What is Von Miller getting at with one of his latest Instagram posts? Did he hint at something involving Steelers WR Antonio Brown?
Von Miller has never been shy about recruiting for the Denver Broncos. In the 2018 offseason, he was very open about wanting to bring Kirk Cousins to the Mile High City, and although that never came to fruition, you certainly can’t fault him for trying.
Miller may be at it again with the recent reports of the Broncos being among the teams expected to ‘make a run’ at Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown.
Miller posted this on his Instagram story on Tuesday:
For those who don’t know, the slogan ‘Business is Boomin’ is something Antonio Brown has become famous for saying. Miller couples that with the eye emoji and a thought cloud.
Perhaps Miller knows something. Perhaps he knows nothing and this is just wishful thinking.
The Broncos would certainly benefit from having a playmaker like Brown on their roster. Whether they would couple him with Emmanuel Sanders or swap him out on the roster is a mystery and a bridge they won’t cross for a while.
Brown may not be traded until late in the offseason, either. The Steelers would add more than $1 million to their cap this year if he’s traded before June 1 and they could save quite a bit of cap if he’s traded after June 1. Unfortunately for them, he probably has no intentions of being there and they would have to wait for 2020 draft capital to get those cap savings.
Perhaps something could be worked out but this situation is not going to be a seamless one for the Steelers, Brown, or a trading team. It’s probably going to be a lengthy process with a lot of hurdles to clear.
But it’s hard not to get excited about the thought.
