Von Miller: Where is going, Was traded, Why Did denver trade?
Where is going:
Miller, who’s in the final year of his contract, was sidelined all of last year with a dislocated ankle tendon. He had a splashy comeback, winning the AFC Defensive Player of the Month honor in September.
On Monday, the Rams acquired eight-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Von Miller from the Denver Broncos in exchange for second- and third-round picks in the 2022 draft.
The Broncos will pay $9 million of the $9.7 million Miller is owed for the remainder of the season, after which the 32-year-old pass-rusher will become an unrestricted free agent.
Miller’s addition marks the latest move in the Rams’ continuing quest to remain playoff contenders now, while seemingly concerning themselves about future seasons later.
Why did denver trade ?:
The Denver Broncos agreed to trade eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday.
An emotional Miller, sitting in the back seat of an SUV as he left the Broncos’ facility Monday, told reporters that he was surprised by the trade.
“It’s still kind of hard to put into words. It’s still kind of raw, but thank you, thank everybody, and off to L.A.,” Miller said.
