Lamar Miller is staying with the Washington Football Team. The veteran running back will return on a one-year deal, per agent Drew Rosenhaus (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport).

Miller signed with WFT in December, but has yet to suit up for a game. In fact, he hasn’t played since 2018 thanks to an ACL tear and other injuries. Before that, he made the Pro Bowl with 973 rushing yards, five touchdowns, and a solid 4.6 yards per carry average. He also added 25 receptions for 163 receiving yards and one touchdown during that campaign.

Miller, 30 in late April, could still be a difference-maker if he’s healthy. Recognizing this, WFT allocated some of their cap space towards Miller — likely on a low-cost deal. Among their pricier signings: A three-year, $42MM pact for former Bengals corner William Jackson III and a one-year, $10-$12MM deal for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
