Broncos LB Von Miller made the media rounds on Wednesday, talking about his offseason and the glasses distribution event from his foundation, Von's Vision. He didn't mince words when it came to his opinion on Peyton Manning's worth to the Denver Broncos.
Miller told SiriusXM NFL Radio, "There are still so many things he can do for the Denver Broncos. We can win a Super Bowl with Peyton. I think that's the only thing that matters. To win a Super Bowl we need Peyton Manning and I think that he's going to be able to play at a high level. It's Peyton Manning. Whatever it is he needs to do, he's going to do it."
Last offseason Miller was recovering from a torn ACL. This offseason Miller has taken advantage of the extra time to try a variety of offseason workouts. And he didn't wait long into the offseason to get to work.
"Three days after the Super Bowl I started working out," Miller said during media availability during a Von's Vision event Wednesday. "It's something I wanted to do. I didn't want to take a break from football. I feel better at work. I feel better coming out to a facility and doing all that stuff and watching film."
Miller said on Wednesday that he feels 100 percent this offseason and he is in daily contact with fellow Broncos teammates.
"We've got group chats with all the guys on the football team. It's not one day goes where I don't talk to somebody from the linebacking group or the D-line group. We're excited about everything. I'm excited for the new coaches. I'm excited to get everybody back in there and get everybody going."
Earlier this year Miller's foundation, Von's Vision, provided eye exams to hundreds of local kids in need. On Wednesday close to 150 of those kids were given glasses at a pizza party at Sports Authority Field. Miller was there to celebrate with the kids and looked forward to the changes the glasses could have on these kids lives.

"I can definitely relate to times I forgot my glasses at home. Going to school it's just a different world," Miller said. "There's a lot of kids that didn't even know they had problems seeing. They just thought it was a normal day at school. So getting glasses on these kids faces, it helps change the whole environment of what school is supposed to be like."
