Mile High Morning: Von Miller shows off physical transformation as training camp approaches


The Lead

Training camp is just over a week away, and, man, does Von Miller look ready.

In a series of photos and videos posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts, Miller looks to have bulked up over the offseason.

That had been the goal, as Miller described in April, but after he contracted the novel coronavirus, his plan was put on hold.

"I was in San Francisco before working on the sand and the stairs," Miller said on April 6. "When the coronavirus started going crazy, we came back. I've got a gym here at the house. It's still not the same as San Francisco, but we're going to be able to hold it off until we can get back to San Francisco."

Miller seems to have been able to do that, and now, these results show his remarkable recovery.

And for all the quarterbacks he'll face this year, we're thinking of you.

As's Gregg Rosenthal wrote, Broncos fans probably don't have much to worry about when it comes to Justin Simmons' long-term plans. Simmons ranked second on his list of tagged players likely to stay put beyond 2020, only behind quarterback Dak Prescott. "Simmons fits coach Vic Fangio's defense like a glove," Rosenthal wrote. "In a Broncos secondary with plenty of question marks, he emerged as one of the best safeties in football. His versatility allows Fangio to get more creative up front, and Elway would be crazy to break up the duo."

9NEWS’ Mike Klis provided a refresher on Drew Lock’s five games from the 2019 season to share some context on his 2020 standing. Of the rookie's performance against Houston, Klis wrote, "Lock just may be the answer. Entering the game as 9-point underdogs against the playoff-bound Texans, Lock torched the Houston defense for 223 yards passing and three touchdown passes while completing 14 of 17 passes for a perfect 158.3 passer rating – in the first half.
