Bombers agree to terms with Canadian fullback Mike Miller

WINNIPEG, MB., December 11, 2018 –  The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has agreed to terms with pending free agent Canadian fullback Mike Miller. Miller has agreed to a two-year deal with Winnipeg.

“Obviously from a pure special teams standpoint, Mike Miller stands out as one of the best in the CFL,” said General Manager 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 originally signed with Winnipeg as a free agent prior to the 2017 season, and has played in 140 career regular season games, including 36 over the past two seasons in Winnipeg. Miller finished with 22 special teams tackles in 2018, second on the team. He led the team in special teams tackles in 2017, and led the entire league in 2016.

“I’m extremely excited to get this done and continue to be a member of the Blue Bombers,” Miller said. “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.”
