Miller's age-30 season saw a significant drop in his pass-rushing grade from Pro Football Focus, along with a career low in sacks per game (0.53). After pulling no lower than an 85.6 pass-rushing grade through his 1st 8 seasons, Miller checked in at just 71.4 in 2019.
He still managed to rank 8th in the league in total pressures, though, and graded out elite in run defense. And he did so despite some complications. Summer opened with contract negotiations that seemed to get a little contentious before producing a long-term extension. More importantly, Miller dealt with an ankle sprain and an MCL issue, the latter of which cost him a game.
The Broncos get OLB Bradley Chubb back from an ACL tear on the opposite edge, and they imported DE Jurrell Casey from Tennessee. Miller spent more time than usual on the right edge after Chubb went down last season. Returning to the left at near full time should help his 2020 consistency.
Miller remains a player worth betting on in pressure-friendly scoring formats.
