Von Miller on deal: 'Just a time for waiting right now'

Von Miller and the Denver Broncos have until July 15 to strike a long-term deal.

Until then, we wait.

Speaking Wednesday at his charity football camp, Miller didn't feel like discussing his contract situation.

"I just think, where we're at right now, everything has been said. Everything is already in the books right now," Miller told USA Today's Lindsay Jones. "It's just a time for waiting right now. I want all the focus to be on the kids today."

Last week Miller noted that there was "no chance" he plays 2016 under the franchise tag -- a response to his own previous comments that he couldn't see himself sitting out the season. Given that the last time Miller spoke he needed to correct himself, Wednesday's non-comment makes sense.

The biggest sticking points in negotiations are guaranteed money and how much Miller stands to make in the first three years of his deal, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport has previously reported.

These deals usually don't get done until pressed against a deadline. So until July 15, go take a nap, enjoy the fireworks, make sandcastles in the sand. We'll wake you up in three weeks.
