Von Miller's offseason goal? To make life even harder for the NFL's quarterbacks. – Mile High Report (blog)
Yesterday, Miller convened his 2nd annual Pass Rush Summit at Big Cedar Lodge near Branson, Missouri. And he brought in some seriously talented instructors: NFL Hall of Fame pass rushers Bruce Smith and Warren Sapp. Smith, if you didn’t know, holds the all-time record for career sacks with a beautifully even 200.0.
In addition to learning from the pair of greats himself, Miller joined them in passing along pass rush knowledge and techniques to the various active players who attended. The guest list extended from established sack artists like Khalil Mack and Vic Beasley to some of the NFL’s newest pass rushers, including Broncos rookie Bradley Chubb and Saints rookie Marcus Davenport.

There are probably more than a few quarterbacks who wish this event wasn’t a thing, because the knowledge shared by players of Smith, Sapp, and Miller’s caliber is going to contribute to many a quarterback’s bruise count for years to come.
There was quite a bit more on the schedule
