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.
