Denver Broncos coach John Fox has slammed Von Miller for his latest off-field problem after he was cited for a speeding offence.

Miller is currently serving a six-game suspension for a violation of the league's substance rules, and the latest incident is reported to have happened just one game into his suspension.

Fox said: "Obviously we're not happy about it. Everybody here has an individual responsibility, not only to themselves, but to this organization, to this football team, so it's something we're not pleased about. We'll leave it at that."

The newest addition to the long-list of offences that Miller is racking up comes after reports surfaced that he hadn't paid an outstanding speeding ticket from October of last year, however it has since emerged that particular fine has been settled.

People close to the 24-year old linebacker have told him to try and not draw attention to himself as he bids to remain out of the limelight following his suspension for a diluted urine sample during the off-season.

The youngster is heralded as one of the bright stars for the future in the NFL, although he must curb his off-field behaviour if he is to fulfil his potential.

The series of unsavoury incidents had even prompted talk on sports radio shows and social media of whether Miller should be traded - an outcome that fellow Broncos player Kevin Vickerson believes isn't at all necessary.

He said: "No, you don't trade Von Miller. (Heck) no. I'm just being real honest. The guy got suspended and some stuff happened, but you don't trade him. Come on."

The defensive line added: "He needs us just as much as we need him.

"He's not a bad guy. That's the perception he's getting, but he's not. He's not a problem in this locker room. If you know Von and you've met Von, you would love Von."
