TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Storm is pleased to announce that it has acquired former National Football League defensive lineman Jordan Miller.
“Jordan adds additional strength and experience to our defensive line,” said Storm vice president of football operations Jeff Gooch. “He has NFL experience that will be an added benefit to our team.”
Miller (6-foot-1, 335 lbs., Southern University) joins the Storm after spending part of the 2016 season with the Jacksonville Sharks. The second-year veteran started in 6-of-8 games for the Sharks, recording 4.5 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, an interception and a pass breakup.
The Nashville, TN native began his professional career in 2011 when he signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted rookie free agent. Miller spent three seasons in the NFL, splitting time between the Bears, Green Bay Packers and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Prior to turning pro, Miller played three seasons at Southern University. He saw his most productive year in 2010, when he started in 11 games, recording 32.0 tackles, a team-leading 15.0 tackles for loss and 7.0 sacks. He finished his career having appeared in 31 games, tallying 90.0 tackles, 27.5 tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, a pass breakup and a forced fumble.
