Roy Miller Wants To Stay In Tampa BayFebruary 22nd, 2013
Joe knows many Bucs fans aren’t enamoured with defensive tackle Roy Miller. He doesn’t rack up that many tackles and he doesn’t have a great quarterback-sack tally.
But if you talk to a Bucs coach or a Bucs suit, they rave about Miller nearly as much as Joe does Rachel Watson. Even Gerald McCoy has gone on record as saying he wouldn’t be the player he is without Miller taking on two blockers (or three) each play to help set GMC loose.
Miller, a free agent, has Twittered from time to time of late that he wants to stay with the Bucs. Part of that reason is he and GMC are best of friends.
(A Longhorn and a Sooner, pals?)
Last night Miller put out yet another Twitter message that he wants to be playing for the Bucs in 2013, and beyond.
@THE_ROY_V: Me and @Geraldini93 putting some hard work he never stops working in don’t tell him but I hope we r side by side next yr n pewter/red #bucs
Early this morning, Miller put out another Twitter post that, while he wants to stay with the Bucs, he is prepared to look elsewhere if not wanted.
@THE_ROY_V: Being said I’m not talking anymore about this contract stuff Mark & Coach all are great people I respect every and all decisions they will
Joe cannot imagine Miller leaving town. He’s not an expensive hire, and again, if the Bucs — suits and coaches — love him so much, why not bring him back? All Joe ever hears from Bucs people is that Miller “does exactly what we want him to do.” That’s high praise.
Joe’s pretty confident that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik will chat with Miller’s agent while in Indianapolis and perhaps a move to sign him will happen in the coming weeks before the free agency bell rings March 12.
