The Broncos’ offseason keeps getting worse and worse.
The Denver Broncos have had a bumpy offseason thus far. It started with the Elvis Dumervil fax issue, and was followed by DUI arrests to two personnel executives, which resulted in suspensions.
Now, defensive standout OLB Von Miller was suspended for four games. Adam Schefter broke the news.
Broncos LB Von Miller is facing 4-game suspension for violating NFL policy, per ESPN sources. Case currently in appeals process.

George Atallah, NFLPA assistant director of external affairs, tweeted that this was not involved with the Steroid and Related Substances Policy.
I can also confirm that Von’s case does not involve the Steroids and Related Substances Policy.

His appeal is crucial to Denver’s early success. Without Dumervil, their pass rushing unit has taken a major hit. Without Miller, their pass rushing unit is basically depleted.
Their first four opponents are the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, and Philadelphia Eagles.
