Von Miller had his parents move in; Broncos babysitting him
Von Miller has proven that he can’t stay out of trouble, so the important people in his life are doing what they can to set him on the straight and narrow.
According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, Miller’s parents moved in with their son soon after the Denver Broncos linebacker was suspended six games for violating the league’s drug policy. In addition to his parents moving in, La Canfora says the Broncos are planning to have a team employee work with Miller and his reps to make sure the linebacker is spending his time well and taking care of what he needs to. La Canfora described this as the Broncos giving Miller a babysitter.
In addition to his suspension, Miller is facing a slew of legal problems.
Miller was arrested in August for failing to appear in court for a traffic violation. He was cited in September for speeding and driving on a suspended license. A day later, it was reported that there was an outstanding warrant for Miller’s arrest in California because he failed to appear in court regarding a speeding ticket.
La Canfora also reported that Miller has a habit of being late or not being in the right place for team meetings. Shocker, right? The Broncos supposedly consider all that to be a product of maturity issues Miller can change.
The report about Miller’s parents moving in seems to jive with Miller’s recent traffic incident. That report stated that Miller’s father was in the car when the sackmaster was cited. He obviously didn’t do a very good job of keeping his son out of trouble on that one.
