Jacksonville Jaguars Are Signing Veteran Offensive Lineman Today

The Jacksonville Jaguars are fortifying their interior offensive line by adding a veteran guard to the depth chart this Tuesday.

As reported by Adam Schefter this afternoon, Jacksonville has signed the former Bills 3rd round pick John Miller.

"Jaguars are signing former Bills and Panthers' guard John Miller to the active roster, per his agents," Schefter announced. 

Miller played and started at least 12 games for Buffalo in three out of his four seasons with the team. 

After hitting free agency following the 2018 season, he inked a three-year, $16.5M contract with the Bengals before being released and signing with the Carolina Panthers. 

The Panthers moved on from Miller this past offseason, opening the door for him to sign with Jacksonville. As of now, the role for John Miller with the Jaguars is unclear. 

He likely won't start immediately, as current interior offensive linemen Brandon Scherff and Tyler Shatley have been successful in keeping Trevor Lawrence upright. Through five weeks this season, Lawrence has only been sacked 6 times. 

Miller will get his first opportunity for playing time as a Jaguar this Sunday as Jacksonville travels to take on the Indianapolis Colts.
