Buffalo Bills Edge Rusher Von Miller Surrenders to Police

One of the NFL's biggest stars is facing some deeply disturbing allegations. According to ESPN's Alaina Getzenberg, edge rusher Von Miller has turned himself in to a Glenn Heights, Texas police department in response to a warrant regarding an alleged assault of a pregnant woman.

News broke earlier today that Miller was being sought for his role in an incident that occurred Wednesday morning in the Dallas Area. Per the affidavit, Miller is accused of shoving, grabbing, and pulling the hair of a woman following a verbal argument. The affidavit also states that the woman claimed to be six weeks pregnant and has been in a relationship with Miller for seven years.

Miller, an eight-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl 50 MVP, was also investigated by Colorado police in 2021, but no charges were ever filed, and no details or potential charges were ever made public.

These are serious accusations Miller is facing, and they could very well end his season if not his career. Depending on how investigations by the police and the NFL proceed, Miller could eventually face a significant suspension, not to mention public scrutiny that could render him toxic for most franchises. At 34 years old, Miller is no longer the prime talent teams twist themselves into knots to justify rostering.

As for the Bills, they could probably begin distancing themselves from Miller now. He has logged a replaceable 8.0 sacks in 19 total appearances since the Bills signed him to a six-year, $120 million deal in 2022. His contract currently makes him difficult to cut outright, but that could change soon. Per Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the Bills would owe Miller $10.71 million in 2024 guaranteed salary if they released him now, but if he faces suspension under the personal conduct policy, those guarantees could be voided.
