Von Miller, plaintiff in NFL suit, to attend draft
All-American linebacker Von Miller will attend the NFL draft even though he's a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the league to stop the lockout.
The Texas A&M player says Thursday he will be at Radio City Music Hall and is looking forward to being a part of the festivities. He also is part of the 10-player antitrust suit filed against the NFL on March 11 in a Minnesota court. Miller is the only collegian among the plaintiffs, who also include Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.
Miller's agent, Joby Branion, works for Athletes First, a representation company in Irvine, Calif., where one of the agents is Andrew Kessler, the son of Jeffrey Kessler. The elder Kessler has been an outside counsel for the NFL Players Association for years.
