This weekend the NFL enshrined some players into the Hall of Fame. The spotlight on the Hall of Fame has others thinking about it in regards to their career, and that includes Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
“If I’m not the greatest, I’m headed that way,” Miller said, via the Denver Post. “I definitely think I’m headed in that direction.”
Miller had a rocky 2013, serving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy and then having his season prematurely ended by a serious injury.
Miller was selected second in the 2011 NFL Draft, one that has proven to be very deep and filled with talent. Miller isnt comparing himself to the other players in the draft, like JJ Watt, Cam Newton, Richard Sherman, AJ Green and Julio Jones. Instead he is focused on himself and improving, while eyeing a long career.
“Every year is different for a football player. Being consistent over the years is where the weight is going to be carried in measuring a player. I had an all right first two seasons, but I fell off my third season,” Miller said.
“But it’s a long race. I’m hoping for it to be a 17- or 20-year race. And we’ll see where everybody ends up.”
