In 2017, Miller shared a similar post announcing he had been traded. Back then, the image was more believable as it appeared to be an ESPN graphic. Last year, the outside linebacker also did not specify which team he had been traded to, keeping the ruse alive for much longer.
But Miller wasn't the only one who wanted to fool a fan – or a thousand.
Emmanuel Sanders also shared through Instagram news that he had been traded to the Washington Redskins.
“Thank you Broncos nation for giving me so much love and support. I have decided to take my talents to Washington to join @jno24 in a quest to win Super Bowl 53. Washington we lit! I’m on the way.”
