New Broncos G.M. George Paton may be facing an immediate challenge.
According to 9News.com, linebacker Von Miller is “under criminal investigation” by the Parker, Colorado police department.
The department confirmed to 9News.com the existence of the investigation, but provided no details.
“We’re not commenting on nature of the allegations,” a spokesperson told 9News.com. “We haven’t completed the investigation.”
Miller, like all players, is subject to the Personal Conduct Policy for any off-field misconduct. Depending on the severity of the allegations, Miller could be placed on paid leave, at the appropriate time.
