DENVER (KKTV) - Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is heading to Los Angeles.

Miller confirmed it himself when speaking with media outside of the Broncos training facility on Monday.

“It’s surprising. I love the Denver Broncos. Everything is still just new and it’s hard to really put the emotions into words. This is all I know” said Miller just before he it was obvious his emotions were getting the best of him.

As recently as March, the Broncos and Miller seemed thrilled to be staying together, with Miller stating after a brief flirtation with free agency that he wanted “to be here forever.”

Under the trade, the Rams get the eight-time Pro Bowl player and the Broncos two 2022 draft picks in return, according to ESPN.

“Blockbuster: Broncos are finalizing a trade to send eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two second-day 2022 draft picks, league sources tell ESPN. Miller is now saying his goodbyes to his friends in the Broncos’ training facility,” a tweet by ESPN’s Adam Schefter read.

Miller was in the final season of a six-year, $114.5 million contract with the Broncos. He and kicker Brandon McManus were the last active members of the Broncos who played in Super Bowl 50.
