Von Miller returns to the AFC
With a Super Bowl ring in both AFC and NFC, Von Miller agrees terms with the Buffalo Bills and wants to bring his magic touch back to the AFC
The Buffalo Bills have confirmed that they have indeed come to terms with the phenomenal 32-year old defensive end Von Miller on a six-year, $120 million deal. This makes 2-time Super Bowl champ Miller the first defensive player to sign a $100 million-plus contract with two teams. The deal is reportedly back-loaded so his contract will average $17.5 million per season over the first four years.
As reported in AS USA’s live NFL free agency feed, Miller has surprised virtually everyone by electing to not return to the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, and moves instead to a Bills team that has been on the cusp of AFC victory for three seasons.
The Bills need to generate pressure from the front four if they want to push to the next level and Miller is just the man for the job. Most insiders were of the opinion that if Miller didn’t stay with LA, he would likely return to Denver. This bold move by Buffalo has taken us all by surprise.
The Bills weren't done with that trade at all though. Buffalo also snapped up tight end O.J. Howard from Tampa Bay, lending perhaps more credence to the rumors that Brady will be dealt to the 49ers.
