Von Miller reveals shocking reason for Bills move, why he ‘wasn’t content’ with Aaron Donald, Rams
The Buffalo Bills will enter their 2022 season with as much hype and expectation as any since Jim Kelly and the K-Gun offense in the early 1990’s. On paper, the Bills were the best team in football last year. Ultimately, they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime in the divisional round.
That prompted Buffalo to go out and sign future Hall of Fame defensive end Von Miller. Many people believed Miller might run it back with Los Angeles, who has also had an outstanding offseason.
On Tuesday, the newest Buffalo Bills edge rusher addressed the media and revealed why he chose Buffalo.
Von Miller: "I could have just stayed in LA and just rode off into the sunset and just rushed with Aaron Donald and piled up sacks but I wasn't content…this is a special team, they're right on the edge and I just wanted to be that last drop to overflow these guys." pic.twitter.com/4qrAiODT7C

“I could have just stayed in LA and just rode off into the sunset and just rushed with Aaron Donald and piled up sacks but I wasn’t content…this is a special team, they’re right on the edge and I just wanted to be that last drop to overflow these guys.,” Miller said.
That comment seems to signify that he wants to be the difference maker on a team. It would be hard to accomplish that goal with Aaron Donald and all of the stars on the Rams. If he’s able to put the Bills over the top, it would be his third Super Bowl ring. He previously won Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos and was named Super Bowl MVP. He went on to say that he also wants to become the first player in NFL history to win a Super Bowl with three different teams.
Miller spent just one season with the Rams, but revitalized his career. He might have only posted 4.5 sacks during the regular season, but in the playoffs, he was like a man possessed. Logically, the $120 million contract also had something to do with the decision.
