In today’s episode of ‘Von Miller does the darnest things’…
The not-so-shocking bombshell comes from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. The suspended Broncos linebacker unsuccessfully tried to corrupt the NFL ‘s drug program with the help of the urine collector.
The report goes on to state:
This helps explain why Miller’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’ssubstance abuse policy suddenly and mysteriously was increased to six games and easily could have been up to a year, the sources said.
Sources said the collector worked in Miami, where Miller spends offseason time, and the collector reveled in knowing the Broncos linebacker while being, according to a source, “star struck.” It led, sources said, to the collector’s willingness to substitute another person’s urine specimen for Miller. It might have worked, sources said, had a second collector not discovered that Miller was not in the city where his collection was supposed to have taken place.
“He’s fast,” one source said of Miller, “but he’s not that fast.”
Another source said after the NFL learned details in the Miller case, it summoned representatives of the testing company, Drug Free Sport, to New York in late August to meet with league officials to review collection procedures that could enhance the process in the NFL/NFLPA joint testing program. Repeated calls to Drug Free Sports this weekend went unanswered.
The collector involved has been dismissed, per a source.
It has been stated that the collector was trying to go so far as to substitute Miller’s urine with that of someone else’s.
Not surprised that Miller was unsuccessful in his attempt to cover up his wrongdoings. This certainly helps justify the suspension.
