The Denver Broncos have to be extremely frustrated with All-Pro linebacker Von Miller, who’s currently suspended by the NFL for six games, and now it appears he could be in trouble with the law for another speeding ticker and subsequent failure to appear in court.
“We are looking into the report,” Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth told NFL Media via email.
This news comes after reports came out today that Miller was cited just last week for speeding and driving with a suspended license. Broncos head coach John Fox just came out and said the team is “not happy about” Miller’s latest off-field transgressions, and this certainly won’t help his cause.
The New York Giants reached an agreement on a one-year deal Tuesday with former starting running back Brandon Jacobs, who spent his first seven seasons with the Giants before struggling through an injury-plagued season with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012. The 49ers ultimately waived Jacobs in December after he was suspended for the final three regular-season games because he used social media to complain about a lack of playing time.
So what’s he been up to since his last stint with an NFL team? It would seem he was bulking up quite a bit:
Brandon Jacobs said he weighed in at 265 … down from his summer weight of 290.

Jacobs was never regarded as a speedier back, often using his brute-strength to run through defenders on his way to 4,856 career rushing yards and 56 touchdowns.
The Arizona Cardinals looked like a rejuvenated team Sunday with Carson Palmer throwing a pair of touchdown passes to wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who caught only two TDs during last year’s disastrous season.
Despite a nice showing, Fitzgerald’s Cardinals didn’t wind up on the winning side of the scoreboard in Week 1 in a 27-24 loss to the St. Louis Rams, and they’ll need him on the field if they want to avoid an 0-2 start this week against the Detroit Lions, and the All-Pro receiver was limited in practice Wednesday.
