Von Miller spends his fall Saturdays wrecking offensive game plans and creating nightmares for opposing quarterbacks.
The former Texas A&M defensive end/linebacker has a soft spot to him, though, as evidenced on Thursday at the Denver Broncos’ employee recognition day.
Miller, who helped lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl title two seasons ago, surprised the crowd by appearing and thanking them.

According to the Denver Post, Miller is the first player to ever appear at the event, but it is not the first time that he has shown his appreciation. He, along with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, paid for more than 100 employees to enjoy a two-night stay at a upscale resort last year.
Miller was a two-time first team All-American during his playing days in College Station, and won the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker in 2010. He was drafted by the Broncos with the second overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
