Pat Bowlen, the owner of the Denver Broncos, established the “Ring of Fame” in 1984 with the intention of paying tribute to past players and administrators of the franchise who had made major contributions throughout its existence.
Right off the bat, Bowlen set the bar high, requiring candidates to have either been retired for at least five years or to have played for the Broncos for a minimum of four years.
There are presently 34 individuals honored within the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame. At INVESCO Field at Mile High, the Ring of Fame can be found exhibited on the fifth level of the stadium’s exterior.
Is Von Miller on the ring of Fame?
The answer is NOT YET. Von Miller is still widely considered to be the best defensive player the Broncos have ever had. When he finally hangs up his spikes, he’ll be inducted into both the Ring of Fame and the Hall of Fame.
Despite the fact that he signed a free agent contract with the Bills, the Broncos still consider him a member of their family in a variety of ways.
Miller’s performance at Super Bowl 50 earned him the Most Valuable Player award and expanded his fame outside the realm of football.
