But that’s how his fate unfolded when the Denver Broncos traded him for a second and a third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Perhaps there are no qualms on his end anymore because he won Super Bowl LVI, six years after winning Super Bowl MVP.
For all the glory, Miller earned only $722,233 during his stint with the Rams.
That’s not a problem because he already had a six-year, $114.1 million deal from the Broncos in 2016.
However, Miller is set to become a free agent by March 16, giving him the freedom to negotiate with all NFL teams.
Therefore, there’s a chance that he might not be back in Los Angeles if the Rams wished to part ways.
If that happens, maybe Miller will keep an eye on history for his next destination, as CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson suggests.
Did you know no NFL player has ever played in a Super Bowl win for 3 different teams.
That's something that Von Miller–a big student of the game & the legacy leaders at his position–can set out to accomplish if* he wants.

Anderson tweeted, “Did you know no NFL player has ever played in a Super Bowl win for 3 different teams. That’s something that Von Miller — a big student of the game & the legacy leaders at his position — can set out to accomplish if* he wants. Miller has already done it with the #Rams & #Broncos.”
The asterisk after “if” is the biggest catch of all because Miller might be content staying with the Rams.
If he re-signs in Los Angeles, the Rams will have a chance to become the first NFC team in nearly three decades to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
Getting Everyone Back
However, Miller isn’t the only one that the Rams must bring back in order to have a strong shot at Super Bowl LVII.
Likewise, resigning Odell Beckham Jr. is a must for general manager Les Snead, even if he will spend majority of the 2022 season rehabilitating his torn ACL.
