Roger Goodell contemplates adding Von Miller to Commissioner Exempt list

Commissioner Goodell has stated that there were discussions about placing Von Miller on the Commissioner Exempt list following his November arrest for assault. However, the decision was made not to take any action at the time due to the limited information available. Goodell mentioned that he has not received any recent updates on the case involving Miller.

Miller is currently facing a third-degree felony charge for assaulting a pregnant woman after an incident with his girlfriend while he was on a bye week in Dallas. Despite the allegations, Miller’s girlfriend later recanted her statement, and Miller maintains his innocence. He has not been formally charged with any crime.

According to the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy, a player can be placed on the Commissioner Exempt list if they are formally charged with a felony offense or a crime of violence. Recently, Miller accepted a pay cut to remain with the Bills, reducing his 2024 compensation from $17.5 million to $8.855 million. With an incentive package in place, his total payout could reach $20 million.

Turning 35 this week, Miller played limited games last season, appearing in 12 with no starts and recording three tackles with no sacks. This marked the first season in his career without a sack, despite his impressive total of 123.5 career sacks.
