Terrence Miller signs with the New York Jets

Terrence Miller will get a shot at the NFL

Former Arizona Wildcat Terrence Miller signed as an undrafted free agent Saturday night with the New York Jets according to the Arizona Football twitter account:

It was not unexpected that Miller went undrafted, nor that he's going to get a chance in mini-camp somewhere.  He's a big body, listed at 6-4 and 234 pounds in last year's media guide.

In 2012, Miller missed nine of Arizona's games, and was granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA.  

The senior from Moreno Valley, CA played in each and every one of the Wildcats' games in 2013, and trailed only Nate Phillips for total receiving yards with 467.  He was also responsible for the longest passing play of the season, a 60-yarder.

For his career, he finished with 95 catches for 1,117 yards and three receiving TDs.  I would say that last season was somewhat of a disappointment for Miller, who was easily the biggest target on the field for the inexperienced B.J. Denker.  But Miller dropped a lot of easy passes early on in the season, and never fully recovered.  

He did have a couple of games where he reached 88 total yards against Cal and Oregon, which were tied for his season high.  The nine catches he had against Oregon were easily the most he had in a single game in 2013.

I think his size will at least give him a chance to latch onto a practice squad somewhere, but his route-running abilities and his hands are in need of some serious work if he's going to become a receiver in the NFL.  It'll be an uphill climb for sure, but at least he's getting the opportunity.
