Von Miller began the 2021 NFL season with the Denver Broncos and ended it as a part of the Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl LVI-winning roster. The 32-year-old pass rusher played a key part in the 23-20 victory, recording two sacks and a pair of tackles.

Once the celebration of winning the Super Bowl wears off, Miller must deal with the reality of being a free agent this offseason. He finished the 2021 regular season with 50 combined tackles, 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 15 total games, so there likely won't be a shortage of suitors for his service.

Here's a look at the three most likely free agent destinations for Miller this offseason.

Von Miller 2022 Destinations

1. Denver Broncos

When the Broncos traded Miller back in November, it was seen as a "win-win" deal because it offered the veteran a chance to compete for a Super Bowl while Denver received draft capital. Now that he's won a championship (again), it'd make sense for him to return to the organization where his career started. Miller has made it clear that he never wanted to leave Denver and that playing for the Rams was just another job. People are expecting the Broncos to compete next season and bringing back Miller would not only mark the return of a locker room leader, but it'd also bolster a roster that ranked second-best in defensive scoring in 2021.

2. Los Angeles Rams

Trading for Miller clearly paid off for the Rams, so it only makes sense that they'd try to bring him back. He mixed well with the rest of the team and stepped up when the playoffs arrived, recording 14 tackles, 4.0 sacks and a forced fumble across the four-game run. It might have to be more of a team-friendly deal since the Rams do have other offseason needs to take care of, but the allure of another potential championship run might be enough to convince Miller to take a pay cut. FanDuel Sportsbook currently has the Rams as having +1200 odds (T-No. 3) to win Super Bowl LVII and Miller can help them make that a reality.

3. Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers have a bright, young roster, however, their defense was seriously lacking in 2021. They finished the year with just 35 total sacks (T-No. 20) and will be looking to improve the pass-rush this offseason. Miller can definitely assist with that, proven by his 115.5 career sacks. Joining the Chargers would also allow Miller to stay in Los Angeles without having to uproot his life again. The organization is a solid defense away from being one of the better teams in the NFL and if Miller believes that he can help them go on a Super Bowl run, it's an option worth exploring for both sides.
