Bye-Bye Roy MillerMarch 15th, 2013
The man Greg Schiano called the “custom-built” nose tackle for his defensive line is now playing for Jacksonville. Roy Miller has inked a two-year deal with the Jaguars, per Woody Cummings of TBO.com.
This was Schiano’s assessment of Miller in Week 17.
“He is a heck of a run stopper and plays the position, you know we call the tilt nose in our defense, he plays it very well. And he’s really custom-built to play it,” Schiano said yesterday. “I mean his traits really fit the position.”
What the hell are the Bucs are doing allowing key, young cogs in their defensive line walk away for miniscule cash?
The Miller move further fuels Joe’s take that Greg Schiano is driving the bus on some maneuvers.
Miller is replaceable, and he didn’t play most passing downs, but the guy was at least a solid defensive tackle last season. And, much like Michael Bennett, Miller was successful in Schiano’s system and had no off-field baggage. His loss is puzzling.
One must now put defensive tackle on the list of positions the Bucs could attack early on draft day.
