The first pick will be a 2022 second-round draft pick. The second pick is a 2022 third-round draft pick.

The Broncos are picking up nearly all of Miller’s remaining salary. They will absorb $9 million of his $9.7 million salary for the rest of the season.

The Rams are going on all with this move. The team, which is 7-1, added another stellar piece to their already-talented defensive unit.

Miller may take the starting defensive end role from A’Shawn Robinson in the Rams’ 3-4 defense. Miller may be the backup to Robinson until he finds a role on the unit.

And don’t forget Aaron Donald, the future Hall of Famer, who has won three straight Defensive Player of the Year awards, is coming up the middle.

The Broncos; however, are signaling a rebuild despite the 4-4 record.

First-year Broncos GM George Paton will continue to mold the roster and team into his vision.

The 2nd overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft has spent his entire career with the Broncos before this trade. He made 142 starts with the team.

This season, he made seven starts. He had 19 tackles, including seven tackles for a loss, and nine quarterback hits.

He also had 4.5 sacks.

In his career, he had 509 tackles, 142 tackles for a loss, and 225 quarterback hits. He has 110.5 sacks.

He also has 21 pass deflections.
