The Von Miller trade sent shockwaves across the NFL after the Broncos sent the eight time Pro Bowler and three-time All Pro linebacker to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for 2022 second and third round draft picks.
Soon after the trade, reporters got his reaction to it in real time, and he was still very clearly emotional about it:
“It’s still kind of hard to put into words. It’s still kind of raw, but thank you, thank everybody, and off to L.A.,” Miller said.
“It’s still hard — you can’t really put it into words,” Miller said. “Somebody told me once you want to make God laugh, then make plans. You’ve just got to keep going, keep taking it one day at a time. I’ve got a beautiful baby boy, had a lot of beautiful years here, lot of great memories, lot of great teammates, lot of great coaches, lot of great fans.”
In Los Angeles, Miller will join a 7-1 Rams team that is among the favorites to make a Super Bowl LVI run.
“Great team — I’ve been a huge fan of Aaron Donald for a long time. They got a great defense … I’m excited, always been a great teammate and I’m going to continue to do that,” Miller said, adding that he hopes to play on Sunday night when the Rams host the Tennessee Titans.
