ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Von Miller isn't looking back.

The second overall selection in the NFL draft said he has no regrets over staying in school, suing the NFL or missing out on some $50 million.

The Denver Broncos' new linebacker was expected to sign a four-year deal worth about $21 million on Wednesday as players, including in-limbo quarterback Kyle Orton, reported to Dove Valley for new coach John Fox's first training camp.

Miller would have been in line for about $70 million had the rookie salary structure not changed with the new labor deal, but the former Texas A&M pass-rusher figures he'll make it up down the line.

Last year's No. 2 pick, Detroit defensive standout Ndamukong Suh, signed a five-year deal worth $40 million guaranteed and as much as $68 million overall.
