Out of all the high-profile franchise tag cases this spring, the least contentious seems to be between Super Bowl MVP Von Miller Jerseys and the Denver Broncos — and that is just the way Miller likes it.

“My teammates know what type of teammate I am,” he told the Denver Post on Wednesday after providing eyeglasses for nearly 300 local kids as part of his Von’s Vision foundation. “They know what type of guy I am. It’s just the business part of it. There’s really no hard feelings or anything like that. (The Broncos) know what type of guy I am. I’m expecting a deal any day. That’s just the type of mindset I have.”

The last part of that quote — I expect a deal any day — likely says more about Miller than it does the state of negotiations. Denver has a massively important first-round draft pick to make on Thursday and Miller has always been relentlessly positive.

Still, Miller knows that the Broncos can and will break the bank for him. If the team hopes to return to the Super Bowl, they’ll do it on the shoulders of a vicious pass rush like they did in 2015. Neither Mark Sanchez Jerseys or Trevor Siemian (or Sam Bradford or Brian Hoyer Jerseys or Ryan Fitzpatrick Jerseys or Paxton Lynch or Mike Glennon or Colin Kaepernick Jerseys) would be good enough to transform the inherent makeup of this team, which relies on ball control, a strong run game and bootleg option and a stronger defense.

While he waits, Miller seems content trying to win Dancing With The Stars while providing a very nice service for local children along the way. The non-stop media tour has been a welcome distraction of sorts as the July 15 negotiation window slowly creeps in.

“There’s really not anything negative about it,” Miller said. “Of course I want to be there with my guys. Just taking it one day at a time. I’m just working out, dancing, trying to do the best I can with that.”

NFL considering changes to scouting combine

Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY repots that National Football Scouting Inc., which runs the combine, is establishing a committee of NFL executives, scouts, coaches, athletic trainers, team physicians, among others, to jerseys for cheap review all phases of the annual event.

“Our first focus is to look at what we do currently and making sure that that’s relevant,” company president Jeff Foster told USA TODAY Sports. “And if it is, great, we’ll continue to do it, because historical comparison is really important to the evaluation process. But if we believe that there’s something that’s not relevant, then what can we replace it with that will help us evaluate the players?”

Tinkering with the combine is something that has been considered more earnestly in recent years.

The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off this week in Indianapolis. Players will participate in the 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, 3 cone drill and shuttle run.

Routinely criticized as “Underwear Olympics,” teams often find more use in the medical examinations and interviews conducted during the Combine than some of the on-field drills.

“We’re continuing to explore everything in an effort to improve,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pelissero. “So, if there are ways to tweak, improve, modify anything we do, we’ll explore that (and that includes) the combine. The mantra is, how can we get better?”

As data becomes more accessible and easier for teams, agents and players to parse, the tenor of the combine could adjust, making workouts more useful and informative.

“You can get in on a really granular level and analyze these systems — even overlays of some of the stuff they do,” Dr. Marcus Elliott said. “They measure vertical jump, but there’s a lot of ways for two guys to both jump 38 inches. There’s potential for this thing to get so much smarter.”

Peyton’s late TD drive sends Broncos past Steelers

cheapjerseys us

Get ready for another Manning-Brady matchup with a Super Bowl spot on the line. Peyton Manning Jerseys and the Broncos offense came up big on a 13-play fourth quarter drive to beat the Steelers 23-16 Sunday. Here’s what we learned:

1. The Broncos earned the No. 1 seed because of their defense. And their defense wound up making the biggest plays to send Denver to the AFC Championship. Bradley Roby Jerseys’s forced fumble of Fitzgerald Toussaint helped turn the game around in the fourth quarter. And DeMarcus Ware Jerseys pressured Ben Roethlisberger on back-to-back plays to kill Pittsburgh’s attempt at a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter.

“I think our defense is what’s guiding us. cheapjerseys us Let’s be clear,” Manning said after the game.

2. Peyton Manning Jerseys (222 yards on 37 attempts) did not have a vintage performance. But he avoided any big mistakes, survived at least five drops from his receivers, and made the biggest throw of the game when he absolutely needed it. He’s a game manager. Facing a third-and-12 with 8:37 left, Manning threaded the needle on a seam pass up the middle to Bennie Fowler for a 31-yard gain. Denver’s running game did most of the work rest of the way on the game-winning drive. This is a different sort of Manning-led team, but the formula is working.

3. This was the exact recipe that the Broncos used early in the season. Their defense kept an ugly Broncos passing game alive, forced a huge turnover in the fourth quarter, and then Manning came up with some fourth quarter heroics. If nothing else, the Broncos are used to these sort of games. They have made big comebacks throughout the year and have a lot of confidence in their ability to close out tight finishes. One of those comebacks, of course, came against their AFC title game foe — the Patriots.

“I’ve never been apart of a team that handles adversity so well,” Von Miller said after the game.

4. The Steelers will be kicking themselves for not taking advantage of opportunities. They moved the ball well, with 396 yards against the No.1 defense in football. But they couldn’t finish drives. Their cheapjerseys us second drive of the game finished with an attempted 30-yard touchdown kill shot on fourth-and-one. Big Ben, who had plenty of arm strength all day, was late on the throw. A penalty took them out of field goal range in one fourth quarter drive. Aqib Talib Jerseys broke up a pass at the goal line to force a third quarter field goal. And Toussaint’s fumble killed a promising drive, setting up Manning’s heroics.

5. Martavis Bryant led the Steelers with 154 yards receiving. He also led the Steelers with 40 rushing yards. Pittsburgh will be wondering “What if?” all offseason when it comes to Antonio Brown’s concussion. The Steelers looked one offensive piece short for much of the day. Roethlisberger was too often not on the same page with Markus Wheaton, and they couldn’t get a consistent ground game going. Still, an emotional Mike Tomlin didn’t want to talk about the missing players Sunday. They had a fourth quarter lead and the ball in Broncos territory. They had this game.

6. C.J. Anderson Jerseys may have earned a bigger share of the Broncos backfield with this performance. He busted free for a key 34-yard run and generally ran tougher than Ronnie Hillman. Anderson finished out the game after Hillman struggled early, gaining only 38 yards on 16 carries.

7. The Steelers defense finished the season playing at a much higher level than early in the season. James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons and Jarvis Jones were all standouts Sunday. But they weren’t good enough to carry this team on their own. Pittsburgh’s special teams and offense let them down. Denver scored six cheap points early essentially off special teams.
