O’Neill mentions that Miller would have made a base salary of $6 million for the 2014 season, but agreed to reduce that figure to $3 million and include incentives that could push his compensation up to $4 million.
Miller would have counted $7 million against the salary cap, so it’s really not surprising in the least that the Seahawks would rework his contract. His name came up as a potential cap casualty a few weeks ago.
Miller, 28, totaled 33 receptions for 387 yards receiving and five touchdowns over the course 14 games. Surprisingly enough, Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 tight end in the league last year.
