Despite his advanced age, 2021 showed that Miller can still play at a high level. After starting the year with the Denver Broncos, the Los Angeles Rams gave up a second- and third-round pick to secure the edge defender’s rights for the rest of the season. That investment paid off, as Miller played some fantastic football down the stretch and took his game to another level in the playoffs.

During the Rams four-game postseason run, Miller recorded four sacks, 12 tackles, six tackles-for-loss, and six quarterback hits while helping Los Angeles win their first title since the Kurt Warner days. Miller’s star shone brightest in the biggest stage, as he recorded two of four sacks against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56. In total, Miller finished the 2021 regular season with 9.5 sacks, 50 tackles, 19 tackles-for-loss, and 17 quarterback hits.

Miller originally entered the NFL as a first-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Selected by the Denver Broncos, the Texas A&M product immediately made an impact while playing a huge role in Denver’s playoff push. In total, Miller started and appeared in 15 games, recorded 11.5 sacks, 64 combined tackles, 19 tackles-for-loss, and 29 quarterback hits. For his efforts, Miller earned Defensive Player of the Year honors and a spot on the Pro Bowl team.

Miller built off that impressive rookie season to become one of the best edge defenders in football. In 2012, the first-round pick finished the season with a staggering 18.5 sacks, 68 tackles, 28 tackles-for-loss, and 25 quarterback hits while earning First-Team All-Pro honors.

Throughout Miller’s storied career, the edge defender has recorded a combined 115.5 sacks, 540 tackles, 154 tackles-for-loss, and 233 quarterback hits.
