Denver Broncos’ linebacker Von Miller is putting up big time stats with his 16 sacks, 6 forced fumbles, and 24 tackles for a loss this season alone. Unfortunately, because of his aggressive style of play, he’s also racking up big-time fines.

The NFL informed Miller on Friday that he would be fined $25,000 for a hit on Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman below the knees. The Broncos were given a 15-yard penalty for the play.

This is the third fine that Miller has incurred this season. He was fined $21,000 in November for a hit on Cam Newton, and $15,750 for a hit on Matt Schaub in September.

In his rookie year, Miller was fined $15,000 for a hit on Carson Palmer, $25,000 for a hit on Mark Sanchez, and $7,500 for a hit against the Patriots last January.

With six fines in his less than 2-year career, Miller could be subject to suspensions for future infractions.
