The fine Denver Broncos Von Miller paid last week for the sack dance he performed during Week 3 win against the Detroit Lions was enough to persuade him not to do it again — at least not during the game — in Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Vikings.
The outside linebacker was fined $11,567 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct for his version of Comedy Central's Key & Peele skit, McCringleberry's Excessive Celebration (see above)
On Sunday as Miller ran out of the tunnel for the start of the game, Miller sent a three-pump message to the league, assuming it wasn't recorded for the league to see, the Denver Post reported.
After a sack in the second quarter, Miller assumed his thrusting stance and was about to go through the motions, but managed to exercise some self-control.
"Them pumps are expensive," he told the Denver Post. "I'm saving that for a big-time sack. I'm only going to get more sacks. If I keep pumping, it'll get out of control."
According to Pro Football Focus, via Rotoworld, the Broncos linebackers only missed 7.1 percent of tackle attempts last season.
