Roy Miller gets his contract

Roy Miller, Defensive Tackle from the University of Texas, has come to a contract agreement with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The 6 foot 1, 310 pound defensive tackle will compete with Dre Moore, Chris Hovan, and Ryan Sims for playing time.  His strength at Texas is what drew the Bucs to draft him, though his size is almost identical to the other three players he will be competing with.

Per ProFootballTalk, Miller's deal has base salaries of $310,000 (2009), $395,000 (2010), $480,000 (2011), and $565,000 (2012) with a $770,000 signing bonus. Miller was a captain his senior season at Texas and was named as an All Big 12 defensive tackle after starting all 13 games. 

With the signing, there is only one draft pick left to join the team; quarterback Josh Freeman, which there is some encouraging news on the contract talk.

The completion of the deal means the Buccaneers have now signed five of their six '09 picks, leaving only first-round selection Josh Freeman still in negotiation. The quick contract work on this year's draft class has inspired confidence that the entire roster will be intact when camp opens on July 31.
