It's just business and it's business that's best for the Broncos from the pass rusher's perspective.
Perhaps it's a subtle shot at Sanders for not wanting to be part of the Denver franchise and doing what's best for it. Perhaps it's Miller being a leader and aiming to set a tone. Maybe it's both.
As Tuesday's trade deadline draws near, it's likely the Broncos will continue to be sellers, but there is plenty of young talent still in Denver and Miller realizes it's there or returning.
"We have a really good roster of young players," he said. "We get [Bradley] Chubb back next year."
It's most certainly been an arduous season so far and Miller admitted as much, including from an individual standpoint as he's tallied just 2.5 sacks. It's the lowest total of his decorated career through the first seven games of a season.
"As tough as it to see 2.5 sacks for my fans, only imagine how I feel about it, coming into a season with the highest expectations you could probably think of," Miller said.
