Seven months post-surgery, Miller is showing flashes of his old self and looks determined to atone for a trouble-filled 2013 season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a torn right ACL in Week 16.

Displaying his old form in 1-on-1 pass-rushing drills and 11-on-11 team drills, it's apparent we're seeing the Von Miller of old, the one who set a franchise record with 18 1/2 sacks in 2012, not the player who was bogged down by extra pounds and the weight of the world last season when he managed just five sacks.

The Denver Broncos have exercised their 2015 option on pass-rusher Von Miller. He now has two years remaining on his rookie deal. He'll make $3.25 million this upcoming season and $9.754 million in 2015 if he's on the Broncos roster next March.

Miller had 30 sacks his first two seasons, including a club record 18 1/2 in 2012. But his 2013 season began with a six-game drug suspension, included several off-the-field distractions and ended with a torn ACL in December that sidelined him for the Super Bowl.

Miller has shed 20 pounds as he works his way back from a torn right ACL and says his goal is to "play every game" in 2014.

Miller bulked up to 270 pounds last season, 24 more than when he was the second overall pick out of Texas A+M in 2011. Miller is hoping to bounce back from a rough season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a blown out knee on Dec. 22.
