Roy Miller, Bucs Break Off Contract Talks
Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times reports that contract talks between Miller and the Buccaneers found the teams sufficiently far apart that they have decided to table further conversations. That means Miller will become a free agent on March 12 and his agents thoughts on that dont make it seem like Miller considers a return to the Bucs to be in the cards.
Roy is excited to see whats out there for him in free agency, said his agent, Mike McCartney. He has a lot to offer after an excellent season, helping a team that was last against the run (in 2011) go to No. 1 against the run last season.
Gerald McCoy gave Millers ability to occupy blockers and space in the middle of the defensive line a lot of credit for helping him make the Pro Bowl, but Millers a two-down player and theres going to be a limit to how much a team will spend on such a player.
