NEW ORLEANS (AP) -The New Orleans Saints re-signed tight end Billy Miller on Friday.
Miller, 6-foot-3 and 252 pounds, is an eight-year veteran and has been with the Saints since 2006. He has 155 career receptions for 1,669 yards and nine touchdowns.
Since joining New Orleans, Miller has started nine of 26 games and caught 41 passes for 457 yards. His highlight with the team was a 57-yard reception last season that set up a touchdown in a victory over Jacksonville.
The signing gives the Saints two proven tight ends in Miller and Mark Campbell, who spent last season on injured reserve.
Also, Eric Johnson, a free agent tight end who had 48 receptions for 378 yeards and two touchdowns with New Orleans last season, wants to return to the Saints.
