Von Miller crops out John Elway from group photo (pic)


Things obviously could be going a lot better between Von Miller and the Denver Broncos on the contract front. And it apparently has reached such a sorry state that the Super Bowl MVP decided to crop out Broncos boss John Elway out of group photo and then posting it on Instagram.

It all started on Friday when DeMarcus Ware shared a photo on Instagram of himself, Gary Kubiak, Von Miller, Peyton Manning, and John Elway when the Broncos were in Washington D.C. for a visit to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl championship.

Shortly thereafter, Miller took to Instagram to share the photo as well, only his version didn’t include Elway.

There’s always the possibility that something happened beyond Miller’s control that inadvertently caused Elway to get cropped-out of the photo. But the odds of that being the reason behind Elway’s omission are slim to none.

Miller, despite saying he’s “optimistic” about how things are progressing as recently as earlier this week, obviously feels he’s in a “Me vs. Management” showdown with Broncos brass over the protracted and increasingly contentious contract negotiations, a situation that seemingly is only getting uglier with each passing day.

But if Miller did in fact purposely crop out Elway from the photo? Well, that certainly illustrates exactly how he feels about both Elway and the Broncos at this particular moment.
