Roger Goodell Could Add To Broncos LB Von Miller's Suspension With Recent Arrest
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has the authority to add to the six-game suspension of Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller in light of Miller's recent arrest for driving without a license and speeding according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.
Miller is one game into his suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and Wednesday team officials were privately wrestling with the revelation that Miller was cited after he had returned from meeting with NFL Players Association officials about his suspension. Miller was meeting with union attorneys to discuss the Broncos' intention to reclaim about $1.25 million worth of signing bonus money because of the suspension. The team plans to simply withhold the money from Miller's game checks when he is slated to be paid again in Week 7 -- and the NFLPA is set to battle that decision.
Miller was also arrested last month on a failure to appear warrant.
