Von Miller is one of the biggest stars the NFL has to offer, but he still took the time to be at the Broncos ceremony that honors the team’s employees on Thursday. It may not seem significant, but according to The Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala, he’s the only player she’s seen do so.

Miller spoke at the podium of the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse and thanked over 200 employees from Mile High Stadium and the team’s practice facility in Englewood for their work.

We couldn’t do what we do if it weren’t for you, Miller told the audience of employees. After thanking them collectively, Miller signed raffle items. This all came two hours after the team had practiced.
Fitzpatrick has spent 12 seasons in the league and has yet to play in a postseason game. He was a seventh-round pick of the Rams in the 2005 NFL draft and started three games for Saint Louis as a rookie, going 0-3 in the process. He was traded to Cincinnati after two years, where he backed up Carson Palmer.
A solid, if unspectacular, performance in a dozen starts in Palmer’s absence led him to Buffalo, where his ability to win six games a year led the Bills to gift him a six-year, $60 million contract extension in 2011. He was released fewer than 18 months later.
Stops in Tennessee and Houston followed with moderate success, but it wasn’t until he landed in New York before he finally led a team to a winning record. He pushed the Jets to the precipice of the playoffs, but a three-interception performance in Week 17 kept the franchise from returning to the postseason.
