Broncos linebacker Von Miller lost a big chunk of money during his six-game suspension and now he’s out a little bit more thanks to a fine for a hit in Week 14.

PFT has confirmed with the league that Miller has been fined $25,000 for roughing Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during the Broncos’ 51-28 victory. Miller struck Fitzpatrick in the helmet with his helmet, drawing a flag that helped the Titans to a touchdown that gave them a 21-10 lead in the first half of the game. Titans coach Mike Munchak said Monday that he hoped the league would take further action against Miller.

“I think that is disturbing because that was unnecessary,” Munchak said, via the Tennessean. “They flagged it, which was the right thing, and luckily our quarterback wasn’t hurt.”

It’s Miller’s first fine for an illegal hit this season, but he’s no stranger to the process. He was fined three times for roughing the passer during the 2012 season and a couple more times during his rookie season, leading to some talk of a suspension for his repeated violations. Miller wound up getting suspended for other reasons, but the possibility of another one still remains should Miller keep piling up infractions.

    To me it’s not the fact that the rules of the game make things difficult for defenders it’s just the fact that the vikings are a bad football team.

    one of the dirtiest players in the league. constantly sticks his legs out to trip RBs and QBs when he can’t cleanly make the play.

    A dirty, cheating, egotistical Demarcus Ware wannabe. He leads a pathetic defense.

    The Cowboys d meanwhile will find its stride this week, and improve week to week on their way to their 6th ring on February 2, 2014

    He mistook Fitz for his smack dealer.

    Fitz wasn’t going doctor Miller’s urine sample, so Miller clobbered him.

    Every now and then a player will accidentally come in a little too late on a QB hit and draw a foul and fine. Its going to happen, It is impossible to avoid it every time, unless you completely alter your defensive play, which would destroy the integrity of the game. But then you have a guy like Von Miller, who really needs a suspension to set him on the right track. Until this happens, expect to see plenty more of these exact articles.

    The entire Bronco defense should be fined for not showing up for big games

    Von is starting to get a gut.

    If Chron Miller was called for offsides every time he actually is, he’d have ZERO sacks in his career.

    On top of that, he’s simply a dirty player, period. It makes perfect sense though. Del Rio was one of the dirtiest players of his time also.
