Earlier in the offseason, fans gave second-year linebacker Von Miller an 8.5 swag rating for his unique fashion statements.  During training camp, he’s lived up to that high rating.

Over the past two days, Miller has sported lime green and neon orange socks, respectively.

Miller is obviously just having some fun by making a fashion statement — and in camp that’s fine.  But if he tried to pull it off during the regular season, he’d be hit with a minimum $5,000 fine from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

In 2005, former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis and late safety Sean Taylor were fined a combined $25,000 for uniform violations — for wearing socks and cleats that did not match the team’s official apparel.  Taylor was wearing these stripped socks.  Because they are official team apparel, the league can’t smack the Broncos for wearing similar stripped socks that make an even bolder fashion statement.

Miller has always been fashion-savvy, and was endorsed by Five Four—a personal fashion stylist company—following his rookie season.  You can view a photo gallery of Miller in Five Four apparel right here.

After a Defensive Rookie of the Year season, Miller can wear whatever he wants as long as he gets to the quarterback.  Gig ‘em, Von.
