As Von Miller competes for a second world championship this Sunday, a large portion of Broncos Country will be pulling for the Super Bowl 50 MVP to earn another title.
And though he's moved to a new team, that support has not gone unnoticed.
"It means everything, man," Miller said Monday ahead of Super Bowl LVI. "It'll always be love. I'll always have orange and blue in my blood. I'll always be a Coloradan. I spent 10-and-a-half years there, a third of my life. My son was born there. [I] did so much with the Denver Broncos. So many of my close brothers still play for the team and I watched these guys grow up and I watched these guys develop. I played with guys before them, spent eight years and nine years and seven years with all those other guys. I got to see Peyton Manning — and John Elway was my boss. Just so many great things about Denver, man."
Broncos fans will hope for a return to the postseason beginning next year, but through much of the postseason, the orange-and-blue faithful have cheered for the future Broncos Ring of Famer.
"To still have the support from the city is amazing," Miller said. "I didn't want to leave. It wasn't me that wanted to leave. I got traded. If it was up to me, I'd still be in Denver trying to figure it out. That's just how I am, that's how I'm built. It feels good for the city to understand that and for them to know that this wasn't my choice.
"I always wanted to be a Denver Bronco forever, and I'll always be a Denver Bronco forever. I'm just here working in LA right now."
