After spending the first nine seasons of his career with the Denver Broncos, Von Miller joined his third different team in the past couple of months when he signed with the Buffalo Bills in free agency. Miller started the 2021 season with Denver, but ended up getting traded to the Los Angeles Rams. He won a Super Bowl in L.A., and then departed for Buffalo in free agency.
Despite winning a Super Bowl and signing a mammoth deal with the Bills, Miller still thinks about his tenure with the Broncos. Miller recently said that it’s “bittersweet” to watch an up-and-coming Broncos team be poised for success without him:
“This team is going to be great. It’s bittersweet that I won’t be here to be a part of it, because I’ve still got orange and blue in my heart and it will stay that way forever. We’ve been close in the AFC West for a very long time, and now we’ve got Russell Wilson, Jerry Jeudy’s going to be insane this year, Courtland Sutton’s going to be insane this year. I want those guys to win as many games as possible.” – Von Miller via The Denver Post
Miller clearly thinks the Broncos could win the AFC West in 2022, and he has some good reasons. They addressed their quarterback woes with a huge trade for Wilson, which could end up being just what this team needs. They already have some weapons for him on offense, and a sneaky good defense as well.
Miller will be working to win the AFC East with the Bills, but it’s clear that Denver has Miller’s support. And while it may be tough for him to not be a part of their success, winning his second straight Super Bowl with Buffalo would probably make up for that.
