Report: Von Miller, urine collector teamed up to cheat NFL system

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller tried to cheat the NFL's drug-testing program with the help of the person assigned to collect his urine sample, according to an ESPN report.

Miller, who was second in the league with 18 1/2 sacks last season, had been suspended for the first six games -- inexplicably, two more games than the typical NFL penalty for that transgression.

According to the report, Miller's representatives and the players union were prepared to fight his initial four-game suspension but backed off when they became aware Miller and the collector worked together to help the player avoid a failed choice.

Sources told ESPN the Miami-based collector was "star-struck."

The scheme was uncovered when a second collector learned Miller was not in the city where his collection was to have taken place.
