TE Zach Miller will not be heading back to Oakland. According to reports, he agreed to terms with the Seahawks on Tuesday.
The Seattle Seahawks sure are acquiring a lot of solid pass-catchers for a team who has a shaky quarterback situation. After picking up WR Sidney Rice on the open market, the Seahawks have reportedly agreed to terms with TE Zach Miller, formerly of the Oakland Raiders.
Miller was Oakland's best offensive weapon so that'll hurt Oakland moving forward. What will hurt as much is that those in Raider nation thought Miller would be returning. He visited the Seahawks earlier this week but reports emerged on Tuesday morning that he was likely to stay in Oakland.
Miller was the Raiders second round pick in the 2007 NFL draft and lead the team in catches and receptions last year. He should become Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson's best friend in Seattle's passing game.
I'm a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and I can tell you the rest of the AFC West is happy to have him out of the division. He instantly makes Seattle a better team as they continue to add weapons to make a shaky quarterback situation a little better.
