Von Miller gives every player in AFC West a bottle of wine, thank-you note

Friday December 2nd, 2016

Von Miller is clearly feeling the holiday spirit.

The Denver Broncos linebacker and Super Bowl 50 MVP gave every player in the AFC West a bottle of custom wine and a thank-you note this week, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post.

Miller even sent the gifts to practice-squad players and those on injured reserve.

The wine label sports Miller's signature and an outline of his trademark eye-glasses. The note features a picture of Miller and the following message:

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

There are nearly 300 players across the division, so that's a lot of wine. Miller signed the richest deal ever given to a defensive player back in July, though, so he probably doesn't mind picking up the tab.
