Von Miller says goodbye to Denver Broncos fans after being traded to the Los Angeles Rams.
Von Miller had spent his entire NFL career with the Denver Broncos prior to being traded to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday.
During his 11 years in Denver, Miller made eight trips to the Pro Bowl, three First-Team All-Pro squads, won Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 and was Super Bowl 50 MVP in 2015. With the Broncos likely heading towards another season with a playoff absence, the organization made the tough decision to trade away its most accomplished player on the entire football roster in Miller.
Here is Miller saying a final few thoughts as he left the Broncos’ team facility to go join the Rams.
Von Miller to the Rams: Broncos legend gets emotional saying goodbye to fans
Naturally, Miller was very emotional about getting dealt. He has spent his entire professional career with the team that drafted him No. 2 overall out of Texas A&M back in 2011. While he knew he was potentially on the move, he said Broncos Country and him will always share a special bond over Super Bowl 50. Upon joining the Rams, Miller could hoist the Lombardi Trophy a second time.
Unlike Denver, Los Angeles is expected to make the playoffs. While the Rams are in a tight division battle with the Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles should be a top-seven team in the NFC this year. After trading for Matthew Stafford this offseason, the Rams are all-in on getting back to the Super Bowl. Though they have a stacked roster, they have yet to win one while calling Los Angeles home.
Miller leaves an impactful legacy on the defensive side of the ball in the Mile High City.
