Default A clean Von Miller dismissed from NFL's drug program

"As Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller was dealing with his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse program two years ago, he said there was nothing he could say to earn trust back from his team and fans, only actions.

His actions have been tangibly rewarded as a league source told 9NEWS that because Miller has not tested positive for the past two years, he is no longer in the league's drug program.

After getting tested multiple times a week for two years as a player who was in Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse program, Miller's status has been resent to zero. He has not been drug tested in more than a month. He is not even in stage 1.

The development could not have come at a better time for Miller as he is in the final year of his contract. That means when his agent Joby Branion entertains negotiations for Miller's next contract, the linebacker would be considered no more risk of a drug suspension than the league's teetotalers.

Miller can also thank the NFL's revised drug policy that was collectively renegotiated by owners and players back in September, 2014. Previously, a player in Stage 3 of the program remained there for the duration of his career and a subsequent violation would result in a minimum suspension of a full season.

Now, Miller's drug status resets to zero. Should there be another violation, he would re-enter Stage 1 of the league's drug program, where he would be tested more often, but he would not be suspended. It would take a second violation for Miller to reach Stage 2 and a likely four-game suspension...

Wow, I did not know their drug suspensions would disappear. Good for Von I remember when this happened a lot of us were writing him off. Good for him.

Lock him up on a long term deal now Elway. This is goodell's best move as commissioner imo too

Time for him to light one up too for old times sake.

Hopefully we'll hear the same thing about Shane Ray soon. Apparently if doesn't have a positive drug test for 3 months, he'll be released from the drug program as well.

He'll will likely wait until after the season like Justin Houston did. Why take a deal when you know you can get more?

Alright Von, now I know most will think ill of me for being a proponent of this, however I must state this.
Von Miller, your only focus this season should be to rape every QB you line up across the field from.

Only thing with that is the injury risk since he's had one ACL surgery already. 2 could lower that number.
