AFC Notes: Von Miller, Tua Tagovailoa, Bills, Dolphins, Jets


It seems that Bills pass rusher Von Miller is planning to work towards becoming an NFL general manager once his playing days are over and is already in the process of learning the ropes.

“You gotta build relationships,” Miller said of being a GM, via Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN. “How do I know this guy’s a great coach? How do I know he’s a bad coach? How will he fit into my culture? What is my culture?”

“To take the next step, I want the people around me to know, like, OK, nothing was given to me. I worked,” Miller continued. “I evaluated these players, spent time with coaching, scouting department, spent time with the pro personnel guys … I want to be in that position where I know my s—.”

“Despite the challenges and despite it being a competitive market, despite the pressure, despite all the perceived negative things about the job, this is what I want,” Miller added. “I like everything about it. I still want to be able to lead a team and be around guys and develop players. This is only the second time in my life where I had that feeling like, ‘OK, this is what I want to do.”
