Von Miller escaped the franchise tag Friday when it was announced he and the Broncos had reached a monster deal, with $70 million guaranteed — the second most in NFL history.

Jets’ defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, according to Jets.com, followed suit Friday just before the franchise tag deadline passed at 4 p.m.

Ian Rappoport says it is a five-year extension and other sources say $50 million is guaranteed in the contract.

In 77 career games, Wilkerson has totaled 372 tackles along with 19 PDs, seven forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

In five NFL seasons the 26-year-old has 36.5 sacks and had 12 last year.
