BREAKING: Von Miller tried to corrupt drug test with help of collector
ESPN is reporting that Miller, working with a urine collector, attempted to corrupt the drug-testing program. Miller and the unnamed collector attempted to help Miller avoid failing a test, something they obviously failed to do since the Broncos linebacker was caught anyway.
Reports are money wasn't involved, but rather the collector was "star struck" by Miller. The collector works in Miami, where Miller spends time in the offseason. That was enough for the collector to try and switch Miller's urine with clean urine for the test in question.
The ESPN report states that Miller's six game suspension could've gone as high as a full year, and I'm surprised it didn't given his attack on the integrity of the drug testing process, such as it is. I'm also surprised that Miller would try something like this, because no one cares when NFL players test positive for drugs. If this were baseball, the positive test alone would've gotten Miller figuratively tarred and feathered the rest of his career. In the NFL though, it's serve your four game suspension and everyone forgets about it. Did Miller really need the four game checks lost?
It is unknown at this time whether he will receive any more punishment than the six games he's already suspended.
