  • Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has confessed he farts too much during team meetings.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller told The Denver Post's Nick Jhabvala on June 4 he farts too much during team meetings.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller says he farts too much. 

This was what Miller told The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala on June 4. He said he actually gets fined by the Broncos for passing too much gas during team meetings:

In a follow-up tweet, Jhabvala says the Broncos never implemented a fining system for farting. It was just a harmless prank among the players:

On May 29, Jhabvala reported Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips plans to use Miller as a strongside linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense.  

Phillips explained to The Denver Post how he'll use Miller this season:

"We're going to let him rush. 

"It's a position where, if a guy can rush, he can match up well. That's why we kept him there. You'd think he'd be a Will linebacker who rushes almost every play, but you can rush the Sam linebacker, too, so that's what we'll do."

Phillips also told ESPN's Jeff Legwold on June 1 he's excited about the prospect of having top-notch edge rushers in Miller, DeMarcus Ware and rookie Shane Ray in his rotation. 

"We'll do that," he told Legwold. "We'll put our best players on the field...get your best players out there, your best rushers out there in third-down situations."

Phillips said he and his staff will resort to 11-on-11 team drills as part of the Broncos' offseason workouts as they make the transition from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 scheme, per DenverBroncos.com associate editor Ben Swanson. 

Despite Denver already taking the necessary steps to make this transition, Phillips acknowledged to Swanson they are still a long way off:

"We don't have the pads on yet. We've got a long ways to go. We've gone one week, three practices, and those aren't even live. But I like the way they're working. I look at their movement skills. We're going to get them to give their great effort.

"That's a mark hopefully of our defense always, is we're going to have a lot of guys flying to the football. And those guys have bought in to that. They're really doing a good job. As big as they are you don't expect them to be down all over the field. We do. We expect that."

Phillips is happy to be with the Broncos. When the team hired him in January, he told ESPN he couldn't "think of a better situation you could be stepping into." 

He has reason to be happy: The Broncos are aiming to make the playoffs for the fifth straight season. They made it to Super Bowl XLVIII and had five players represent them in the 2015 Pro Bowl (Ware, T.J. Ward, Chris Harris, Jr. and Aqib Talib), per ESPN. 

In another development, Ware and Miller have been giving rookie left tackle Ty Sambrailo plenty of hard advice during organized team activities (OTAs), per Jhabvala. 

Ware told Jhabvala a no-holds-barred approach to Sambrailo will serve hiim well and the rest of the team:

"I have played for 11 years, and going back to some of my younger days, I try to tell him every single thing. If you overset, I'm going to tell you why. If you hit me with this arm, I will tell you what move I am going to do or I will tell you before the play, 'That's a run stance, that's a pass stance, stop giving it away.'

"Then he will change it up. I feel like if you can give that to those young guys it will help them, and it will make the team better."

On the other hand, Miller told The Denver Post that the team's mentoring process is a two-way one:

"Whenever I beat him, I tell him. I will go up to him and let him know what I was thinking, and try to figure out what he was thinking. If somebody beat me and they told me how they beat me, I would listen."
