Denver Broncos all world linebacker Von Miller has already been suspended six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. After serving one game of his suspension, missing Denver’s season-opening 49-24 victory over the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night, reports have surfaced Miller has had another run in with the law. He was stopped for speeding and was subsequently cited for driving with a suspended or revoked license last week.
Now there is speculation as to whether or not NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will add more time to Miller’s suspension.
Clearly, Denver Head Coach John Fox and the Broncos, who appear to be the favorites to win the Super Bowl, aren’t happy.
“Obviously we’re not happy about it,” Fox to ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. “Everybody here has an individual responsibility, not only to themselves, but to this organization, to this football team, so it’s something we’re not pleased about. We’ll leave it at that.”
The Broncos are absolutely loaded on offense, but there will be times when a key third stop is needed and the Broncos need Miller coming off of the edge. The third-year pro has 30 sacks in two seasons, including 18.5 last year.
