ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Super Bowl MVP Von Miller practiced both pirouettes and patience this offseason.While his dance moves didnt earn him the title on Dancing With The Stars, Millers stare-down in contract negotiations paid off Friday when he signed a six-year, $114.5 million deadline deal with the Denver Broncos that includes $70 million guaranteed.Thats almost double the guaranteed money the Broncos were offering him in June.Miller received $23 million at signing and will earn $61 million over the first eight months of the blockbuster deal that makes him the highest-paid player outside of quarterbacks in NFL history.Miller thanked team owner Pat Bowlen, president and CEO Joe Ellis, general manager John Elway and coach Gary Kubiak for making this possible.Im also thankful for the way my teammates and our fans have supported me, Miller said in a statement. Im excited for the future and ready to get back to work.Miller and agent Joby Branion parlayed patience into a record-breaking deal in terms of overall value and guarantees. Last month, Millers camp rejected the $38.5 million the Broncos offered in guarantees, and Miller threatened to sit out the season barring a long-term deal.Elway bolstered the offer over the last week and now the man who almost single-handedly destroyed Carolinas championship dreams will lead Denvers title defense that begins Sept. 8 against those Panthers.Im happy that both sides were able to broker a deal that works for both sides, Branion said. Thats the mark of a good negotiation. The Broncos are happy to have Von back and Vons happy to be back.Miller was in Utah on Friday for an appearance with Whitney Carson, his partner on Dancing With The Stars, and Elway was overseas.Congrats (at)Millerlite40! Excited for what the future holds for you & our team, Elway tweeted. Proud of everyone for getting it done.The cornerstone of the leagues best defense accepted the Broncos blockbuster offer two hours before Fridays deadline, tweeting a photo of himself in his orange No. 58 jersey with the caption For Life.Both the overall value of the deal and the guaranteed money are records for nonquarterbacks. The only player with more guaranteed money is Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, the leagues highest-paid player. The six-year, $140 million contract Luck signed last month includes $75 million fully guaranteed.The next few years will determine whether Millers deal is a win-win in Denver. But its already a huge victory for the versatile outside linebacker who has 60 career sacks in five seasons.This contract checks off all the boxes for Miller -- the biggest overall deal for a non-QB in league history, most guaranteed money for an NFL defensive player and a benchmark contract that raises the bar for the next superstar.In June, Millers camp agreed to the parameters of the Broncos six-year offer that slightly exceeded the $114.375 million Miamis Ndamukong Suh received in 2015 in becoming the leagues highest-paid defender. But they asked for millions more in guarantees.Fletcher Cox quickly established a new floor for Miller with his $63.3 million in guarantees, and Lucks deal raised the ceiling for Miller, the star of Super Bowl 50.After Elway put his exclusive franchise tag on him, Miller skipped the Broncos offseason program, joining his teammates only for their White House visit and ring ceremony. But Miller stayed in tip-top shape, in part by doing all that dancing on ABCs prime-time hit show.Miller, the second overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, has 60 career sacks and has bounced back from a 2013 season that was derailed by a suspension and a knee injury that sidelined him for the Broncos Super Bowl loss to Seattle.Miller predicted peaceful contract negotiations 12 hours after spearheading Denvers 24-10 win over Carolina in this years Super Bowl. But things got thorny last month after details of Denvers June 7 offer became public. Miller cropped Elway from a photo on his Instagram account and then said there was no way hed play this season on the franchise tag.The two of them patched up their differences as talks reignited and the man Elway has called the best player hes ever seen will be back in uniform when the Broncos report to training camp.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Dam . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Curtis Samuel swept in for a 15-yard touchdown after Ohio State barely converted a fourth-and-1 and the second-ranked Buckeyes beat No. 3 Michigan 30-27 in double overtime Saturday to win one of the greatest games in the history of one of college footballs greatest rivalries.Facing fourth-and-1 from the 16, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer decided not to kick a potential game-tying field goal with a kicker who had already missed two short ones in regulation.J.T. Barrett kept it on fourth down and slammed into the back of his blocker, A.J. Alexander, right at the line to gain. The first-down call stood up to video review.That was not a first down, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. Im bitterly disappointed with the officiating today.On the next play, Samuel, who had made a swerving, change-of-direction run to set up the fourth-and-1, found a lane and raced into the end zone to win it.The scarlet-clad crowd soon covered the field. The first game to go to overtime in the 113-game history of the rivalry likely eliminated Michigan from the playoff race and could have locked up a spot for the Buckeyes.The Buckeyes will have to wait until Penn State plays to find out if they will play for the Big Ten title. Still, they added to a resume thhat already was impressing the College Football Playoff selection committee.ddddddddddddMichigan could end up in the Rose Bowl, but the biggest prizes are still eluding the Wolverines in their second year under coach Jim Harbaugh, who dropped to 0-2 against Meyer and the Buckeyes. Michigan has not won the Big Ten since 2004.But if this is just the start of a new Ten Year War for Michigan and Ohio State, with Meyer and Harbaugh playing the roles of Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler, there is much for to look forward to for college football fans.Ohio State wiped out a 10-point third-quarter deficit and dominated the fourth quarter, but Tyler Durbin missed a 20-yard field goal to tie it with 7:01 remaining.Barrett and the Buckeyes gave him another chance, this time from 23 yards with a second left in regulation and Durbin nailed it.Barrett scored on a quarterback draw and Ohio States first possession of OT to give the Buckeyes the lead, but Michigan tied it on a 5-yard touchdown pass on fourth down from Wilton Speight to Amara Darboh.--More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .
