Bills DC Leslie Frazier: You don’t get to coach a player like Von Miller very often

Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier couldn’t be happier to have Von Miller on his team.

Frazier told Katherine Fitzgerald of the Buffalo News that Miller is going to be a major piece of the puzzle for the Bills.

“Oh, you talk about excitement? Brandon Beane and Sean [McDermott] did a terrific job,” Frazier said. “He’s a Hall of Famer as a pass rusher, and he’s done a terrific job throughout his career. And now, for him to be able to come to Buffalo and help us to reach our goals as a team, it’s exciting, very exciting.”

Frazier said the Bills’ defensive staff will come up with a good plan for making the most of Miller’s talents.

“We’re looking forward to sitting down as a staff and just going through all the different ways we can utilize his talents,” Frazier said. “You want to get this right, because you don’t get a chance to coach a guy like this very often.”

Miller has won a Super Bowl with the Broncos and with the Rams, and now the Bills will hope he can become the first player ever to win a Super Bowl with three different teams.

  1. Bills are smart. They have a 2 year window where they could win it all. Then the salary cap will work its magic. So go “all in” now. This is their shot.

  2. Being a Bills fan has taught me how short and fragile life is.
    And that I’m not alone being a glutton for pain and anguish.

    Leslie just stuck a flag in Buffalos MO, wasted opportunities.

    Cursed

  3. The trend has been set in the last 2 years by Tampa and the Rams. The window is short, so do whatever is necessary.
    Compare the cap hits. In 2022, Josh Allen and Von Miller have a combined cap hit of just over $21 million. In 2 years, their cap hit is just under $63 million combined. And that is when Miller is a 35 years old edge rusher.

  4. Von Miller is also very fortunate to be working with Fraiser and McDermott. They have been able to field top 5 defenses with good talent and excellent strategy. With Miller’s talent and Fraiser’s strategy, the Bills defense will be fun to watch.

  5. LOL..2 year window?
    As long as the Bills have Josh Allen, the window remains WIDE OPEN..

    He’s right, Von Miller is usually in the trainers room rehabbing.
    —————————
    Other than 2013 when he was injured and only played 9 games he has started 15 or more games every season of his 10 year career. Trainer’s room? Really?

  7. And you don’t get the chance to lose the AFC Championship by allowing the opposing team to score in 14 seconds either.

  8. This guy is a big addition for the Bills. With Tyreek leaving KC, the Bills have to be the favorites to win the AFC. As a Pats fan, I am still reeling from the absolute beat down they administered to our team back in January. It’s going to take a while to shake that off

    Cold weather won’t be Von Miller’s friend.

    Yeah! Especially after all those years playing in the tropic weather of Denver!

  10. Miller is just one piece, they also shored up the middle of the defensive line. Expect them to take a corner with their first draft pick. Their defence is going to be even tougher to play against this season.

  11. Other than 2013 when he was injured and only played 9 games he has started 15 or more games every season of his 10 year career. Trainer’s room? Really?

    How about 2020?

  12. Von Miller’s Denver film shows he is cooked and inconsistent Bills will still find ways to lose games they are not supposed to like when they lost to the Steelers, Jaguars, Patriots, Tennessee, and the Colts. That’s how the Bills missed a higher playoffs seed and ended up playing at Arrowhead.

  13. Bills need a star running back. It’s the only missing link. Breece Hall might fill the Bill. Sorry, silly play on words. There’s enough good cornerbacks in this draft that one talented one will be left for the Bills in the second round.

  14. Other than 2013 when he was injured and only played 9 games he has started 15 or more games every season of his 10 year career. Trainer’s room? Really?

    He missed all of 2020 with an injury. Didnt play a lick.

  15. Cold weather won’t be Von Miller’s friend.

    Not all cold is the same…Denver cold is usually low humidity, not that windy, and lots of blue bird skies, they get about 250 days of sunshine a year. Buffalo has lots of wind, its usually rainy/sleet/snow and low grey dark clouds.

    Luckily we play the Pats twice a year and will no longer need a punter. And at least we agree the Bills are favored over all the teams you mentioned because we’re SB contenders – the Bills lost 3 of those games bc we didn’t execute in RZ (Pit, NE windstorm and bad RZ execution, TN gutsy winner attitude go for the win not tie). The Bills had a mediocre season and were still one of the best teams in AFC. Pats should focus on Miami because as of now, you’re looking at 3rd with that sad team in NE)

  17. Patsfan4life: Good point, that is indeed the reason the Bills didn’t get homefield throughout the playoffs. And the Patriots know acutely what the Bills do to teams at home in the playoffs.

  18. You are getting a 32 year old Von Miller not the game wrecker he was 5 years ago.

  19. Bills have talent but coaching is still questionable. Bill Belicheck would have not lost that Bills playoff game last year- no kickoff and then terrible defensive calls in last seconds of game almost handed to KC.

  20. Pats fans have been trying to downplay this signing since it happened.

    It’s what I used to do when the Bills weren’t competitive, and the Pats signed someone good.

    That’s all it really is. Coping. It’s not reality. Miller will change that defense significantly.
