Remember when Von Miller was suspended for six games and the Broncos might be in trouble? Yeah that second part never happened. Denver went 6-0 during Miller's suspension and never skipped a beat. So it probably feels like it went by really fast. Just don't tell Miller that. The linebacker speaking with the Denver Post said the suspension crawled by. "It hasn't gone by fast though" Miller said. "A lot of people have said it went by fast. It hasn't. It wasn't easy. And I don't want to get away from that. I want to stay with that focus that it's not easy." Miller's suspension drew heavy scrutiny not just because he's one of the top defensive players in the league but also because Miller attempted to corrupt the drug-test program. But Miller wants to make sure people know he doesn't "have a substance-abuse problem." "I don't have a substance-abuse problem" Miller said. "I feel like I've definitely made some mistakes in the past. I can't shy away from that. But I'm working hard to fix it. I'm working hard to gain everybody's trust back. All I can ask is people judge me from my actions going forward. I'm working hard to gain trust back. I'm very confident I'll be able to do that." Miller says that he has a prescription to Adderall for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) which he's had since his freshman year in college at Texas A&M. That's why his suspension wasn't for substance abuse (though he did test positive for marijuana in 2011 as a rookie).
