The Denver Broncos haven’t lost a step with their defense this year, despite losing their All-Pro linebacker to a six-game suspension before the season started. Von Miller entered 2013 regarded as one of the league’s top pass-rushers, and entering just his third year in the league, expectations were at an all-time high for him and his Broncos, who looked poised to make a deep playoff-run that ends with them holding the Lombardi Trophy.

But alas, a suspension for failing the league’s drug policy cost him the first six games of this season, and now we know why:

Via ESPN’s Chris Mortenson & Adam Schefter:

Von Miller unsuccessfully attempted to corrupt the NFL’s drug testing program with the help of a “star-struck” urine collector before each was caught, according to sources.
This helps explain why Miller’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy suddenly and mysteriously was increased to six games and easily could have been up to a year, the sources said.

One source was “reasonably certain” no money changed hands between Miller and the collector, but that there was concern the NFL may have a problem beyond Miller and the collector involved. The NFL and the NFLPA declined comment.
