Broncos linebacker Von Miller is in the Christmas spirit, and now, so is the entire division.
Via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, Miller sent a bottle of wine and a thank you note to every player in the AFC West, including practice-squaders and those on injured reserve. That’s nearly 300 bottles of wine.
Included with each bottle was a note which read:
It is an honor and a privilege to take the field and compete with you twice a year. We are so fortunate to have this opportunity to fulfill our childhood dreams of playing in the NFL. The blood, sweat, aches and pains, and endless hours spent watching film are a testament to the love and dedication we have for this game. So take a moment, reflect on all your successes, and enjoy your accomplishment. Appreciate those who have helped you get this far, and start working towards your next childhood dream.
Thank you for helping to make our game great!
It’s quite the magnanimous gesture from Miller, the kind one can make after signing a $114.5 million contract. But regardless the price tag or his ability to pick it up, it was a nice touch or sportsmanship and generosity for the Super Bowl MVP.
