Von Miller is one of the greatest players of our generation. The edge rusher out of Texas A&M was the 2nd overall pick for the Denver Broncos in 2011 and was an immediate star.

He’s simply been dominant. Miller has been long considered one of the league’s best players overall, and one of its model citizens.

In his illustrious career, he has been named a seven-time all-pro at one of the most selective positions to win it. He also has a tremendous 123.5 sacks and over 500 tackles. Miller won a Super Bowl with the Broncos, and will surely go in their ring of honor.

The pass rusher moved on to the Bills after the 2021 season to chase another ring with a great roster in Buffalo. And, it went well for a while, as he had 8 sacks in 11 games before suffering a torn ACL. At this stage, that’s a big injury for a soon-to-be 34-year-old.

But, Miller has his eyes set on something else, and that’s being an NFL GM.

Here are some more details, courtesy of Pro Football Talk.

Bills linebacker Von Miller , the MVP of Super Bowl 50, has arrived in Indianapolis for the Scouting Combine with the goal of eventually becoming a General Manager.

“This is what I want to do ,’’ Miller told Mike Klis of 9News.com. “I wanted to do this one time before in college when I took my poultry science class and I sat in that class and said If I don’t make it in the NFL and it doesn’t work out, this is what I want to do. . . . So this is my second time really feeling like that. It’s what I want to do.”

So what he’s doing is showing up in Indy with the goal of learning the craft of finding NFL players. He realizes he has a long way to go.

“I don’t have any experience,” Miller said. “I know what a great football team looks like. I know what a winning football team looks like. A great staff, great equipment guys, great athletic trainers. I know what that looks like, I know what it takes to build those teams but that’s it.

“So I’m here to meet with guys, for the guys to give me instructions on what to do with my right foot next and what to do with my left foot next. And make the first steps to making this happen.”

Miller told Klis he’ll meet with “whoever will meet with me.” The challenge for Miller will be getting General Managers and others who work for teams other than the Bills to agree to talk to him, since he’s under contract with Buffalo. Indeed, we know of at least one General Manager who has declined to meet with Miller for fear of tampering charges.

I think it’s awesome that Von Miller wants to be a GM. I think it would be good for the league to have more former players and fewer nerds as general managers.
