Von Miller says the Tom Brady interception ball he kept ‘feels a little flat’

Deflategate may be over a year old now, but that won’t stop Von Miller from poking a little fun at it.

The Broncos’ five-year veteran linebacker kept the ball that he intercepted from Tom Brady at the beginning of the second quarter of the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. He then subsequently recorded a video back in the locker room with the interception ball and gave a little reference towards the scandal that cost the Patriots their 2016 first round draft pick.

“Man, this ball feels a little flat to me.’’ Miller said in the video.

Miller was the driving force for the Broncos defense Sunday with five tackles and was involved with three Tom Brady sacks to go along with the pick en route to the 20-18 Denver victory.
