SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — On top of his game and now the world, Von Miller’s docket is quickly filling up.
A parade. Lots of parties. A princely payday.
“I was just talking to Coach Kubiak, I was asking if you could make the plane do backflips on the way home,” Miller said Monday after accepting the Super Bowl MVP trophy from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
“It’s definitely going to be a magical week for us. I am looking forward to spending time with my teammates going on tour.”
It should be a magical offseason for Miller, who led Denver’s dominating defense to a 24-10 clobbering of Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
Thanks to Miller, GM John Elway earned a third Lombardi Trophy for team owner Pat Bowlen to go with the two he won as his quarterback in the 1990s. Bowlen is battling Alzheimer’s and didn’t make the trip to Super Bowl 50.
