Von Miller officially has been suspended six games. Miller broke team rules during the off season for an unknown substance. He released this statement earlier today:
"The Substances of Abuse policy requires everyone to comply with the rules," Miller said in a statement released to the media. "Although my suspension doesn't result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules. I made mistakes and my suspension has hurt my team, Broncos fans, and myself. I am especially sorry for the effect of my bad decisions on others. I will not make the the same mistakes about adhering to the policy in the future. During my time off the field, I will work tirelessly and focus exclusively on remaining in peak shape. I look forward to contributing immediately upon my upon my return to the field and bringing a championship back to the people of Denver."
At a base salary of $2,284,125 in 2013, the loss of six game checks will result in the sacrifice of $806,161.76 in wages.
