Report: Zach Miller, Bears to Agree to 1-Year Contract After TE Nearly Lost Leg

The Chicago Bears and tight end Zach Miller, who nearly lost his leg after suffering a dislocated left knee last October, have reportedly agreed to a one-year contract.

Pro Football Talk reported the deal is for the veteran’s minimum.

Miller is not expected to play this season after the knee dislocation, which also led to a torn artery that could have resulted in an amputation. He underwent vascular surgery to save the leg and has been in rehabilitation for the last seven months.

Buzz persisted that Miami was in play for some combination of those three quarterbacks. The Jets traded up. The Bills traded up. The Cardinals traded up. The Dolphins wound up with a defensive back, Minkah Fitzpatrick, rather than a QB. During the process, Gase would give Tannehill—who suffered an ACL injury in August 2017 that cost him the season—a heads up before the team would have one of those players in or go out to see them, just so the quarterback wouldn’t hear about it somewhere else.

Last year, Suh posted 24.5 tackles at or behind the line. Davon Godchaux, the team’s top returning defensive tackle, posted just nine of those tackles. Godchaux, Jordan Phillips and Akeem Spence will play most of the snaps in Miami’s defensive tackle rotation.
