A simmering financial dispute between the Denver Broncos and suspended linebacker Von Miller is looming.

Denver will attempt to reclaim $1.25 million of the signing bonus money the team gave their star linebacker, automatically withholding the money from Miller's paychecks when he becomes eligible to play again, league sources said.

But Miller's defense team is convinced the return of bonus money is not included in the settlement it reached with the NFL, sources said.

Miller spent Friday in Washington with NFL Players Association lawyers, going over the terms of his settlement with the NFL. Executives around the league said Denver has no choice but to reclaim Miller's bonus money; it's how the NFL wants its business conducted.

Miller has other ideas. He was already going to lose $800,000 in game checks, and now his losses stand to come out to over $2 million.
