I’m at the Oakland Raiders’ training site, but where is Pro Bowl tight end Zach Miller?
Oh, that’s right, he’s being wooed in Seattle by the deepest pockets in the NFL.
I was on my way to Napa when I received a phone call from a league source saying that Miller was visiting the Seattle Seahawks and they are bent on keeping him there.
It’s a stunning development. Miller was widely expected to soon re-sign with the Raiders. Oakland coach Hue Jackson hinted Sunday he expected Miller would be with the team soon and several of his teammates said the same thing.
It appeared that Miller was waiting for Oakland to clear enough cap room to give him a suitable deal after he unexpectedly wasn’t getting much interest on the open market.
Now, he has the interest. And now he’s in Paul Allen’s house.
That may not be a good sign for the Raiders. All indications are that the Seahawks plan on signing Miller.
The Raiders looked as if they were trying to free up cap space and then sign Miller, but now it looks like he won't make it back from Seattle. Miller is rated 10th with an ADP of the 11th round. TE is once again expected to be a deep position this year, and Miller would be a nice addition that late in the draft if you look to bolster other positions first.
