Former Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller announced he has accepted an invitation to attend the NFL Draft on April 28 — just three weeks after he faces the NFL in court as a plaintiff in the player’s lawsuit against the lockout.Yes, the now famous case known as “Brady v. NFL” is actually “Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Vincent Jackson, Ben Leber, Logan Mankins, Peyton Manning, Von Miller, Brian Robison, Osi Umenyiora, and Mike Vrabel, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly situated.”
Since this is a class action lawsuit, each player was chosen based on their particular contract circumstance (free agent, unrestricted free agent, signed, franchise tagged, etc.) in order to cover every possible scenario a player might find himself in. Miller, who was not a member of the union yet, was asked by the Players Association to represent draft eligible college prospects.
Miller plans to be in the court room when the case gets its hearing on April 6 and he also plans to be in Radio City Music Hall when the commissioner Roger Goodell (hopefully) calls his name somewhere near the top of the first round, leading to the traditional handshake and pose with the jersey that Miller says is a lifelong personal dream.
