A contentious week between Von Miller and the Denver Broncos finally came to an end on Friday, and it ended exactly how you thought it would end: with a social media snub.
Before we get to that though, let's rehash what happened this week: The Broncos offered Miller a six-year, $114.5 million contract, but Miller didn't take it because he didn't think the team was offering enough guaranteed money up front.
It's not completely clear how much Miller wants, but it's definitely more than the $39.8 million that the Broncos were willing to guarantee through the first two years of the contract. After Miller turned the deal down, the Broncos decided to cut off negotiations and that's where we stand now.
Miller clearly isn't happy with the man leading the Broncos' negotiations, John Elway, and he proved it on Friday with a simple picture that he posted to Instagram.
Let's take a look.
Now, I know what you're probably thinking, "Wow, that's a wonderful picture of DeMarcus Ware, Peyton Manning, Von Miller and Gary Kubiak. How exactly is that snubbing Elway?"
Well, it's snubbing Elway because the picture actually used to include Elway.
The picture Miller posted was originally from DeMarcus Ware's Instagram page.
Here's the original picture that Ware posted.
Now here's both pictures together.
This definitely feels like one of those games where you have to find all the differences in two photos. Also, smart move by Miller to keep his head coach in the picture.
Anyway, it's completely possible that it's just a coincidence that Miller cropped out Elway in the same week that the Broncos cut off negotiations with him, but I'm guessing it's not.
Of course, this will all be forgotten if the Broncos and Miller eventually reach a long-term deal. The two sides have until July 15 to get something done.
