Watch free agent running back Lamar Miller return to form in workout
Back in March, running back Lamar Miller began his free agent journey and ever since then, he’s been working hard to give NFL teams a reason to pick him up.
A 2018 Pro Bowler with the Houston Texans, Miller missed the entirety of last season due to injury. In a preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, Miller tore his ACL putting a damper on what was to be a contract year with the Texans. The former Miami Hurricanes standout was hoping to have a breakout year in hopes of earning big payday before the knee injury derailed his plans.
Miller is optimistic while his road to recovery from the ACL tear seems to be going as planned. Just a few weeks ago, he posted a video on his Twitter account showing that he was back to work less than a year after he was sidelined. Recently, the free agent sent out another update displaying some of the speed and footwork that gave defenses across the league problems in 2018.

Although this is a positive sign for the Miami native’s career and health, it will still take a lot for him to get signed any time soon. With the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Miller might have to wait until training camp before a team gives him a call and can put him through a physical. In any case, a healthy Miller can provide speed and power to whichever team he ends up with.
Miller was taken 97th overall in the 2012 draft by his hometown Miami Dolphins. The 29-year-old has played his last four seasons with the Houston Texans.
