Seahawks TE Zach Miller has reworked the final two years of his deal.

The restructure lowers Miller's base salary from $6 million to $3 million. He has the opportunity to earn $1 million back through incentives. The deal will also lower Miller's 2014 and 2015 cap hits, increasing his chances to stay in Seattle at least the next two seasons. Miller, a better blocker than receiver, posted a 33-387-5 line in 14 games last season. Look for No. 2 tight end Luke Willson's role to grow at Miller's expense in 2014.

Zach Miller is owed a $1 million roster bonus next Thursday.

The Seahawks were expected to ask Miller to take a pay cut on the $5.8 million he's owed in 2014 between salary and bonuses. If Jermichael Finley's medicals check out, that might not even be an option anymore. The Seahawks also have two talented youngsters in Like Willson and Anthony McCoy.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirms the Seahawks are "likely" to ask TE Zach Miller to take a pay cut.

Miller has been one of GM John Schneider's few bad signings, catching just 96 passes in 45 games as a Seahawk. Coming off a 33/387/5 2013, Miller is due $5.8 million between salary and bonuses. There's a zero-percent chance he'll be back at that rate.
Feb 4 - 8:23 PM

Seahawks TE Zach Miller may be released or asked to take a pay cut.

The Seahawks are bumping up against the 2014 salary cap already and have several important players such as Golden Tate, RT Breno Giacomini, and CB Walter Thurmond set to become free agents next month. Miller posted a 33-387-5 line in 14 games last season and carries a $7 million cap number for 2014. Second-year TE Luke Willson is reportedly well regarded by Seattle and could be seen as a capable, cheaper replacement for Miller.

Zach Miller was held to one catch for ten yards in Super Bowl 48.

Miller's lone reception came on a designed tight end play to the perimeter, gaining ten around the right edge. Mostly an on-the-line blocker in Seattle's run-first offense, Miller's role won't change in 2014, assuming he's back. The 28-year-old is owed a $4.8 million base salary, $1 million roster bonus, and $200,000 workout bonus. Miller has finished 43rd, 29th, and 21st in fantasy scoring in his three seasons with Seattle.
Feb 2 - 10:17 PM

Zach Miller caught three passes for 25 yards in Seattle's NFC Championship Game win over the 49ers.

Miller hauled in all three of his targets. One of Seattle's primary red-zone targets, Miller will be a threat to find the end zone in Super Bowl XLVIII, but has caught more than three passes only three times all season.
Jan 19 - 11:50 PM

Zach Miller caught one pass for 11 yards in Seattle's Divisional Round win over the Saints.

Miller's fourth-quarter grab was his lone target of the afternoon. Miller has a nose for the end zone, but was limited to 33 catches in 14 regular-season games. He'll be a boom-or-bust option in daily leagues for the championship round.
Jan 11 - 9:08 PM

Zach Miller caught three passes for 21 yards in Seattle's Week 17 win over St. Louis.

Miller wraps up the regular season with a 30-366-5 stat line as a receiver. More of an in-line, blocking-type tight end, Miller will remain a critical component in the Seahawks' balanced offense during the playoffs, even if he's never offered true big-play ability.

Zach Miller caught one pass for an 11-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Savvy fantasy owners that streamed against a Cardinals' defense inept at defending tight ends got their touchdown. Midway through the fourth quarter, Miller lined up as an in-line tight end and somehow found himself wide open at the side of the end zone. Perhaps he could have had a bigger game if the Seahawks pushed the seam at all, but they didn't. Half of Miller's four touchdowns this season have come against Arizona.

Zach Miller (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Miller was held out of practice on Wednesday, but returned to limited participation on both Thursday and Friday. He's worth a look as a streaming option this week in a matchup with a Cardinals defense that's allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends. Miller caught five passes for 40 yards and a touchdown against Arizona back in Week 7.

Zach Miller (ribs) returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Miller is ahead of where he was last week, where he ultimately suited up against the Giants. He's good to go for a matchup with a Cardinals defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends.
Thu, Dec 19, 2013 06:56:00 PM

Zach Miller (ribs) did not practice Wednesday.

Miller missed practice last week but played against the Giants and caught an eight-yard pass. He gets to see Arizona's horrid defense when it comes to stopping tight ends this week. Miller and Luke Willson are on the sleeper map.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 07:25:00 PM

Zach Miller was held to one catch for eight yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the Giants.

Miller got open for a would-be red-zone touchdown early in the third quarter, but Russell Wilson overthrew him in the back of the end zone. An entirely touchdown-dependent fantasy commodity, Miller will burn a hole in your lineup if he doesn't score. He does have a plus matchup against Arizona next.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:30:00 PM

Zach Miller (ribs) is active for Week 15 against the Giants.

As usual, Miller will be a touchdown-dependent TE2.
