Miller was traded to the Los Angeles Rams midway through last season and helped the side win the Super Bowl. After receiving a number of offers as a free agent, the LB ultimately went where the money called and signed with the Buffalo Bills.
He signed a staggering 6-year $120 million deal with the Bills.
Although he is 33 years old, the former Super Bowl MVP is confident that he will play out his 6-year deal with the Bills, saying:
‘This is a six-year deal, so I’m looking forward to playing the whole thing. I’m trying to play the whole thing out. Tom Brady‘s done it, Bruce Smith has done it. All the guys that I look up to when it comes to longevity in careers. So I just take it one day at a time, and I’m just gonna take whatever God gives me.”
“I sit and talk to young guys, they ask me, ‘How do you do it?’ I’m like, ‘Bro, I honestly do everything that you possibly can do to keep your body fresh. Whenever I leave here, the facility, the rest of my day is getting ready for the next day.”

At age 33, the LB will probably need a similar situation like he did in LA in order to perform. With the Rams, he was accompanied by Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey who could draw double teams and delay routes respectively. This provided the former Bronco with plenty of opportunities to make plays. If given a similar situation in Buffalo, it becomes likely he will at least play out his new contract.
