Roy Miller: Retiring from NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (suspension) announced his retirement from football via his personal Instagram account Monday.

Miller was already suspended for the first six games of the season after being charged with domestic battery in November of 2017. Though now retired, the 30-year-old made it seem as if he could return to the league once his legal issues are over. Regardless, Miller can hang his hat on a respectable career as a run-stopping defensive tackle that tallied 252 tackles and eight sacks in 119 career games (84 starts).

Roy Miller: Suspended six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has been suspended for the first six weeks of the 2018 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

At this point it's unclear why Miller has been suspended or if he'll appeal. The free agent defensive lineman played with the Chiefs for seven games last season, recording six tackles and a pass defensed. He may have some trouble signing with a team for camp now that he's ineligible to play for a portion of the season, but he could provide fresh legs for a club later in the year should injuries strike.

Chiefs' Roy Miller: Lands in KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller signed a contract with the Chiefs on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Miller provides the Chiefs with insurance along the defensive line in case Chris Jones (knee) ultimately lands on the regular season PUP list. Though he missed 10 games to an Achilles injury in 2016, Miller should now be good to go and will look to improve upon his career-high sack (four) and TFL (six) totals from 2015.

Jaguars DL Roy Miller set for offseason surgery
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it.

"The doctor is going in there to take a look at everything and hopefully we'll go with the quick route," Miller said. "If they can trim it, I'll be back on my feet the next day. If not, you have to wait for it to stitch together and then you take precautionary steps and that's maybe a couple of months."

Miller sat out the final two games of the season before opting for surgery. He signed a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension five days after the injury. His season ends with 30 tackles and one sack.
