Blue Bombers Ink Pending Free Agent Mike Miller to Two-Year Deal

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have agreed to terms with pending free agent Canadian fullback Mike Miller on a two-year deal.

“Obviously from a pure special teams standpoint, Mike Miller stands out as one of the best in the CFL,” said GM Kyle Walters.

“It isn’t just his on-field play in that aspect of the game, either. It’s his knowledge of schemes, preparation, and attention to detail before even getting on the field. He’s also contributed for us at times on offence, and overall is great for our locker room. We are excited to bring him back.”

Miller, 29, has played in 140 career regular season games, including 36 over the past two seasons in Winnipeg. He led the team in special teams tackles in 2017, and led the entire league in 2016.

“Coach O’Shea and the environment in Winnipeg makes this an easy decision for me. The past few seasons we have felt we are so close to where we want to be, and hopefully 2019 we are finally able to achieve that goal,” Miller said in a statement.

The New Brunswick native originally signed with Winnipeg as a free agent prior to the 2017 season.
