The Denver Broncos have reached contract agreements with all of their selections from the 2011 NFL Draft. No. 2 overall pick Von Miller received a four-year contract worth $21 million. The entire contract is guaranteed.
Safety Rahim Moore's signing was announced just moments after John Elway made the Miller signing on Twitter. The contract numbers for the other players are:
Orlando Franklin, $4.361 million total ($1.668 million bonus)
Quinton Carter, $455,000 bonus
With all of the rookies in the fold (except Nate Irving), the Broncos can now get down to the business of seeing what kind of game these players have against NFL players. Can Von Miller become a feared sack artist? Will Rahim Moore be the ballhawk we hope he can be? With either of the tight ends emerge as a serious receiving threat?
It all begins now.
Here is a complete list of the Broncos' draft selections (signed players in italics):
|1||Von Miller||OLB||Texas A&M|
|46||Orlando Franklin||T||Miami (FL)|
|67||Nate Irving||ILB||N.C. State|
|129||Julius Thomas||TE||Portland State|
