Like Houston, 26-year-old Miller is an on-the-rise edge rusher. Although Miller served a suspension earlier in his career for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy and has also dealt with a torn ACL, it certainly looks like his best days are ahead. His 14 sacks in 2014 combined with 10 sacks from Ware to make the Broncos one of the NFL’s top pass-rushing teams.
While the production doesn’t match that of Houston in Kansas City, Scotty Payne of SB Nation’s Broncos blog, Mile High Report, thinks it will be there soon and that will boost the Miller-Ware combination to the top of the pass-rushing duo rankings.
The Lions have an astonishing 14.2% of their cap in Calvin Johnson, with an additional 3.7% in receiver Golden Tate and 2.6% in tight end Brandon Pettigrew.
The Broncos have 8.5% of their cap in Thomas and another 3.9% in Emmanuel Sanders. No other player reaches 2.0% in cap allocation.

Washington has 6.6% of their cap in Garcon and 6.3% in Jackson, and an additional 2.6% in receiver Andre Roberts.
The Cowboys have 8.5% in Bryant and 5.7% in Witten. No other player reaches 2.0% in cap allocation.
The Patriots have four players with 2.0% or more of cap space: Rob Gronkowski (6.0%), Julian Edelman (3.2%), Brandon LaFell (2.4%), and Danny Amendola (2.2%).

Mark Trumbo Kids Jersey Bryant reportedly wants a deal with numbers similar to the eight-year deal the Lions gave Calvin Johnson in 2012, with $48 million guaranteed and an annual average north of $16 million. Under the franchise tag, he’d make $12.8 million, fully guaranteed, this season, and Dallas would then have the option to tag him again in 2016 for a one-year deal in the neighborhood of $15.5 million.
