ESPN Insiders Chris Mortenson and Adam Schefter reported Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller would be suspended “at least” six games do to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
On Tuesday, Miller told the collected media in Denver he had not heard from the NFL yet, but hoped for a “speedy, fair resolution.”
Miller, who met with NFL Player’s Association officials on Thursday, expected to hear from the league regarding an appeal on Tuesday, but instead was on the practice field with his teammates.
Miller continues to claim he is confident he will win his appeal when the NFL finally hears it, but wouldn’t explain why.
“I’m blessed to be in the situation I’m in, I’m blessed to be with the Denver Broncos, blessed to have great teammates,” Miller said. “I’m just taking it one day at a time.”
The Broncos signed veteran Paris Lenon on Tuesday, perhaps a sign they don’t agree Miller will win his appeal. Lenon has previously spent time with the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Pacers, St. Louis Rams and most recently, the Arizona Cardinals.
Miller has developed into on of the best pass rushers in football, registering 30 sacks in his first two seasons, including 18.5 last season.
