It’s worth mentioning that the Bears are scheduled to play the Dolphins this weekend, who have a left-footed punter in Matt Haack. Teams typically try out left-footed punters so that their returns get familiar with the different spin on the ball.
Miller, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Southern Utah back in 2014. He took part in rookie minicamps with the Colts and Raiders and worked out for a number of teams including the Texans, Rams, Buccaneers, Broncos, Packers, Browns, Bears, 49ers, Lions and Jaguars.
The 49ers elected to sign Miller to a future/reserve contract back in 2017, but unfortunately, cut him loose shortly after last year’s draft.
During his college career at Southern Utah, Miller totaled 7,055 punt yards on 164 attempts (43.02 YPA). He also kicked field goals for Southern Utah during his freshman year and was 12 of 17 and made 27 of 28 extra-point tries.
