The Denver Broncos hunt for Von Miller’s replacement continues. First, the Broncos tried to lure in free-agent Clay Matthews but he wasn’t interested and now they have failed to reach an agreement with Cameron Wake, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Miller is set to miss at least the next three months after undergoing ankle surgery on Friday. Miller had eight sacks in 2019, his worst output since all the way back in 2013.
Wake, as a member of the Tennessee Titans last season, started 2019 on a tear with 2.5 sacks but didn’t get another before heading to IR in November. According to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis, Denver did make an offer to Wake but the two sides couldn’t agree on the numbers.
Wake and Matthews both made our list of 12 free agent pass rushers who would make sense as possible replacements for Miller.
So the search continues for the Broncos to add a veteran pass rusher to the rotation. Fortunately for Denver, they still have $25.43 million in salary-cap space, should another option become available.
