Von Miller named 2018 Second-Team All-Pro at two positions

Following his first season with more than 14 sacks since 2012, Von Miller has been named a Second-Team All-Pro at both the edge rusher and linebacker positions.

He now has four Second-Team All-Pro selections (2011, 2014, 2017-18) and three First-Team selections (2012, 2015-16). Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Bears linebacker Khalil Mack were named First-Team All-Pro edge rushers ahead of Miller.

Miller racked up 14.5 sacks in 2018, the second-best total of his career, and had four forced fumbles, 48 total tackles and one interception.

The 2018 season also brought Miller a new franchise record, as he became the Broncos' all-time sack leader after he brought down Baker Mayfield in Week 15 for his 98th career sack. Miller's path to breaking that record this season was paved by his consistency, marked most notably by his nine-game stretch with at least a half-sack. He also had four multi-sack games this season, including a three-sack, two-forced-fumble effort to open the season against Seattle.

Yet, Miller said Monday that he felt that his season didn't live up to his own expectations.

"I hate feeling like I could’ve done more, but that’s definitely the truth," Miller said. "... I could’ve done more and that’s definitely what I feel like. I could’ve always done more and it’s a good thing because I’ve got another shot at it next year to do more — not only on the football field but in the locker room and as a leader."

Later that day, President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway agreed with that sentiment, and also said he hoped the Broncos' next head coach can help Miller find a new gear.

"Von, he had a good year this year," Elway said. "Can Von play better? Yeah, I think Von can play better. That’s part of the new thing when that comes in with the next coach."
