Von Miller played the role of Santa Claus for the entire AFC West.
The Denver Broncos linebacker was in a giving mood recently and sent a bottle of wine and a note to every last player in the division, including practice squad players and those on injured reserve. If you’re keeping count, that’s almost 300 bottles of wine.
Here’s what Miller’s note said, via the Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala:
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!
— Von Miller
The wine, which was custom blended by a Boulder, Colo., native, is called The Setting, and the labels feature an orange outline of Miller’s signature eyeglasses. It looks like it’s going to be a very happy holiday in the AFC West.
