RUMOR: Broncos have no plans to trade Von Miller
The Denver Broncos may have just unloaded wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and could be in the process of also trading cornerback Chris Harris, but it looks like pass rusher Von Miller will be staying put.
According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the Broncos have no plans of trading Miller ahead of the 4 p.m. ET NFL trade deadline on Tuesday.
Miller has had a disappointing season thus far, as he has logged just 26 tackles and four sacks through eight games. He has picked things up a bit over the last few weeks, as he failed to register a sack in any of his first three games.
The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Texas A&M, was originally selected by Denver with the second overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft.
He made an immediate impact during his rookie campaign, recording 64 tackles, 11.5 sacks and three forced fumbles, making the Pro Bowl as a result. He followed that up with an even better season in 2012, racking up 68 tackles, 18.5 sacks, an interception, six forced fumbles and a defensive touchdown, earning another Pro Bowl selection and First-Team All-Pro honors.
A PED-related suspension then limited Miller to just nine games in 2013, marking his first year without a Pro Bowl appearance.
Thus far, it was also his only year without one.
Since then, the DeSoto, Tx. native has made five straight trips to the Pro Bowl, including a pair of First-Team All-Pro selections in 2015 and 2016, the former of which also included a Super Bowl title.
Outside of 2013, Miller has logged double-digit sack totals in every season.
