Bills Give Von Miller His 2nd Career $100M Contract

    • The fully guaranteed $45 million cracks the top 10 for most ever for a non-QB.
    • Buffalo is now the favorite to win the Super Bowl (+650*).

After trading for Russell Wilson, the Broncos seemed poised to bring OLB Von Miller back to Denver for another Super Bowl run.

Instead, Miller spurned his former team for a massive contract, becoming the first defensive player in league history to sign two $100 million contracts — and joining a contender that could make it three rings with three teams.

On Wednesday, the Bills signed Miller to a six-year, $120 million contract — which includes $51.5 million guaranteed and $45 million fully guaranteed at signing.

  • The fully guaranteed money cracks the top 10 for most ever for a non-QB.
  • The Josh Allen-led Bills are now the odds-on favorites (+650*) to win SB LVII.
  • With a title, Miller would be the first player to play on three different championship-winning teams.

Miller joins an elite Bills defense, ranking first in yards per game (272.8), points per game (17.0), and DVOA in 2021.

Buffalo hasn’t ignored the other side of the ball, though, signing TE O.J. Howard to a one-year, $3.5 million pact that will form a formidable tight end duo with Dawson Knox.

However, if the Bills are going to make the most of Miller, they’ll have to factor in diminishing returns: The SB 50 MVP hasn’t hit double-digit sacks in a regular season since 2018, racking up just one forced fumble over that time period.
