Update: It's official. The Jaguars have re-signed Roy Miller to a long term extension. It is a four-year deal worth just a little more than $16 million, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press. It's a smart move by the Jaguars signing another guy who started on a "prove it" deal and someone who the locker room loves, as you can see in this video.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are close to re-signing veteran nose tackle Roy Miller, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. Miller is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he has expressed a desire to finish out his career with the Jaguars.
Miller was originally signed on a two-year deal in the 2013 offseason, as the team needed someone to play the nose tackle position in the Jaguars defensive scheme. Jaguars defensive line coach Todd Wash was familiar with Miller from their time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and knew he could fill the role for the team.
Miller spent much of last season playing with one arm, as he dealt with a shoulder injury he suffered early in the year. This season, fully healthy, it's clear Miller has been a force on a talented Jaguars defensive line and locking him up going forward makes a ton of sense.
