Von Miller Reveals What His Contribution to LA Rams Will Be: ‘I Want to Be the Guy Who Helped Aaron Donald Get a Super Bowl’

While talking about the unusual support for himself from Broncos fans despite leaving, he states, “To still have the support from the city is amazing…I got traded. If it was up to me, I’d still be in Denver trying to figure it out. That’s just how I am, that’s how I’m built. It feels good for the city to understand that and for them to know that this wasn’t my choice.

Despite moving to LA and playing for the Rams, it is surprising how openly Miller talks about everything. The open love letter to the Colorado faithful really might be annoying for some Rams faithful who would want his head in LA. But Miller comes across during his interview as someone professionally committed to the Rams and nothing more.

It might not make the Rams OLB a popular figure with the LA faithful, but they won’t possibly mind it until it affects his performances on the field. But the Miller situation brings to light the harsh reality of life in the NFL and how franchises need to make tough decisions for future success. The love story seems to be more of a love affair with the Broncos, with the Rams becoming the third wheel.
