With training camp in full swing, Kansas City Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach continues to add to the team recently put under his care.
On Wednesday, the Chiefs signed veteran Defensive Tackle Roy Miller.
Miller, originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, has played seven years in the league, splitting time between the Bucs and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 6-foot 2-inch, 318-pound, 30-year-old tackle has recorded 244 tackles and four sacks in 112 career games.
The late move could be a simple play to add depth to the Chiefs front line but also could be due to the recent news of second-year tackle Chris Jones being placed on the National Football Leagues Physically Unable to Perform list.
Miller's contract would lead fans to believe that he will be sticking around for the 2017 season, as it does include guaranteed money, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
