Not to be confused with the TE Zach Miller whose eight-year career ended in 2014, this Miller only seemingly came out of nowhere - he's actually been around since 2009. Injuries, though, kept him off ...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Despite having not appeared in an NFL game since 2011, Miller was on his way to claiming a roster spot with the Bears out of training camp last season. After excelling in the early stages of practices, Miller turned in an impressive preseason opener against the Eagles, reeling in six passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns. However, he suffered a foot injury in the next exhibition that effectively ended his chances of making the club, and he was ultimately placed on season-ending injured reserve. The Bears opted to bring him back in February on a one-year contract, and heíll now have the chance with competing for Dante Rosario and a slew of other candidates for one of the two available reserve jobs behind starter Martellus Bennett. With Bennett emerging as one of the league's better tight ends last season and playing 90 percent of the Bears' offensive snaps, donít expect Miller or any of the other backup candidates to see the field much.

2014

With Martellus Bennett the unquestioned starter at tight end for 2014, Miller was on track battle for a role as his top backup, along with Matthew Mulligan, Dante Rosario, and Jeron Mastrud. That prospect was derailed by an August foot injury that landed Miller on IR.

2012

Miller is an intriguing player who hasn't been able to stay healthy long enough to put it all together. His frame and physical attributes make him an ideal target for QB Blaine Gabbert, but patience is likely wearing thin for the injury-plagued Miller, who will likely have to put it all together during training camp to be assured of a roster spot.

2011

Miller showed great promise in his rookie year, but regressed significantly in 2010. As it currently stands, Marcedes Lewis has a stranglehold on the tight end position, and only seems to be improving. Targets may therefore be few and far between for Miller in 2011.

2010

The lesser known Zach Miller showed signs of development after two notable late-season games last year. In Week 13 against Houston he had three catches for 74 yards, and in Week 17 in a meaningless game against the Browns he recorded eight grabs for 69 yards and two touchdowns. He should continue to develop as a sophomore this year and could push Marcedes Lewis for the starting job.

2009

Miller will battle for a backup tight end spot in 2009.
