Chicago Bears re-sign Zach Miller Jersey to one-year contract after horrific knee injury

Tight end Zach Miller probably won’t play a single snap in 2018 after suffering a gruesome leg injury last season.

But the Chicago Bears are re-signing him anyway.

In a classy move, the team announced Monday that it has signed Miller, a 33-year-old free agent, to a one-year contract. According to multiple reports, the deal will pay him $458,000 even if he doesn’t play in 2018.

The Jets have added a veteran defensive lineman to the roster as their offseason program nears its conclusion. The new face is Chris Jones, who the Jets announced as a member of the team on Tuesday morning. Defensive lineman Claude Pelon was waived in a corresponding move.

Jones entered the NFL as a Texans sixth-round pick in 2013, but didn’t make the team out of camp. He wound up on the Patriots and started 23 games over the next two years for New England. In one of his Patriots appearances, Jones blocked a field goal attempt by then-Jets kicker Nick Folk to seal a victory. Jones missed all of the 2015 season with a torn calf, split the 2016 season between the Dolphins and 49ers and spent last season on injured reserve. He has 102 tackles and nine sacks for his career.

The Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots kick off mandatory minicamp three-day sessions that run through Thursday.

The other 28 teams will hold their minicamps next week (June 12-14).

Other than the session going from voluntary Womens Earl Thomas Jersey to mandatory, not much changes from an on-field perspective from Phase 3 of organized team activities to minicamp. Practices remain pad-less. No live contact is allowed, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted. Clubs can hold two practices per day for the three-day period, as long as the players’ time on the field doesn’t surpass a C.J. Fiedorowicz Jersey total of 3.5 hours per day, and the second session is a walkthrough.

Skipping mandatory minicamp can result in fines of about $14,000 per day. Players who have not signed their franchise tag like Le’Veon Bell are not under contract and therefore cannot be fined for avoiding minicamp.
