ENGLEWOOD – For Von Miller, Brock Osweiler’s unlikely return to the Broncos brings back sweet memories.

Memories from the 2015 season, when the Broncos ruled the NFL.

Osweiler served as the Broncos' relief pitcher/quarterback, stepping in for Peyton Manning, who was struggling, and failing, to defeat the aging process. Osweiler won five of seven starts.

Miller forgives Osweiler for departing the Broncos for more money and a fresh opportunity in Houston.

“To have him back, to have his energy back,” Miller said. “We won a lot of games because of Brock. Some of the things that Brock did for his team were unbelievable. To have that energy back on the football field and back in the locker room, it’s kind of feels like 2015 and we did a lot of great stuff in 2015.”

When Osweiler departed, Miller was disappointed, largely because he expected No. 17 to craft a long and happy career with the Texans.

“When he left, I thought he was going to have a phenomenal year and phenomenal career there, but it didn’t work out like that,” Miller said.

That’s an understatement. Osweiler lost his starting job in Houston and was shipped in the offseason to the lowly Cleveland Browns.

The Browns cut Osweiler on Friday, leading to his unlikely return to Denver.
