Default A Von Miller Christmas

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller went above and beyond this holiday season by gifting every single player in the AFC West — including practice squad players — a custom bottle of wine along with a heartfelt thank-you note.

The wine, called The Setting, features on the label an orange outline of eye-glasses, one of Miller’s go-to looks, along with his signature.

The thank-you note reads, as transcribed by The Denver Post:

Quote:
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
It’s a pretty classy move, to say the least, from Miller. Especially given his generosity and thoughtfulness amounted to giving out nearly 290 bottles.

Even better, it shows Miller in a far more favorable light than what we’ve seen out of him of late … to put it mildly.

A nice tax write-off.

There is no way we will pass a drug test after drinking the Von Roid Wine.

If I were one of the recipients, I would light the note on fire, and re-gift the wine.

Dang guys you guys are not only debbie downers but downright brutal to your enemies!

290 bottles? To befriend your enemies coming off a championship year is classy but an especially schrewd move by Von.

I'm not so sure I'd return it with a note saying up yours see you on the field! Imagine a pissed Von coming off the edge on Sunday?

I'd put it on Ebay, and use the money to buy Charger swag.
