Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller signs 4-year extension worth $16.2M
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Roy Miller has signed a four-year contract extension worth $16.2 million.
Miller signed the deal Tuesday, two days before the Jaguars (2-12) play their home finale against the Tennessee Titans (2-12).
The Jaguars identified Miller as a building block for a defense that has played well most of the season. Jacksonville signed fellow defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks to a four-year deal worth $22 million last December. Marks' deal includes $8 million guaranteed.
Miller was near tears as teammates congratulated him in the locker room. He says "those type of things change your life, your family's life. You can't ask for anything better than that."
Miller has started 14 games this season, recording 30 tackles and a sack.
