Well, considering in May he talked about wanting to play at "260 or 262", and the fact that he looks significantly bigger in his torso and arms this summer and the fact that 4 games suspensions are usually PED related, I'm going to go out on a limb and say it probably wasn't weed. Hope I'm wrong.

I still don't think it's weed. Schefter is right 4 games out the gate are for PEDs. He was open about gaining weight this offseason. You don't put on 30 pounds in from his recruiting to draft day, then put on 20 or so more on top of it. He may have done it the right way in the past. But that wasn't in 4 months. 260 or so pounds? And no one saw this coming?

Damn Von... the one Bronco I could say would play out his career the right Bronco way. Now we have a potential Lights out in our hands. Hope it was some sort of mistake. But doubt it.

There goes your Probowl/All Pro/ and DPY chances. What a dumbass. Robin loses Batman and he can't handle his ****.

Shaun Phillips is actually one of our best backups, but he's not fit to lick the back of Von Miller's balls in terms of replacing his impact.

Short term this isn't that bad IMO, even without Von for 4 games I'd expect us to steamroll the division. The real worry is that Von's been on PED's all this time, meaning he'll be less effective in the future without them.

I read an article awhile back about how the trend now is that pretty much everyone who gets popped blames it on Adderall. The NFL can't release the specifics of the drug use, so there's no way for them to contradict the claim. It will be interesting to see if this is Von's excuse. At least it's only 4 games. We should be fine with the kind of offense we are going to have.

I so hope it's MJ, then Von can appeal it down to 1 or 2 games. Especially if Hali got 1 game for the exact same thing. That being said, I didn't think Von was a smoker.

So......

Either we have a guy that is busted for PEDs, and may have just delegitimized his play on the field, ala Shawn Merriman.

Or, this is already the THIRD ****ing time he's tested positive for weed ?!?! And he's only been here for 2 years.

So, he's a cheater or a total moron....or both.

Just fantastic.

If it's a recreational drug, like marijuana, 4 games seems excessive. If it is something more serious, then the punishment makes sense.

We do play Oakland and Philly in our first 4 games, so worst case scenario this team should at least be 2-2

It must've been his 3rd minor/basic infraction then, possible the other 2 were never reported.

Hopefully its just meth, and he only snorts it.

So either this is his 3rd marijuana offense, or his first PED offense?

Green last year got four for adderall, right?

Though, if it is indeed recreational, I enjoyed that 20 minutes when many assumed he was taking roids and will never be good again! cut him now!
