According to Pro Football Focus, Broncos linebackers only missed 7.1 percent of tackle attempts last season.
That was the lowest figure in football. Von Miller and Brandon Marshall were both top-four 4-3 outside linebackers according to Pro Football Focus while DeMarcus Ware received his eighth Pro Bowl nod in the last nine seasons. The Broncos are shifting to a 3-4 this season under new DC Wade Phillips but the linebacking corps should be just as dominant as it was in 2014. Jul 8 - 12:35 PM

The Broncos will use Von Miller at strong-side outside linebacker in new DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.

Miller has been a strong-side player since he entered the league, so there shouldn't be much of an adjustment. "It's a position where, if a guy can rush, he can match up well. That's why we kept him there," Phillips said. "You'd think he'd be a Will linebacker who rushes almost every play, but you can rush the Sam linebacker too, so that's what we'll do." Whereas ex-Broncos DC Jack Del Rio rarely blitzed last season, Phillips is expected to run a far more aggressive scheme, which could help Miller's sack total.

Broncos OLB Von Miller said he's "pretty excited" about the switch to the 3-4 defense.

Miller was a 3-4 edge rusher at Texas A&M before being drafted into the Broncos' 4-3 as the No. 2 overall pick in 2011. Coming off a December 2013 torn ACL, Miller appeared in all 16 games last season and ran away as PFF's top-ranked 4-3 pass-rushing outside linebacker. He would have been the No. 2-ranked 3-4 edge rusher behind Justin Houston. Miller has dropped 10 pounds this offseason and should be a big beneficiary under new DC Wade Phillips.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) is expected to make his preseason debut against the Texans Saturday.

Miller has been sidelined since tearing his ACL on December 22. He avoided the PUP list at the start of camp, and has been practicing full speed for the last week. He should be good to go Week 1.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) has been cleared for limited work, and will avoid opening camp on the active/PUP list.

The Broncos will ease Miller back after he tore his right ACL in Week 16. Miller will be held out of contact until the third preseason game, at the earliest. Barring setbacks, Miller will be on the field for the opener. He slimmed down in the offseason and is fully committed to a bounce-back season. With DeMarcus Ware opposite him, Miller should easily post double-digit sacks.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (ACL) says he's modeling his rehab after Adrian Peterson's.

"I'm looking at the Adrian Peterson story every single day," Miller said. "It's motivation for me." Although Miller has been sitting out of 11-on-11s this offseason, he's going "full speed" in individual and position drills. He could open camp on the active/PUP list, but barring a setback, will be ready for Week 1.

Broncos SLB Von Miller has shed weight after playing at 270 pounds in 2013.

Miller played in the 255 range his first two NFL seasons. He called the weight gain "an experiment" that didn't pan out. Miller managed five sacks across nine games following a six-game suspension, then tore his ACL in December. He's back to being fully committed to football and is a major bounce-back candidate with DeMarcus Ware opposite him. Miller hopes to be ready Week 1.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (ACL surgery) is participating in individual drills at Organized Team Activities.

Miller has not yet been medically cleared for team drills, but it's a good sign that he's able to participate at all after tearing his right ACL last Week 16. Miller is on track to start in Week 1. He has 35 sacks through 40 career games.

Broncos exercised SLB Von Miller's fifth-year club option for 2015.

Due $3.238 million this season, Miller's option year is worth $9.754 million. Although Miller is recovering from a torn ACL and was suspended the first six games of last season for corrupting the league's drug-testing policy, the move is still a no-brainer for the Broncos. Only 25 years old, Miller has racked up 35 sacks across 40 career games. He's highly questionable for Week 1.

Von Miller (ACL tear) said he'd "feeling good" and remains on schedule with his rehab.

Miller underwent surgery on Jan. 9. "With today's medicine and what's going on now like ACL, it's really not as serious as it used to be," he said. "I'm a 100 percent positive I'll be able to come back not only be the same Von, (but) I got to be better." Miller and fellow edge-bender DeMarcus Ware have the potential to form the league's most dangerous pass-rushing duo.

The Broncos are expected to exercise SLB Von Miller's fifth-year option for 2015 by the May 3 deadline.

Doing so would keep Miller under Denver's control for the next two seasons at a total cost of $12.993 million, a bargain rate if Miller can rediscover his pre-2013 form. Miller tore his right ACL in Week 16 last season and underwent surgery on January 9. It's unclear whether he'll be medically cleared by Week 1.

Broncos OLB Von Miller underwent surgery on his torn right ACL Thursday.

As previously reported, Miller is facing a 6-9 month recovery timeline. That's just a vague estimate before Miller gets back on the practice field. He'll almost certainly begin training camp on the reserve/PUP list, and is highly questionable for Week 1.

Von Miller will undergo ACL surgery on Wednesday.

Miller tore his right ACL in Week 16. Players typically need a few weeks for the swelling to go down before having surgery. A member of Dr. James Andrews' group will perform the reconstruction in Florida. Miller will miss all of OTAs and likely at least a portion of training camp. Shaun Phillips and Nate Irving will try and pick up the slack in the playoffs.

Broncos placed OLB Von Miller on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season.

LB Brandon Marshall was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Miller is reportedly facing a 6-9 month recovery timeline, but initial ACL return timetables are always just vague estimates. There's a real chance Miller will be back for Week 1, but as Robert Griffin III proved this season, that's not necessarily the best thing. Dependent on his rare explosiveness off the edge, Miller would be well served not to rush. The 24-year-old superstar has 35 sacks across 40 career games.

The Broncos are optimistic Von Miller will fully recover from his torn ACL because there is no other damage to his knee.

ACL injuries are sometimes accompanied by damage to the MCL, LCL or PCL. Miller sustained a clean tear, which should make his impending surgery and subsequent rehab relatively straightforward. According the Denver Post, he's facing a 6-9 month timetable and the "expectation" is that the dominant edge rusher will be back for Week 1 of 2014. Of course, putting timetables on Miller just days removed from his injury is silly. Ask Robert Griffin III or Derrick Rose.
