ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Von Miller Meets America tour just keeps on rolling.
The Denver Broncos linebacker is one of the team’s free spirits, a gifted player who has tried to grow into the role of team leader and mega-watt star.
And since Miller roared through the Broncos’ AFC Championship Game win over the New England Patriots with 2.5 sacks and an interception and followed that with the biggest of big-stage efforts with 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in the Broncos’ Super Bowl win over the Carolina Panthers, Miller has certainly been an A-list guest.
So, add Monday’s Grammy Awards to the list. Miller and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who was named the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year last week for his off-the-field work, will take the stage in the Staples Center on Monday night to introduce a performance by Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt.
Miller, who was Super Bowl 50’s MVP, has been the sought-after guest this past week with appearances on “Ellen" and “Today" among his many stops. In his appearance on “Ellen,’’ Miller said he didn’t believe Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning would retire and, on the doorstep of free agency, Miller wanted to “stay with the Broncos for 15 to 20 years," but that “money talks, right?"
