Von Miller’s Annual Halloween Party Might Have Played a Role in Him Being Traded

SJ - November 1, 2021

Von Miller was traded on Monday to the Rams.  The move by the Broncos was shocking to many around the league, but it had reportedly been quietly in the works since last week.

So why did the Broncos trade the All-Pro linebacker?  His annual Halloween party might have played a role in the move.  That's according to the folks at Pro Football Network.

From Pro Football Network:

A source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFN that Miller became upset when teammates declined to kick in for his annual Halloween party. It’s a massive affair with a six-figure price tag. This year, it featured Quavo from the hip-hop act Migos.

Miller’s request for financial help came as a surprise to his teammates. They had assumed they were invited guests to the party, not co-hosts. Miller even wanted rookies to contribute several thousand dollars for an event that they had no role in planning.

Miller, who has earned over $90 million in his career, threatened to disrupt the Broncos’ locker room chemistry over what in his mind was an unpaid debt, the source tells PFN. We’re also told coach Vic Fangio and general manager George Paton became aware of the rift. That may have factored into the team’s decision to move on from the eight-time Pro Bowler despite the Broncos sitting just a half-game out of the AFC’s seventh seed.

Miller throws a party and makes his teammates pay for it?  He's been doing this every year?  You can't invite people to a party then hit them with a bill when they show up.

That's a dick move, especially from a guy who has raked in the type of money Miller has.  No wonder his teammates wanted his ass gone and no wonder the Broncos are paying $9 million to get his ass out of there.
