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.”

Lions GM: Drafting QB every year is ‘good football business’

For NFL teams, finding a starting quarterback is vital for success. Finding a quality backup is necessary insurance. And drafting quarterbacks with upside is just smart business.

With a market shortage on quality quarterbacks, landing a player with potential can lead to future success or aid in stockpiling draft picks. The Eagles under Andy Reid were the prime wholesale jerseys example of building up backup quarterbacks then swapping unproven talent for draft picks — i.e. Kevin Kolb.

This offseason, the hot backup name is Mike Glennon, who will wither away behind Jameis Winston if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t cheap nfl jerseys swing a trade. Glennon has starting experience and an NFL arm. There are questions about his ability to be an everyday starter, but in a QB-needy league, a player like Glennon could bring back a solid haul for Tampa.

The New England Patriots are another example of franchise not afraid of adding quarterbacks, despite Tom Brady Jerseys’s presence. They did it with Matt Cassel Jerseys. Ryan Mallett Jerseys always generated buzz (even if it lacked substance). Next offseason Jimmy Garoppolo Jerseys will be the hot name on the trade market along with Bengals backup AJ McCarron — both entering the final year of their rookie deals.

Coming from New England, Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn knows taking swings at quarterbacks in the draft is a calculated risk every good organization should make, even if that swing misses.

“I think it’s really good football business to acquire a young quarterback every year or every other year,” Quinn said, via the Detroit Free Press. “There’s such a value in the position and nowadays in college football there’s a lot of spread offenses, which means it’s a lot different than pro football. So it takes these young quarterbacks time to develop. So if you can add a young quarterback every year or every other year to your roster, it’s good football business in my mind. So you have time to develop them, either on the practice squad or as a backup, before eventually them having to play in a game.”

The Lions haven’t drafted a quarterback since taking Matthew Stafford Jerseys No. 1 overall in 2009. With no developmental quarterback on the roster, expect that to change in Quinn’s first season in Detroit.

The Patriots didn’t fear using a second-round pick in 2014 on a player who might not play a significant snap in his entire tenure with the team. It’s easier to do while shining multiple Lombardi Trophies, to be sure, but it’s also good sense. It will be blatantly clear when we hear next offseason teams are considering sending at first-round pick for Garoppolo.
