ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Von Miller has a new nickname and a new shoe just in time for the playoffs.

The Texas A&M alum, who topped his superb Rookie of the Year season with a team-record 18 1/2 sacks in his second year with the Denver Broncos, wanted to fly to Arlington, Texas, to watch his Aggies play in the Cotton Bowl.

Trouble is, coach John Fox scheduled a team lift last Saturday to keep players from jetting off for the weekend. So, Miller had to watch on TV as Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, known as "Johnny Football," guided the Aggies past Oklahoma 41-13 Friday night.

The next morning, Fox dubbed his premiere pass-rusher "Vonny Football."

Miller likes the nickname and joked he'll call his new custom-made Adidas shoe the same thing.
