ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Von Miller has a new nickname and a new shoe just in time for the playoffs.
The Texas A&M alum, who topped his superb Rookie of the Year season with a team-record 18 1/2 sacks in his second year with the Denver Broncos, wanted to fly to Arlington, Texas, to watch his Aggies play in the Cotton Bowl.
Trouble is, coach John Fox scheduled a team lift last Saturday to keep players from jetting off for the weekend. So, Miller had to watch on TV as Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, known as ``Johnny Football,'' guided the Aggies past Oklahoma 41-13 Friday night.
The next morning, Fox dubbed his premiere pass-rusher ``Vonny Football.''
Miller likes the nickname and joked he'll call his new custom-made Adidas shoe the same thing.
