Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller had the summer from hell just two years ago.

Man, oh man, how far he’s come.

Miller got some great news on Saturday…

From Mike Klis’ article on 9news:

As Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was dealing with his six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse program two years ago, he said there was nothing he could say to earn trust back from his team and fans, only actions.

His actions have been tangibly rewarded as a league source told 9NEWS that because Miller has not tested positive for the past two years, he is no longer in the league’s drug program.

After getting tested multiple times a week for two years as a player who was in Stage 3 of the NFL’s substance abuse program, Miller’s status has been resent to zero. He has not been drug tested in more than a month. He is not even in stage 1.

Miller, in the last year of his contract, is obviously looking for a massive multi-year extension.

This news paves the way for that to happen; Miller is no longer a risk to be suspended for a year (or even longer) by the league and will now get paid.

Will that be by the Broncos?

It remains to be seen, but this is big, big news for one of the league’s best pass rushers.
