    You re-sign Von and probably snag a bargain type edge in FA while loading up in the draft.

      3. EDGE VON MILLER, LOS ANGELES RAMS


      The projection here is driven by something we’ve seen across almost a dozen recent trades — players signing strong contracts after being acquired via an expensive draft pick trade. Miller may not be what he was at his peak, but he’s not too far off. His 90.4 overall grade in the regular season ranked fourth among edge defenders.

      The Rams sent the Broncos second- and third-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft for half a season of Miller’s services, but there was more to it than that. Denver agreed to retain around $9 million in salary to facilitate the deal, and this boosted the required draft capital return as a result. Nevertheless, the Rams gave up a lot to add another future Hall-of-Famer to their defensive line and may be inclined to do what it takes to keep them together for a few more years.

      Strengths:
      – Elite athlete
      – Variety of ways to win as a pass-rusher
      – Disciplined run defender

      Weaknesses:
      – Recent injury history
      – Age

      Scheme Fit/Role:
      THREE-DOWN EDGE: Miller has played just four snaps with his hand in the dirt since 2018, likely limiting the list of prospective teams to defenses that would allow him to rush out wide from a two-point stance. The Los Angeles Rams are the leaders in the clubhouse to extend him after the trade, but a cross-city move to the Chargers to join forces with Brandon Staley and Joey Bosa is another situation to monitor.

      Recent Injury History:
      The veteran edge dislocated a peroneal tendon in his ankle last September that kept him off the field for the 2020 NFL season. He missed some time with an ankle injury this season but has looked healthy for the most part in his 2021 return.

      Contract Projection: Two years, $34 million ($17M per year, $25.25 million total guaranteed)

            Because that would be too much
