Hardo move? Insult? Compliment? I have no clue this may very well be the strangest football story of the year aside from Mike Zimmer almost scratching his eye to blindness. Miller literally sent a bottle of wine to everyone on the 53-man roster, practice squad, injured reserve etc. That is a lot of wine. Here is the note that came with the bottle plated with Miller’s signature glasses:
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.
This is the same Von Miller who was vying to Jon Elway to sign the maniacal Manziel- they even roomed together too. Could this be a sadistic ploy or a genuine gesture? I think its both. Von Miller is a genuine sadistic dude with a good heart apparently. Imagine being defensive tackle David King on the Kansas City Chiefs Practice Squad and you come home from getting your head bashed in on the Scout Team to find that note and a bottle of wine from Von Miller. Do you take it serious? I personally wouldn’t touch it out of conspiratorial anxiety. It is poisonous wine.
