Eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller couldn't hide his happiness and excitement while speaking to reporters for the first time as a Los Angeles Ram. This week, the Rams pulled off a big trade that landed Miller on their roster.
"It feels like a movie," Miller said several times on Wednesday, per ESPN. "When I took off Tuesday morning, I had a nice view of the mountains and I told myself, taking off you're a Denver Bronco, when I land I'm a Los Angeles Ram.
... I went to sleep 4-4 and woke up 7-1." The Rams are 7-1 and they are one of the top contenders for the Super Bow. "This team is ready to win right now, ready to win championships right now," said Miller, who earned a Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos.
"And I'm excited to be a part of it."
Miller already comfortable with the Rams
"I've been wearing blue and orange forever," said Miller, as he looked down to check out his new attire. "Everything just looks weird, but it feels extremely right.
It feels right to be here. It feels like this is the right thing for me." Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is excited to have Miller on the roster. "I was excited. I've been a fan of Von Miller for a long time," said quarterback Stafford, who also was brought to Los Angeles as part of a blockbuster trade over the offseason.
"He's a big-time player in this league, and just adding him to a defense that's already got a bunch of playmakers has the possibility of being something really special." Miller is dealing with a minor injury but he expects to make his debut this Sunday when the Rams take on the Tennessee Titans.
"It's still coming along," he said. "I still have some lingering issues, but I know if I can continue to take it day-by-day, I feel good for this weekend. I feel good about my recovery process." The Rams defense now includes Miller, Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey and Leonard Floyd.
"You hear stories of the Fearsome Foursome and you hear stories of this legendary defense and we want to re-create that," said Miller, who has 4.5 sacks in seven games this season. "They've been playing great defense all year.
I just want to add to it. I want to add some of the things that I do best, my leadership and my energy and my positive vibes."
