Miller Suspended For Substance Violation


This is a bit of a minor note, but Rams WR Nick Miller has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Miller played the final six games for the Rams last season and his only real impact was a long punt return against the Cardinals in his first game.

I don’t want to say Miller had no chance of making the team next season, but I’d say it’s a virtual certainty that he won’t be with the team now. I have nothing against Miller, and in fact I liked him as a returner. I think there’s a place for him in the NFL as a special teamer, but unfortunately this suspension will probably hurt his chances of catching on with another team. I have no idea what he tested positive for, but I don’t think it really matters at this point. Good luck in your future endeavors, Mr. Miller.
