It ends an injury-plagued first season for the converted quarterback, who the Texans selected in the third round out of Ohio State last May. Miller is a gifted athlete but struggled with hamstring issues for much of the season as well as the shoulder injury that finally landed him on IR.
He made little impact in the Texans offense, catching only 15 passes for 99 yards in ten games. Many of Miller’s rookie struggles can also be attributed to the ineptitude of QB Brock Osweiler.
With another offseason to learn the wide receiver position, Miller should return stronger and better in 2017-especially if he is being thrown passes by a more competent quarterback.
