Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller likely will be suspended at least six games for violation of the league’s substance policy, according to league sources.
The announcement could come as early as Monday but the sides are still negotiating the final number on a deal that is expected to be formalized sometime this week, the sources said.
Miller is not likely to go forward with an appeal, though all sides were trying to finalize the suspension’s conditions.
Miller met last Thursday with the NFL Players Association with some hope he could have the suspension reduced to four games, sources said, but another source familiar with the process was convinced it will be at least a six-game suspension.
Been told Miller’s recent arrest is unrelated to the length of suspension here. The steps of suspension in drug program are 4, then 8 games.
