Texans Working To Finalize Lamar Miller's Deal Before New League Year Opens

The Houston Texans are working hard to lock up Lamar Miller before the new league year opens.

According to’s Ian Rapoport, the Houston Texans are accelerating the process on locking up running back Lamar Miller before the new league year opens on Wednesday. The Texans have been in direct competition with the Dallas Cowboys in bidding for Miller’s services. 

The Cowboys were in the mix and reportedly set to go as high as $5 million annually for the soon-to-be former Dolphins running back. If the Texans can finish off the deal for the speedy back, expect that number to be north of $5 million annually for Miller. In 2015, Miller gained 872 yards, averaging 4.5 yards a carry with 8 touchdowns. He also had 47 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns. Miller had 13 touches go over 20 or more yards last season and had his biggest game against the Texans in week seven, rushing for 175 yards with 61 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
