Fresh off of winning a Super Bowl with the Rams, Von Miller decided to embrace a new challenge by signing with the Bills.
Von Miller didn’t just sign with the Bills this year looking for a payday. He’s got his eyes on history.
The two-time Super Bowl winner is looking for a third and he thinks Buffalo is the team to help him do it.
Of course, he could have also stuck it out with the Rams in hopes of winning another ring in Los Angeles, but there was more to his decision than that.
Von Miller explains why he left the Rams for the Bills
“I could have just stayed in LA and just rode off into the sunset and just rushed with Aaron Donald and piled up sacks but I wasn’t content. I wasn’t content where I was at. I still wanted more,” Miller explained. “To come here selfishly and be the only guy to ever win three Super Bowls with three different teams, selfishly that’s what I want.”
If Miller wins a Super Bowl with the Bills, he will become the only player in NFL history to win three rings with three different teams. Many have done it with two different franchises, but never with a third.
So Miller obviously wants to make history, but there were 29 teams he could have chosen to do that. Why the Bills specifically?
“This is a special team, they’re right on the edge and I just wanted to be that last drop to overflow these guys,” Miller said.
Buffalo is close indeed. They went to the AFC Championship Game in 2021 and were seconds away from going again before suffering a freak loss to the Chiefs in overtime earlier this year. Miller may really be the piece that puts them over the top.
