Bills’ Von Miller says he wants to be as long-lived in the NFL as Tom Brady

Sports Writing, Jul 4 (EFE) .- Two-time Super Bowl champion Von Miller, 33, said Monday that he wants to be as long-lived in the NFL as Tom Brady, considered the best player in the league, who At the age of 44, he will play his 23rd season.

“I try to play everything. Tom Brady did it, I admire him in terms of the longevity of his career, although I go one day at a time and I’m only going to take the time that God gives me to achieve it,” explained Miller who in March signed to play with buffalo bills.

The champion linebacker with the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 and with the Los Angeles Rams in LVI last February has a contract with the Bills for the next six years in exchange for 120 million dollars.

If he fulfills the commitment that binds him to coach Sean McDermott’s team, Miller would be 39 years old and have played 16 seasons in 2027, still far from the 23 that Brady will reach, although in a position with much more physical contact.

The eight-time Pro Bowler described himself as passionate about football, a sport in which he will seek to remain as long as possible.

“I’m 33 years old, but I honestly don’t feel like I’m 33. My intention is to play the six years of my contract in Buffalo. I’m really sick of the game when you get to know me,” he argued.

The DeSoto, Texas native is the NFL’s active leader in sacks at quarterback with 115.5; he looks for the league mark of 200 belonging to legendary Bills star Bruce Smith, who played 19 seasons.

Miller has played 10 seasons, missing 2020 with a dislocated peroneal tendon. In 2021 he had 9.5 sacks, including two in Super Bowl LVI as the Los Angeles Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.

The linebacker stressed the importance of mental toughness to stay at your best in this game.

“I think once you start feeling old there’s no going back. I’ve been in the league a long time and when guys start complaining about injuries and stuff, I’m like, man, sure it’s cold on the field. I try to keep my mind positive.

Von Miller mentioned that he will seek to take advantage of all that experience to infect his teammates in the Bills.

“The main thing is that I don’t look 33 at all. When I’m on the field I make it a point to show the guys what I’m made of and gain their trust; yes, I’m 33, but I can run with you, I can run with anyone; I’m healthy. And I take care of my body.
