I just came across this. Miller sues the NFL. Von Miller is listed as a plaintiff along with established NFL players are suing the NFL for collaborating against the players to "cheat" them out of money. Miller is the only draft prospect to be listed as a plaintiff so far. Some think Miller is in the lawsuit to combat a potential rookie wage scale. PFT's Mike Florio suggests if the lawsuit continues in to 2012, a new draft prospect will be added to the lawsuit to continue fighting a rookie wage scale. And yes, PFT is the NFL's version of TMZ and almost as reliable as Wikipedia.
So I ask you all, what does this mean for Miller's draft status or the likelihood the Cardinals will draft him? I think this is foreshadowing some difficulty in getting Miller signed because he'll hold out to get the most money. Or on the other hand, was he chosen to represent the upcoming rookies because of his age and experience? I'd have to say this is either a huge Pro or a huge Con in the evaluation process depending on how it actually went down.
I still want Von Miller at 5. Hopefully this helps the chances that he is still there when we pick. C'mon Von, no matter what you're going to be the highest paid LB in the draft. So keep up with the scare tactics because we know you want to be in Cardinal Red!
