Miller, who the Seahawks released last year with a "failed physical" designation, has not landed with another team since then.
Miller, who last saw NFL action in 2014 with the Seahawks, when he caught six passes fo 76 yards in three games, recorded 328 catches for 3,804 yards and 20 TDs over a 110-game span between 2007 and 2014. He was selected by the Raiders 38th overall in the 2007 NFL draft.
Miller caught eight passes for 78 yards and a pair of touchdowns on nine targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.
Although he actually trailed Kevin White for the team lead in targets, Miller finally came through with the breakout performance many were expecting prior to the season. It happened with Brian Hoyer under center, but while Hoyer's final statistics didn't look bad, he was unable to move the ball until Dallas had a three-score lead. Regardless of whether Jay Cutler (thumb) or Hoyer is the quarterback, Miller will be worth keeping a close eye on, as he was startable in most leagues last last December. While unlikely to be efficient, the Chicago passing attack does have some garbage-time potential.
The Seahawks released TE Zach Miller , Friday, saving $2.39 million toward the salary cap.
Miller spent four seasons with the Seahawks. Last season, after agreeing to a pay cut to remain with the team, Miller had six catches for 76 yards in three games.
Miller was released due to a "failed physical", according to the team.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that tight end Zach Miller should be ready in time for next season.
Speaking at the Indianapolis scouting combine, Carroll said that Miller is recovering well from the ankle injury that ended his 2014 season. Miller had surgery during the Seahawks' week four bye, but he wasn't able to recover in time to return to the team.
