Von Miller planning for long-term stay with Buffalo Bills, wants to play out six-year contract

After picking up a second Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams last season, Von Miller is now pursuing success with the Buffalo Bills, after signing a six-year contract with the franchise this summer.

Eight-time Pro Bowler Von Miller signed a big money deal this off-season, agreeing a six-year deal with the Buffalo Bills worth $120million.

The former MVP now has two Super Bowls to his name and has cemented his legacy as one of the best linebackers in the history of the NFL, and at 33 years old he still sees plenty of potential left in his career.

Big multi-year contracts don't always prove to be written in stone, whether it be through extensions or being cut, but Miller insists he's determined to play out all six years of his deal with the Bills.

"This is a six-year deal, so I'm looking forward to playing the whole thing," said Miller.

"I'm trying to play the whole thing out. Tom Brady's done it, Bruce Smith has done it. All the guys that I look up to when it comes to longevity in careers.

"So I just take it one day at a time, and I'm just gonna take whatever God gives me. My intention is to play the whole thing out. I'm a real sicko when you get to know me. My mindset is different."

With his current contract running until 2027, Miller will be going on 39 upon it's expiration. With his sights set on breaking the sack record in the NFL, he'll be eager to extend his career as long as possible.

With the current NFL record sat at 200, it's not out of reach for Miller, who has 115.5 to his name so far. Take into account that he missed the entire 2020 season through shoulder injury and suddenly six more years at the highest level could be enough to help him reach the milestone.

If there's one thing for certain, it's that Miller is as determined as ever. He stated that positivity and staying healthywill be crucial to his long-term aims.

"I'm 33 but I honestly don't feel 33," Miller said.

"I think mentally, once you start feeling old, it's just done. I've been in the league a long time and when guys start complaining about, of course you're gonna have injuries and stuff, but when guys start complaining about, man it's cold out here. Or we got practice again today. Or just little things that I just try to stay out of. I try to keep my mind positive.

"Of course, I'm getting older. But I don't feel 33 at all. The main thing is I don't look 33 at all.

"When I'm running out here with the guys, I make it a point to show to my teammates and earn their trust that hey, I'm 33 years old but I can run with you. I can run with anybody and I'm healthy and I take care of my body."
