Congressman reports ex-NFL fullback to Capitol Police after alleged ‘execution’ threat

May 19, 2023

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., has reported an ex-NFL fullback to Capitol Police after the former player allegedly threatened Swalwell in a Twitter direct message.

Swalwell shared a screenshot of what appeared to be a message from Bruce Miller, who spent five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, saying it was a "(threat) to execute me."

"Almost time !!! Would you rather Guantanamo or just execution," Miller allegedly wrote with laughing emojis. "f---in traitor."

"Who is this guy threatening to execute me? And how does he have so many followers?" Swalwell wrote.

"This guy" turned out to be the former pro football player, who appeared in 85 NFL games, 77 with the 49ers and eight with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020 before retiring.
