Roger Goodell contemplates adding Von Miller to Commissioner Exempt list

NFL Commissioner Goodell Discusses Consideration of Placing Von Miller on Commissioner Exempt List Following November Arrest

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has shared that there was consideration of placing Von Miller on the Commissioner Exempt list following his November arrest for assault. However, the decision was made not to take action based on the information available at the time. Goodell mentioned that he has not received any recent updates on the case involving Miller.

Despite 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, Miller’s girlfriend later recanted her statement, and Miller maintains his innocence. He has not been formally charged with any crime.

According to the 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. However, with an incentive package in place, Miller recently accepted a pay cut to remain with the Bills, reducing his 2024 compensation from $17.5 million to $8.855 million. With this pay cut, 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.
