NFL Network kicked off their annual rankings of the Top 100 players in the NFL on Sunday night and it didn’t take long for the Buffalo Bills to have a player appear on the list. In fact, it is a player who has yet to take a snap for the Bills but Von Miller should have a major impact on this defense.
At number 93 on the NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2022 was defensive end Von Miller.
Von Miller has had an impressive career since entering the league in 2022 as the second overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He would spend 10.5 seasons with the Denver Broncos and during that stretch amass 110.5 sacks and earn numerous accolades that included eight Pro Bowl nominations, six times either first-team or second-team All-Pro, Defensive Rookie of the Year, and runner-up Defensive Player of the Year twice.
He would also help the Broncos win the Super Bowl in 2015 and be named Super Bowl MVP for his performance.
This past season, Miller saw his time with the Broncos come to an end as he was traded to the Los Angeles Rams. While he may not be at the level he was earlier in his career, he showed he can still make an impact and helped the Rams to win the Super Bowl.
Buffalo Bills hope Von Miller can have the same impact with this team
The way that Von Miller helped the Los Angeles Rams during their Super Bowl run was likely a big reason that the Buffalo Bills were so aggressive in trying to add Miller, and were able to do so with a six-year contract.
The Bills believe they have a team capable of winning a Super Bowl but could use a little help on defense guiding some of their younger defensive lineman like Greg Rousseau and Ed Oliver. He appears to already have made quite the impact on these players during training camp and could be in line for a big season in Western New York.
