NFL - US Sports: Miller opts to wing it to Buffalo

Von Miller's time in Los Angeles was short but sweet after the Super Bowl-winning pass rusher chose to sign a long-term deal with the Buffalo Bills instead of staying with the Rams a while longer.

And the Bills, who are 7/1 to win Super Bowl LVII, also added former Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard in a flurry of activity on the first day of the new league season.

Miller takes up huge Bills offer

Miller is heading to upstate New York on a six-year, $120million deal and with a clear belief that he can turn a third team into Super Bowl winners.

The former Denver Broncos star was traded to the Rams midway through the 2021 season and, although he wasn't a major contributor for Sean McVay's team until the play-offs, Miller was a big factor in helping topple the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium.

McVay was desperate to keep the 32-year-old and tried to tug at the player's heartstrings to keep him in the City of Angels, but the appeal of helping Buffalo win a first-ever NFL crown - and the incredible contract offer the Bills made - turned his head.

Broncos go for Gregory

The Broncos, just like the jilted Rams, were keen on a reunion too and quickly moved to sign former Dallas Cowboys edge rusher Randy Gregory once it became clear he was heading elsewhere.

The Bills' swoop for Howard, who saw his opportunities restricted by injury and the arrival of Tom Brady's favourite target Rob Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, came at a significantly smaller cost on a one-year, $3.5m deal.
