Von Miller was suspended for six games this offseason after violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy over the summer. After watching the Broncos seemingly breeze through the first portion of their schedule, it’s scary to think that Denver head coach John Fox will now have his starting linebacker on the field once again. However, that’s the case as Miller returns to action after making his second Pro Bowl in just his sophomore season.
Many forget just how excellent Miller has been since being drafted with the second-overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
This linebacker was named the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 — a campaign he followed up by nearly doubling his rookie total in sacks and forced fumbles. It’s safe to say that Denver is the early-season favorite to not only reach Super Bowl XLVII, but win it as well.
