The Browns have been looking to add pass rushers in the offseason to accompany Myles Garrett along the defensive line.
On Tuesday morning, they acquired Chase Winovich in a trade with the New England Patriots, and reportedly they’re in the mix to potentially add another.
According to Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson, the Browns are in the mix to sign free agent pass rusher Von Miller. The Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams are also among the teams interested in Miller.
Miller played under Browns’ defensive coordinator Joe Woods when Woods was the defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos in 2017 and 2018. There is also a connection with Browns’ defensive end Myles Garrett as the two both attended Texas A&M.
Miller spent the 2021 season with the Denver Broncos and the Rams, who acquired the 32-year-old defensive end in a midseason trade en route to winning the Super Bowl. In 15 games, Miller had 50 total tackles and 9.5 sacks and added four sacks in the postseason including two in the Super Bowl against Cincinnati.
In ten seasons, Miller has 115 career sacks, is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and a three-time First-Team All-Pro, and won MVP honors in Super Bowl 50 when he recorded 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in the Broncos victory over the Carolina Panthers.
The future Hall of Famer was hinting at a possible reunion with Denver last week on social media but Denver has added former Cowboys defensive end, Randy Gregory, in free agency and has some young players such as Bradley Chubb and Malik Reed on the roster at the position.
Rumors were swirling on Tuesday after Gregory bolted Dallas for Denver that Dallas was recruiting Miller, who was born and raised in Texas and still owns a home in the state.
Whether or not the Browns can lure Von Miller away from his home state team will be determined over the next several days.
