Von Miller takes up yoga with Jason Pierre-Paul

After a great rookie season, Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller turned to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul for tips on how to have an even better second season.

Pierre-Paul’s advice: Get more flexible.

I did a lot of yoga-type stuff,” Miller told DenverBroncos.com. “I was down in Miami with Jason Pierre-Paul. That was the advice he gave me. He said it was a long season. I really didn’t do a lot of weight training. I just did yoga with him and hopefully I can have the type of season that he had last year.”

Miller said he made a point of picking the brains of — and working out with — some of the league’s best pass rushers this offseason.

“I watch them just like they watch me,” Miller said. “I was able to be around [Cowboys outside linebacker] DeMarcus Ware a little bit. When you’re around those guys, stuff just comes out, you don’t have to force that or ask them, ‘What are you doing in this situation?’” Miller said. “It just happens. Being around those guys hopefully was an experience that helped me as a player. I was happy to be around JPP. Not too many players get to be in that situation. Hopefully I can have the type of season that he had last year. [Seeing him win the Super Bowl] is a lot of motivation, and that’s where we want to be.”

If that’s where the Broncos are going to get, Miller will be one of the guys who takes them there. And it’s a good sign that he’s made good use of his offseason.

    Last thing on earth I would’ve expected JPP to do in the offseason.

    Pierre-Paul is a down to earth, humble player that gets it and Von Miller is on his way as well. Both are fantastic talents. Good for them.

    Gotta love guys that treat it like their job, and do whatever they can to keep getting better.

    i can picture JPP sitting crosslegged levitating about 10 inches off the ground. meditating and doing breathing exercises.

    Tuck walks by, does a double take. he turns to osi “dude, is that JPP literally defying the laws of gravity?

    Osi: “if you didnt realise after last year that the laws of physics dont apply to JPP i dunno who you were watching, man”
