Default Von Miller suspended 4 games

According to Vic Lombardi, a "prominent" defensive player is going to be suspended 4 games for substance abuse. The player is going to appeal.

****. Any guesses?

A prominent Denver defensive player or just a defensive player in general?

I didn't ask my question very well. I was asking if it was a Denver player or if he was just referring to a prominent defensive player in the league. That's been cleared up now though, thanks.

I'm going full pessimist, and I'm going to say it's Von Miller.

After all, hasn't he supposedly packed on even more muscle this offseason, and supposedly not lost any speed?

****.

Hope it's not Von, but with him Hulking up in the off-season, I'm worried.

Could very well be Von with the increased muscle this offseason.

Champ is a stoner, though, right?

Maybe we're lucky and it's just him popping for pot.

Pretty sure he's saying 'substance abuse' not 'performance enhancing'. This almost certainly is someone coming up positive for weed.

This.

Von's gains in muscle would have no correlation to pot.

Heard Lombardi this morning...reading between the lines with "prominent defensive starter", my first thought was Woodyard, possibly Wolfe. Don't think it was Miller or Lombardi would have sounded even more dire and said something like best defensive player or highest impact.

Vic is wording it as substance abuse, not performance enhancing drugs (PED)

If suspension is looming this would be the 3rd pop, assuming the normal protocol was followed:

1st - slap on hand and in abuse program
2nd - Fines but not announced
3rd - 4 game suspension

Well, if it's WW......he can kiss his hopes of getting a new contract before the season goodbye.

Wrong, Vic is impeccable in not giving out more than his sources want. He would not say something like best or any other descriptive moniker. He regularly talks about not breaking his sources trust.
