AP Source: Von Miller Tried To Manipulate Drug Testing

A person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Sunday that Denver’s All-Pro linebacker tried to avoid a positive test under the league’s substance-abuse policy. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced the details of Miller’s violation. The manipulation attempt was first reported by ESPN.

Miller’s six-game suspension was a compromise among the NFL, the players union and Miller’s representatives; the league wanted a longer penalty for the third-year player. When his ban was announced last month, Miller said in a statement, “although my suspension doesn’t result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules.”
