Miller wants to play 85-to-90 percent of Denver's defensive snaps, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller mentioned 20 sacks as a reasonable goal earlier this offseason, also noting that he eventually hopes to pass Bruce Smith for the all-time record (200). Both goals are realistic but far from likely, with Miller averaging 12.3 sacks and 15.0 games through the first eight seasons of his NFL career. He handled an 89.9 percent snap share back in 2012 when he had a career-high 18.5 sacks, but he's landed between 76 and 86 percent in each subsequent season (accounting for active games only). Of course, extra snaps won't be as valuable to his sack quest if Denver's opponents frequently are nursing leads that allow them to drain clock with run plays.

Miller's goals include 20 sacks in 2019 and, eventually, the all-time sack record, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

On one hand, what is Miller supposed to say, that he wants to take it easy this year? Perhaps the more interesting element of the story is head coach Vic Fangio's response -- saying that Miller can reach his goals if he does the little things right in preparation. That can be read as either tempering expectations or maybe even a shot at Miller or the former coaching staff. Either way, given his influence on the likes of Khalil Mack and Aldon Smith in his previous stops, it will be interesting to see how Fangio tries to get the most out of Miller and his counterpart Bradley Chubb in 2019.

Miller is up to 245 pounds this offseason after playing between 236 and 238 in 2018, Troy Renck of Denver7 ABC reports. "It's not really about get off, speed, getting hurt, agility or movement. It's when you get locked up with an offensive lineman and what you are able to do with that," Miller said. "At 245 you can go a little further with that. It's not a lot, but I need that 10 pounds."

EDGE Analysis

Miller weighed 246 pounds at the 2011 combine and has been listed at 250 for most of his career. It's a bit surprising to hear how light he was last season while piling up 48 tackles (29 solo), 14.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and an interception in 16 games. Regardless of his weight, Millers faces a soft transition under new coach Vic Fangio, who has an impressive history of success as a defensive coordinator using a 3-4 scheme. The 30-year-old pass rusher spent the past four seasons in a 3-4 defense, landing between 10.0 and 14.5 sacks each year, though his tackle numbers have been inconsistent. Miller plans to keep his weight between 245 and 248 pounds.

Miller produced 48 tackles, 14.5 sacks, three pass breakups, one interception, four forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries over 16 games in 2018.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the underwhelming collective performance of the Broncos defense, Miller had himself another strong season en route to Pro-Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors -- which marks the seventh time in eight career seasons in which Miller has been both nominated to the Pro Bowl and made either first- or second-team All-Pro. Miller now begins his foray into his 30s in 2019, but there's no reason to think he's slowing down anytime soon. In fact, there's optimism for Miller to build upon his 2018 campaign with a new head coach in town, Vic Fangio, who coordinated the league's top scoring defense with Chicago this past season.

Miller recorded two solo tackles and a sack in Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Miller now has a sack in eight of his last nine games and continues to demonstrate why he's one of the elite defensive players in the game. The 29-year-old's 14 total sacks on the year are the most he's had since 2014. He still has an outside shot at his career-high of 18 and will seek to keep chipping away at the mark Week 16 at Oakland.

Miller recorded three tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Miller has recorded at least a half sack in seven-straight games, and he has 12.5 on the season. He's one of the best defensive players in the NFL and has showcased his abilities on a weekly basis. He'll look to continue his strong campaign into Week 14, when Denver faces off against San Francisco.

Miller recorded a sack and an interception in Sunday's 23-22 win against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Miller's only tackle was a big one, as he was able to bring down Philip Rivers for his 10th sack of the year. Miller also picked off Rivers in the third quarter and returned it for 42 yards, which ultimately led to a three-yard touchdown run by Royce Freeman. The 29-year-old has already tied his sack total from 2017, as he continues to prove he's one of the best pass rushers in the game.

Miller (knee) does not expect to wear a knee brace Week 11, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller seems to have made good use of Denver's bye week, and fully recovered from a lingering knee injury sustained during a Week 8 loss to the Chiefs. The star linebacker has recorded nine sacks this season, and will look to build upon that total during Sunday's tilt against the Chargers.

Miller recorded two tackles and one sack during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Miller entered the game with concern surrounding the status of his knee that was contained by a brace during Friday's practice, but the linebacker didn't sustain any setbacks on the field and he even said his knee felt better as the game went on, according to Troy Renck of Denver 7 News. With nine sacks through the first nine games of the season, Miller is entering the Texans' Week 10 bye as one of the most productive pass rushers leaguewide.

Miller (knee) was a full participantin Friday's practice and has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans, Troy E. Renck of thedenverchannel.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller was spotted wearing a knee brace during Friday's practice, but does not appear in any danger of sitting out Week 9. The star linebacker has started 72 consecutive games since suffering a torn ACL in 2013, and will pair up with rookie Bradley Chubb to attempt to pressure Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson on Sunday. Miller has accumulated eight sacks this season, tied for second in the league.
