The Players' Tribune ran a story today with the simple title "Nerd." It's a wonderful look at the early football life of Super Bowl MVP and Texas Aggie Von Miller as told through a unique and refreshing outlet: his friends. Von, Tony, Damontre, and Cyrus all grew up around the same time in or near DeSoto, TX, and now all four are in the NFL. We find out several things you won't read about elsewhere, from Von's true level of nerdiness to the respect all four had for his parents rules.
Cyrus Gray / Denver Broncos:
