Von Miller couldn’t simply hold back his excitement and joy, ever since he landed in Los Angeles as the Rams dart forward towards the playoffs. They are comfortably stationed in the second place of NFC West just behind the remarkable Cardinals.
Miller said in his first press conference for the Rams, “I’m excited to be a part of this team. Coach [Sean] McVay, he’s just so energetic and he’s a great coach. It feels like a movie. It really does. It feels like a movie and I’m excited to be in it.“
This is what Von Miller had to say about his trade to Los Angeles Rams
Von Miller became the latest addition to an already bedecked Rams roster that features the likes of quarterback Matthew Stafford, cornerback Jalen Ramsey, defensive lineman Aaron Donald and wide receiver, Cooper Kupp.
It was a bizarre sequence of events that Miller had to go through before he was finally intimated of the trade by Broncos general manager, Geroge Paton. It was an emotional goodbye for Miller while an inspirational welcome at Los Angeles.
Miller quoted, “It’s different. It feels like a movie. From coming into work on Monday and I was in a training room, and they said that George wanted to talk to me. I’ve been in the league 11 years, so I already knew what this talk was going to be about.”
He continued by saying, “Initially, it hurt. I’ve been saying it kind of felt like removing a splinter. At first, it hurts, it hurts bad. I’ve been there for 11 years. I don’t know anything else. I was a Denver Bronco. They told me that I was getting traded to the Rams. Hurts. Had all my goodbyes. Looking at my house, looking at all the memories that I had there throughout 11 years, it was tough. When I took off Tuesday morning, though, I had a nice view of the mountains and I told myself like, ‘Hey, taking off a Denver Bronco. When I land, I’m a Los Angeles Ram.’ I landed and they had a camera crew out there, it was a warm welcome. Went straight to get the physical. Came here to the facility, started meeting players and it started to feel good. It’s starting to feel real good.”
He concluded by saying, “You look at all the talent that we have. I went to sleep 4-4 and woke up 7-1. In the back end of things, it’s not really that bad. It’s better for me. It’s better for the organization. And you just got to let reality sink in that I get to play with Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey and Leonard Floyd and Matthew Stafford and his solid offensive line. And they got a solid team. The Denver Broncos are still building. They’re still a family and stuff, but this team was ready to win it right now, ready to win championships right now. And I’m excited to be a part of it.”
It felt that Paton is hellbent on a revamp while Von Miller seems to be out of the equation for a resurgent Broncos. The Broncos are currently stationed with 4 wins and 4 losses in the tournament so far. Their coach, George Paton has a few plans that would need some radical changes to be implemented and most likely Von Miller was the first step.
