Von Miller made history this week, and it had absolutely nothing to do with his play on the field. For the first time ever, a Broncos player asked to attend the team’s annual service recognition day, which is held each year to honor the organization’s employees – the ones who don’t suit up on Sundays.
It had never happened in 18 years until Miller bucked the trend Thursday night. And it was a complete surprise. He took the podium to thank the 200-plus employees – grounds crew members, equipment managers, chefs – for their hard work and dedication to the Broncos.
