Rams’ Aaron Donald to attend Von Miller’s virtual summit

Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller is set to host a virtual “summit” with other pass rushers in the NFL. Miller, 31, an eight-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion, has invited players like Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Cleveland Browns’ Myles Garrett, Arizona Cardinals’ Chandler Jones, San Francisco 49ers’ Arik Armstead, Chicago Bears’ Khalil Mack, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Shaquil Barrett, Kansas City Chiefs’ Frank Clark, and Bosa brothers Chargers’ Joey and 49ers’ Nick.

Miller shared the lineup on his social media page.

Miller, the MVP of Super Bowl 50, tested positive for COVID-19 back in April. The coronavirus pandemic may have hit the NFL world the least hard among sports leagues, but football has suffered from its consequences, like canceling offseason workouts and minicamps, forcing players to go underground and until recently emerge in various unofficial training camps, such as new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady’s covert operation that violated NFLPA instructions for health and safety.

Miller was cleared of coronavirus last month, however, and the NFL is slowly resuming activities despite the sport that clearly requires contact activities in a public health environment stressing to limit contact.

Miller’s virtual pass-rush summit plans to be held Thursday, June 25, at 6-8 pm ET.

A nine-year veteran, Miller last season recorded eight sacks and 46 combined tackles in 15 games. Donald, meanwhile, may have the best argument as the current best pass rusher. A two-time Defensive Player of the Year winner, Donald has been a Pro Bowl selection in all six years of his professional football tenure with the Rams, leading the league in sacks in 2018 with 20.5.
