Denver Broncos All-Pro linebacker Von Miller's rehab is going well. Instead of relaxing during the time off before training camp kicks off, Miller is continuing to work hard on his rehab. Miller says he's doing whatever it takes to get himself ready for week one of the NFL season.

"I’m rehabbing and trying to get my knee back right so I can be ready for the season," Miller said. "I’m definitely working towards that and I got a lot of great guys behind me that are helping me work and helping me grind."

It appears after that Miller has screwed his head on straight after a 2013 season that featured him missing the first six with due to a suspension, a weight gain and an ACL injury that made him miss the postseason.

Miller isn't upset that he has to work while most of his teammates are out vacationing. Miller who has hired himself a chef who is going to help him out with nutrition, and continues to work out everyday is a whole different perspective on this years offseason.

"You’ve got a whole new look on what it means to play in the National Football League and what football really means to me," Miller said. "I can play football 24/7 every day out of the year. This is my dream and I’m living the dream.

It appears that Millers hard work is paying off. Just months after undergoing surgery for his ACL, Miller was working out near full speed at OTA's/Minicamp practices per reports, he has lost 20 pounds, and the Broncos picked up Millers Fifth-Year option.

There's a lot to be excited about in 2014, but a healthy, leaner, mature Von Miller could be what the Broncos need to get over the hump and hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
