The Bills hosted free agent DLs Roy Miller, Leger Douzable, and Devon Still on Monday.

The headliner was Anquan Boldin, but the Bills also met with potential depth additions on the defensive line. A 30-year-old run stopper, Miller also recently met with the Dolphins. He tore his right Achilles' last October.

Free agent DT Roy Miller worked out for the Dolphins.

Miller tore his right Achilles' last October, but he recently said he is back at full health. A solid run stuffer, Miller would be a good depth signing for a roster which is thin behind Ndamukong Suh. Miller should land somewhere in the near future.

Free agent NT Roy Miller (Achilles') said "there's a few teams that have shown some interest" in him now that he's healthy.

"There's a couple of trips I have to take this month," Miller said. Miller is a good run stuffer on the interior that should be signed at some point this year now that he's healthy. The Jaguars released Miller in March. He turns 30 next month.

Jaguars released NT Roy Miller.

The writing was on the wall when Jacksonville signed DE Calais Campbell and DT Stefan Charles after retaining NT Abry Jones, who will take over for Miller in the starting lineup. A solid run stuffer when healthy, Miller tore his Achilles' tendon last Week 7. He was due over $4 million in salary and bonuses.

Jaguars NT Roy Miller suffered a torn right Achilles' Week 7 against the Raiders.

Jaguars NT Roy Miller suffered an Achilles' injury in Week 7.

It could be a potential season ender depending on the severity. Sen'Derrick Marks and Abry Jones will pick up Miller's snaps if he misses time.

Jaguars NT Roy Miller has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will eventually require surgery.

It's poor timing for a player who just signed a four-year, $16.25 million extension, but isn't a major injury. Miller should be a full participant in the Jags' offseason program. Miller is a run plugger, nothing more, nothing less.

Jaguars declared DT Roy Miller, WR Tommy Streeter, CB Teddy Williams, CB Jeremy Harris, S Matt Daniels, OG Tyler Shatley and DE Andre Branch inactive for Week 16 against the Titans.

Miller just signed a four-year, $16.25 million extension on Tuesday, but is battling a sprained knee. As previously reported, Blake Bortles (foot) is ready to go as the Jags' quarterback on Thursday Night Football.

Jaguars signed DT Roy Miller to a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension through 2018.

A 2009 third-round pick of the Bucs going on 28 years of age, Miller has started 28 games since the beginning of last season, operating as a run plugger. He's been roughly league average through 492 snaps this season, but has graded out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Miller is not an impact player.

A source tells the Florida Times Union that the Jaguars are close to a contract extension with DT Roy Miller.

A third-round pick of the Bucs in 2009, Miller inked a two-year deal with the Jaguars prior to last season and was scheduled to reenter free agency in March. He's rotated on the interior of coach Gus Bradley's defense the last two years. Miller has 30 tackles and one sack across 14 starts this season.

Jaguars DT Roy Miller (shoulder) has been limited at OTAs.

Miller tore cartilage in his shoulder early last season and was finally placed on I.R. in December after playing through the issue all year. He underwent surgery and expects to be "full go in late July" for training camp. Miller, Sen'Derrick Marks, Ziggy Hood, and Abry Jones will rotate at defensive tackle for the Jags.

Updating a previous item, Jaguars DT Roy Miller was placed on injured reserve Monday with a shoulder injury.

Miller has been playing much of the season with a torn labrum and needs surgery. Coach Gus Bradley called it "incredible" how Miller played through the injury all year. He signed a two-year, $4.5 million deal with the Jags in March.

Jaguars placed DT Roy Miller on injured reserve, ending his season.

They signed DT Drake Nevis off the street to replace Miller for Week 17. Signed to a two-year, $4.5 million away from Tampa Bay this offseason, Miller wound up starting 15-of-15 games, operating as an early-down run stuffer. Unfortunately, he's not a great run defender. Miller is owed a $2.375 million base salary in 2014, no portion of which is guaranteed.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell says NT Roy Miller's knee tendinitis is no longer an issue.

Miller was still being held back in this week's minicamp, but Caldwell says the 310-pounder would suit up if he needed to play in a game this weekend. He'll be part of the rotation on the interior of Jags' defensive line.
