At some point in the past day or so, someone suggested or reported that Broncos linebacker Von Miller risks further punishment from the league for his recent traffic-related infractions, from citations to bench warrants arising from a failure to show up for traffic court.
Traffic violations, however, are generally not covered by the personal-conduct policy. While the league, we’re told, will monitor such situations, the NFL usually will take no action and have no comment.
In this specific case, it would be highly unusual for Miller’s traffic situation to exacerbate his ongoing suspension, given that the suspension arises under the substance-abuse policy, not the personal-conduct policy.
So while the repeated tales of Miller being pulled over and/or failing to show up to take care of the ensuing traffic tickets make him look careless, it’s not the kind of thing that will result in the NFL taking action against him.
