If Von Miller ever wondered about how intense Peyton Manning was about doing things the right way as a player, he only has to refer back to 2013 for reminder.
During an interesting Sports Illustrated feature on the Broncos star, Greg Bishop detailed a story of a pissed Peyton Manning suggesting Von Miller to be sent home for missing curfew.
Before he became the Super Bowl MVP, Miller went through a phase where he was busted for marijuana use, accused of sipping lean and generally just being a fuck-up during his first couple of seasons in the NFL.
According to the report, the night before the Broncos’ Week 16 game against the Texans in 2013, Miller and a couple of other teammates went out clubbing and ended up breaking curfew.
Then head coach John Fox addressed it during a team meeting, and Manning suggested that all three players be sent home.
Fox relented, let the three guys play and the Broncos ended up winning the game 37-13. Karma is a bitch, as Miller ended up tearing his ACL in the first quarter, missing the remainder of the season.
