The New England Patriots have signed veteran running back Lamar Miller to a one-year one-year contract, pending a physical, agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Patriots were looking for some added backfield talent as starter Sony Michel underwent offseason foot surgery and opened training camp on the active/physically unable to perform list.

Additionally, reserve back Brandon Bolden chose to opt out of the 2020 season.

Miller missed all of last season, while a member of the Houston Texans, due to a torn ACL that he suffered during the third preseason game.

Miller ran for 2,934 yards and 13 touchdowns on 716 carries, adding 92 receptions and 5 receiving touchdowns over his three active seasons in Houston.

Prior to joining the Texans in free agency via a four-year, $26 million contract, Miller played for the Miami Dolphins who selected him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft.
