Broncos Pick Up Miller's Fifth-Year Option

Posted May 1, 2014

The Broncos have picked up the fifth-year option on Von Miller, keeping him in Denver through 2015.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos have picked up the fifth-year option for linebacker Von Miller, keeping the Pro Bowler in Denver through the 2015 season.

Miller, rehabbing from an ACL injury that ended his 2013 campaign last December, is the first player in Broncos history to earn a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first two NFL seasons.

The former Defensive Rookie of the Year and Broncos' single-season sack leader said last month that he is "being patient" with his recovery.

"You want to just wake up and push through it, but it's not one of those things," Miller said. "You've just got to be patient and grind and let your body heal. Everybody's body is different. It just depends on how your body is reacting to the rehab. It's just something that you can't rush. You've got to take your time with it."

Miller said his recovery has gone well so far. He has been running for the past two weeks and has constantly been focusing on the muscles around his injured knee -- "the thighs, quads, abs -- all the muscles that stabalize your body."

While he doesn't want to set a strict timetable, he said his recovery is currently ahead of schedule. And though he won't force anything, his goal is to play in every game -- starting with Week 1.

And he's anxious to get on the field with the Broncos' newest pass-rusher, defensive end DeMarcus Ware.

"It's a true blessing. I think it will be great. He's been a leader, he's been consistent for the last nine, 10 years he's been in the league, and I think that he still has a ton of football left," Miller said. "I'm looking forward to his leadership in the locker room, I'm looking forward to him just being healthy and him not just having to do everything on defense, because the Broncos have done a great job of getting big-time players in this year and I'm anxious to get back on the field and play with those guys."
