  • Von Miller pulling for Aldon Smith,wants to play with him one day

    Broncos linebacker Von Miller would need one of the biggest individual sack days on record Sunday to wind up setting a new single-season record for sacks in a season, but he knows who he wants to break the record if he can’t do it.

    Miller told Lindsey Jones of USA Today that he’ll have more chances to break the record and that he’s “hoping” 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith can get there this season by “finishing stronger” than he did last year. He’s not rooting against Texans defensive end J.J. Watt — Miller wore a bracelet supporting Watt’s charitable efforts last year — but he’s definitely pulling for Smith, a player he’d like to call a teammate at some point down the road.

    “Me, Marcell Dareus and Aldon Smith, we talked about doing the whole LeBron, Wade and Bosh thing,” Miller said in reference to the Miami Heat trio that joined forces two years ago and won last season’s NBA championship. “We talked about doing that somewhere down the line.”

    NFL quarterbacks have likely thought of more comforting things than Miller and Smith coming at them from opposite ends of the line, so they’ll be reassured to learn that any team-up is unlikely to happen in the immediate future. Any of those quarterbacks that find themselves on Denver’s schedule will be less reassured to hear other goals that Miller set for himself when he was coming into the league as part of the impressive 2011 defensive draft class.

    “I didn’t want to just be the best linebacker on the board. I wanted the best defensive player,” Miller said. “I might not have looked like a traditional outside linebacker or a traditional defensive end, but I wanted teams to see me as the best defensive player out there.”

    That wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize for not setting the sacks record and it’s certainly a goal Miller can reach if he keeps playing at the same level we’ve seen in his first two seasons.

          That'd be sweet if its with the Broncos and he could help lure those guys here but with the huge salaries and franchise tags that's most likely not gonna happen but he's already playing along side one of the best pass rushers in the league in Elvis Dumervil.

              The chances of this actually happening are slim to none. The NFL isn't anything like the NBA. (Thank god! I despise the NBA )

                    I don't think Aldon Smith and Von will ever be on the same team, but I can definitely see Dareus wanting out of Buffalol

                      I guess he won't be a Bronco for life? Sounds like he will leave for something better someday?

                        i doubt this will ever happen, just some fun dreams from guys that came into the league together.

                        if it did i hope they end up here

                              I was thinking the same thing!

                              Also, Rush LB Aldon Smith would not fit in DEN.

                              At 6'4 265, where would he play?

                              The only place I could see A. Smith playing at
                              is E. Dumervil's spot.

                              Is that really an upgrade?
