The Saints have signed Lamar Miller to the practice squad, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus (Twitter link via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com). The former Pro Bowl running back will give the Saints some extra insurance with Tony Jones on the injured reserve list.
Miller auditioned for New Orleans earlier this month, along with Duke Johnson, Brian Hill, Ito Smith, and Ryquell Armstead. That same week, the Saints signed running back Devine Ozigbo off of the Jaguars’ taxi squad. Now, they’ve circled back to Miller, who was once one of the league’s top rushers.
The veteran has two 1,000-yard rushing seasons on his resume, including his ’18 Pro Bowl year. However, he hasn’t been the same since his 2019 ACL tear. He’s had stops with the Patriots, Bears, and the Washington Football Team in recent years, all amounting to two catches for six yards.
