The Most Important Things We Know After NFL Week 3
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Week 3 of the NFL season ― the last before the first string of byes ― is known as a defining week of football. Contenders and pretenders become far more evident, and hot quarterback play often halts with road tests. Week 3 of the 2016 season only reaffirmed this. Here are the three most important things we learned. The Eagles Are For Real  This shouldn’t have been much of a question mark, but after completely dominating Pittsburgh in a 34-3 rout, we can confidently call the undefeated Eagles the real deal. As we examined last week, it all starts with 23-year-old rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, who has yet to commit a single turnover while amassing a 103.8 quarterback rating ― seventh best in the league ― along with five touchdown passes. Wentz has developed an instant connection with young receivers Jordan Matthews (204 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Nelson Agholor, both of whom struggled immensely in 2015 with Sam Bradford under center. And Wentz has been buoyed by a surprisi...

Sources: Von Miller, agent have phone meeting with Broncos
ABC News - almost 2 years
The Denver Broncos had a phone discussion Friday with pass-rusher Von Miller and agent Joby Branion about his contract, league sources told ESPN's Ed Werder. The Broncos recently modified their offer to Miller and would fully guarantee the third year of their proposed six-year, $114.5 million contract, which would begin in March 2017. The matter of how much, and how quickly, Miller would be paid in guaranteed money in a new deal has been a sticking point between the sides. The changed timeline of guaranteed money was first reported by 9News and confirmed by ESPN. The deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign multiyear contracts is July 15. The total value of the Broncos' proposed contract would be the richest deal ever given to a defensive player. Earlier this week, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Broncos general manager John Elway had personally called Miller over the Fourth of July weekend to express a desire to work out a...
