Von Miller had been in the headline all the offseason because of his renewal problem, and he got a contract containing at least $70 million finally.
Except Miller has made for all the headlines, he is equally fascinating off of it as well — which is something we learned on Tuesday. Miller is understood to spent a lot of time in the study of many kinds of literature about extinct animals in the past few months.
“I guess I’m just weird,” Miller says. “I don’t know why I like giant animals in New Zealand, it just interests me. But when you see pictures of this … you’ve got a 12-foot bird that looks like an ostrich or an emu and you’ve got these little humans and they are hunting down these birds, I thought it was just dope. We’ve come far since then, people don’t really even go out there and hunt like that. I think it’s dope to learn about humans, about ourselves and where we come from.”
It seems that Miller has got away from football and found his own new pursuit in this offseason as himself thinking.
