Von Miller, a Denver Broncos passenger, is an eight-time Pro Bowler, but he missed the entire 2020 season with a broken ankle that left some wondering if the 32-year-old would still be the same strength.
Miller spoke recently Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News and explained that he isn’t even thinking about definitely wearing his heels.
“I had a son,” Miller said. “He’ll be here in about three or four weeks. I definitely want him to be able to see me play. It will take about five to seven years. That’s what I have in mind, that’s what I have in mind, another five to seven years. Everything what God will give me, I will take. ”
Miller added that his ankle is “about 94%” recovered from the serious injury he sustained earlier in September. “The 6% that I’m going to get, I’m going to make the passenger run in practice with pads pressed against them, pressed against the tips, types pressed against me,” he said. “I haven’t rushed the passer in a year. I haven’t played in a game more than that.”
As for Miller’s expiring affair, he said he plans to “have fun, be with my teammates, stay in the moment” through the next campaign.
“This is the best team we’ve been able to live with in a long time,” he said. “I just want to stay in the moment. I want to be the kind of leader and the kind of player that I know I can be and not focus on external things. I can’t really control that. Just have fun.”
