stock in his favour.

    He will not be on the market and there's no way the Seahawks can afford him.

    A pass rushing DT doesn't fall in the draft.

    I recall the Bruce comparisons, but that was when he still projected as a Leo before his move to SAM. So it's been a while.

  • A player like that, you put him anywhere and he'll be successful.

    And yeah, Pete did compare Bruce to Von Miller when they drafted him. It was obvious then that a "Von Miller" was exactly what he was hoping for.

    Probably have to release Bennett and/or Avril to pay him. Not happening. We are drafting a bunch of folks and signing a few reasonable FA. And paying our own guys. That will disappoint some, but I will hold to that prediction.

  • Von Miller would fit into any defense. He would not fit into our salary cap situation.

  • Why can't we rush Bruce Erwin like they rush Van Miller? Isn't Bruce as fast as Van Miller?

  • While we're at it maybe we can trade a 7th round pick for Antonio Brown and talk Josh Norman into taking the vet minimum to play opposite Sherman.
