The Denver Broncos pass rusher was in Europe with OBJ when the receiver got the news of the trade in early March. Last week at the start of offseason workouts, NFL Network’s James Palmer asked Miller what he saw from Beckham in that moment.
“He was hurt. He was hurt initially,” Miller said. “He loved New York. He loved his teammates. He loved the team. Whenever you get hit with something like that, you’re going to be hurt. You’re going to feel some type of disappointment with that.
“But immediately after that, he was excited for his new opportunity. I think you saw all his all his (new) teammates on Twitter and Instagram, they love him as well. They’re excited to have him. The whole city of Cleveland is excited to have him. He’s the new LeBron [James] there, so he’s excited about that, and he’s going to be ready to go.”
I had a chance to catch up with one of the greats today. #broncos @vonmiller . What does he think about another new head coach? The Hall of Fame? How much longer will he play? Also, what was it like being in Paris with @OBJ when he found out he was traded to the #browns? pic.twitter.com/zoB3U58QBv

NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones has mentioned multiple times that Beckham found the trade from New York to be “bittersweet.” Giants running back Saquon Barkley similarly relayed OBJ’s immediate hurt feelings.
Maybe Cowherd was right?
