Von Miller would face a one year suspension if he violates the NFL’s drug policy again

Now that Broncos linebacker Von Miller has already violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy twice,  he’ll face at least a one-year suspension if he ends up breaking the rules again,  according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Reality I've confirmed for #Broncos star Von Miller: He is now in Stage 3 of @NFL's drug policy. Next violation is minimum 1-year suspension...

Broncos: Von Miller suspended six games

The Denver Broncos will be without one of the NFL’s best pass rushers for the first six games of the season.

Report: Von Miller’s Next Violation of Substance Abuse Policy Will Result in Minimum 16-Game Suspension

Von Miller could have been suspended for the entire 2013 season, but he got off easy, accepting a six-game punishment instead. Next time, though, Miller won’t be so fortunate. Since Miller has violated the substance abuse policy twice now — once for a spilled urine sample, once for a diluted sample — a third strike will be a minimum season-long ban, according to Ian Rapoport...

NFL Suspends Broncos LB Von Miller Six Games

Over the past few days there has been a lot of talk about Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and what is going on with him off the field.

Instead of failing a test...

Broncos' Miller finds more trouble

Suspended All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is in trouble with the law for the second time in a month.

Report: Von Miller’s suspension increased after further violating the substance abuse policy during appeals process

What an idiot. Broncos linebacker Von Miller was originally going to be hit with a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.  Then he did something really stupid and violated the policy again during the appeals process with the NFL.  So that bumped the suspension up to six games, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. In that story, I laid out that...

Von Miller fades into the Broncos background

All-Pro linebacker Von Miller donned a scout team skullcap over his helmet Wednesday and spent much of practice helping the Denver Broncos prepare to play more than a third of the season without him. Miller was part spectator, part tutor when he wasn't squaring off against Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady as a member of Denver's scout team in his first practice since the...

2013 NFL Scouting: Can Denver Survive Life Without Von Miller?

Just a few months ago, NFL teams preparing to face the Denver Broncos early in the 2013 season were almost certainly working on blocking schemes to attempt to protect their quarterbacks from the deadly pass-rushing duo that was Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. Fast forward to the present however, and things don't look quite so daunting for those opposing offenses. Thanks...
