Was Von Miller really upset about teammates not coming to his Halloween party?
That is what an insane and unfounded rumor is suggesting that the legendary Broncos star linebacker was threatening to disrupt the locker room chemistry of the team over this particular party.
Check out what Per Pro Football Network wrote about it:
“A source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFN that Miller became upset when teammates declined to kick in for his annual Halloween party. It’s a massive affair with a six-figure price tag. This year, it featured Quavo from the hip-hop act Migos.
Miller’s request for financial help came as a surprise to his teammates. They had assumed they were invited guests to the party, not co-hosts. Miller even wanted rookies to contribute several thousand dollars for an event that they had no role in planning.
Miller, who has earned over $90 million in his career, threatened to disrupt the Broncos’ locker room chemistry over what in his mind was an unpaid debt, the source tells PFN. We’re also told coach Vic Fangio and general manager George Paton became aware of the rift. That may have factored into the team’s decision to move on from the eight-time Pro Bowler despite the Broncos sitting just a half-game out of the AFC’s seventh seed.”
Just a few pictures from the party:
Remember, take this rumor with a grain of salt.
On Monday, the Broncos agreed to trade Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams will send to the Broncos a second-round pick and third-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft in exchange for Miller.
The Broncos will also pay $9 million of Miller’s remaining $9.7 million base salary for the remaining nine games in the regular season.
An emotional Miller sat in the backseat of his SUV as he reacted to the news.
“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.”
Miller will join a 7-1 Rams team that is among the favorites to make a Super Bowl LVI run.
