The Denver Broncos have had a tough couple of seasons, struggling at the QB spot and not being able to take advantage of their strong defense.
One player who has spoken out about playing for the next five to seven years is linebacker Von Miller.
Miller has been a special player since he was drafted in 2011. He was even the Super Bowl MVP when he beat up Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50.
The Broncos will have some interesting games to start the 2021 season, beginning with a game against the New York Giants in MetLife Stadium on September 12th.
The next week, the team will travel to Florida to play new coach Urban Meyer and the Jacksonville Jaguars. They open up their home slate on September 26th when they play host to the New York Jets.
Right now, Miller is the longest tenured Denver Bronco and the only non-special teams player remaining from the Super Bowl 50 Roster.
During practice on September 8th, 2020, Miller suffered what was called a “freak injury near the ankle,” and some feared that season-ending surgery was required. An MRI the next day revealed that the injury was a dislocated peroneal tendon, and Miller was subsequently placed on injured reserve
Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater get all their attention, and all eyes tend to be on the QBs as they look to take an early lead in the quarterback race. However, Von Miller will just continue demonstrating quiet leadership while he gears up for yet another season in a Broncos uniform.
