According to a report from ESPN, the Texans could release running back Lamar Miller this offseason. Miller had a career worst 3.7 YPC last season and failed to top 100 rushing yards in any of his 16 games played in 2017.
Miller is owed $14 million over the next two years, and with a promising showing from rookie D’Onta Foreman last season, the Texans an in-house replacement if they move on. Even if Miller returns, it’s possible he’ll be shifted into more of a pass game role. The Texans can save $5.75 million from making Miller a post June cut.
