Broncos OLB Von Miller admitted that contract negotiations are weighing on him.
“It just hurts,” Miller said, via SI.com. “I’m not even going to lie. It’s a business but at the end of the day, I got feelings, too. I know some fans don’t know that some of the reports aren’t even true. When I get on Instagram, no matter what I post, there’s going to be 400 comments. Guys bashing me. Take the deal. You greedy bastard. I thought you wanted to be a Bronco for life? And it kind of weighs on you after a while.”
Miller did say that he tries not to think about it too much.
“I don’t like to think about it,” Miller says of the contract. “That’s like negative energy. I’m going to be here.”
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press writes that the Lions plan to use recently signed WR Andre Roberts in both the slot and on the outside, as well as have him compete for the punt return job this summer.
“They expect me to come in here and work hard and earn a spot, just like any of these other guys working hard every day,” Roberts said. “I’m a little behind in the play aspect, but I’m a quick learner.”
Birkett adds that the door is open for Roberts to step up and secure a roster spot with the Lions.
Mason was arrested on drug and traffic charges back in March and is currently away from the team for personal reasons.
Texans NT Vince Wilfork mentioned that he still has “a couple more good years.”
“I said until I feel like I can’t perform at a certain level or my body can’t take it, or I’m mentally not there anymore, it’ll be time for me to hang it up,” via the Houston Chronicle. “But I think I have a couple more good years in me.
“I think, mentally, it’ll go before my body will,” Wilfork said. “To play this game, you have to be mentally there. If you’re not mentally there, I don’t care who you are. You won’t make it.“
