The Jaguars have released defensive tackle Roy Miller.

Miller, 29, played the last four seasons in Jacksonville after playing his first four seasons with Tampa Bay. He was a starter when healthy for the Jaguars but was limited to six games last season after tearing his Achilles tendon in October.

He was due to make around $3.6 million in 2017 if the Jaguars had kept him.

A third-round pick of the Bucs in 2009, Miller has started 83 of 112 career games.

    Players need a new CBA.

    3.6 per seems cheap for Miller. He can definitely clog up the interior.

    Papa Tom is definitely cleaning house though. He’s swapping a lot of the older players out for new vets. Maybe trying to wash off the stink of the previous staff.

    Why? Due to Roy being cut because the Jags don’t believe he is worth $3.6mil this season?
    Miller has made:
    $2.52mil rookie contract with the Bucs
    $4.4mil in 2013&2014.
    approx $7mil in 2015&2016.
    So that is $14mil for about 8 years of professional work thus far.

    Bring him back home to Tampa for cheap. We love rotation on or d line

    Howie, this is NOT a way to replace bennie Logan. Please build through the draft!

    No, the players either need to read their contracts before they sign or get their agents to negotiate better contracts in the first place.

    Anyone stupid enough to play football without guaranteed contracts gets what they deserve.

    If the injury is behind him the Dolphins should sign him for about a third of what Poe is going to get. The Colts are desperate and will overpay, so doubt he leaves Indy. A 2 year contract around 5.5m is fair. He is a decent run stuffer and can be a rotation guy.

    Didn’t Roy Miller used to be with the CIA/NSA? Love him in Knights and Day haha. Good luck buddy

    Must be getting Poe. Miller was the locker room tough guy who everyone respected. Prolly pissed off TC and wanted to gravy train $$$ for no return. Tom will literally street Tom Brady if he doesn’t buy in….
