Von Miller is one of only a handful of Denver Broncos players that can confidently say that he has lived up to his end of the bargain in 2017. Regardless, the five-time All-Pro outside linebacker still hears from frustrated fans on his social media accounts on a regular basis.
“I get it every day on Twitter and on my Instagram in my DMs [direct messages],” Miller said after practice on Thursday. “I get it every day.”
Miller, who is one sack away from posting his sixth career double-digit sack season, went on to say that while he doesn’t respond to many social media inquires, he does see every last one of them.
“I feel like once they [fans] figure out that I do read my DMs and my posts, it will flood,” Miller said with a laugh. “I do check all my messages. I might not respond, but I see everything. I feel like that’s the least I can do. Somebody is writing me a message – some messages don’t mean anything, but sometimes you get a message that you can’t help but to take in and to take it to heart.”
Needless to say, Miller’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are going to be flooded with messages after fans hear about this.
