Von Miller Teases Bills’ Draft Plans Amid WR Trade Speculations

Von Miller, the Buffalo Bills’ defensive standout, has sent social media abuzz with hints of a potential blockbuster trade at the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft.

Taking to his Instagram story, Miller posted a video with the caption “Brandon Beane arriving to the 2024 NFL draft to trade up for a WR” and “In Beane we TRUST Bills Mafia LFG.”

This move comes on the heels of the Bills’ recent trade, sending superstar wide receiver Stefon Diggs and two late-round picks to the Houston Texans in exchange for a second-round pick. Houston swiftly adjusted Diggs’ contract, making him eligible for free agency next year.

Adding to the Bills’ concerns, they lost their No. 2 wide receiver, Gabe Davis, to the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency. This leaves Curtis Samuel, a free agent pickup, as the top wideout on the Bills roster, with a career-high of 851 receiving yards in a single season.

Thankfully, the 2024 NFL Draft boasts a deep pool of promising wide receiver prospects. With the No. 28 selection, Beane aims to acquire a game-changing receiver to bolster Josh Allen and the offense.

Despite the Bills’ fourth consecutive AFC East division-winning season, Von Miller and the team faced a tough loss in the Divisional Round to the eventual Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, with a close 27-24 defeat.

Looking ahead to the 2024 season, Von Miller seeks redemption after a challenging 2023 campaign. The two-time Super Bowl champion recorded zero sacks in 12 games, along with no forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, or pass breakups.

Miller did not start any regular-season games and tallied only three combined tackles throughout the year. His postseason performance mirrored the regular season, with mostly zeros on the stat sheet, concluding with just two combined tackles in two playoff games.

As the Bills aim to break through to Super Bowl success in 2024, they rely on the veteran presence of Von Miller to return to his superstar form. With a lack of pass-rushing depth, the future Hall of Famer’s resurgence is crucial for the Bills’ defensive success in the upcoming season.
