Broncos defender guarantees Super Bowl win
UNDATED - Denver's star pass-rusher Von Miller is already guaranteeing a Super Bowl title for the Broncos next season. Miller said he's dedicating the season to his 6-year-old cousin who recently emerged from a coma after a car accident in West Texas that also injured his mother and 8-year-old brother.
On Monday, Miller tweeted: "You can post this where ever.. Denver broncos will win the Super Bowl" in the 2013 season. He added hash tags "4UJEREMIAH" and "IGUARANTEEIT58."
Also in the NFL, three-time Pro Bowl selection and 2005 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Shawne Merriman says he intends to file retirement papers, a decision confirmed by the Buffalo Bills. The decision comes a week before he was eligible to become a free agent, and after spending parts of the past three seasons in Buffalo.
The Minnesota Vikings have released wide receiver Michael Jenkins, who played two seasons of the three-year contract he signed with the Vikings after the lockout ended in 2011. He was due a roster bonus of $2.425 million on March 16 and a base salary of $825,000 for 2013. The decision frees up $3.25 million of salary-cap space.
