On Saturday, the Kentucky Derby will be run for the 145th time. Broncos linebacker Von Miller will contribute to the NBC coverage of the event for the first time.

Miller will serve as a “lifestyle correspondent” from the site of the legendary race.

“As a fan of the Kentucky Derby, I am thrilled to be a part of NBC Sports’ coverage of this historic sporting event,” Miller said in a release. “I look forward to showcasing the excitement, fashion and enthusiasm at Churchill Downs.”

“Von will offer a fresh perspective on many of the unique lifestyle elements surrounding the Derby, including style, fashion, and popular social media trends,” said NBC Sports Group’s Rob Hyland, who serves as Coordinator Producer for the Triple Crown horse racing coverage on NBC.

Miller, the Super Bowl 50 MVP, has prior media experience, contributing to the Super Bowl LIII pregame coverage for CBS.

  1. I was waiting to see some tie to the event. Maybe he owned a horse or was a native of Louisville? But nothing. They could have went with an actor, an experienced journalist, a model, etc. But Von Miller got the call. Just so random.

    Von is an avid outdoorsman/hunter/fisherman and wears cowboy hats and boots etc… maybe that’s the connection

  3. Von is a fashionista with a laid back personality. He will bring a sense of humor different fashion sense to a very uppity, white-collar event.

  4. haha love the raider haters commenting on here, just glad we don’t have to hear Mack should have been giving the opportunity every time Von does something cool. Von is the Man!

    Is this the alternative to giving yourself a thumbs up?

  6. They need someone else around to spread the blame to when another horse goes down and has to be euthanized…an unnatural sport conceived by a king, for the entertainment of kings, which is why it is still known as “the sport of kings” (the loftiness of which remains a misnomer).

    Why would Miller want any part of this ?

    So what exactly does that have to do with Miller being a fashion reporter at the Derby?

    And who the hell makes these decisions anyways? I’ve seen what Miller wears and fashion it ain’t. He and Cam Newton both look like cartoon characters. Who comes up with those outfits, Hanna and Barbera?

    I wish he would just concentrate on not needing oxygen after every play. Just get in better shape.

    Von has asthma! Needs it to breathe. If he was out of shape he wouldn’t be able to split double teams for a strip sack.
