With Knowshon Moreno still healing from arthroscopic knee surgery, Miller has topped the depth chart all summer and looms as a solid bet to improve on last year's underwhelming campaign in new coordinator Bill Lazor's Eagles-centric attack.
"He told me that the opportunity is great," Miller said of Lazor over the weekend, per The Miami Herald. "They always keep the defense on their toes. Once you get the ball, you've got to take advantage of the opportunity."
Miller added eight pounds of muscle this offseason in an effort to break more tackles and improve on last year's 2.06 yards after contact per attempt, which ranked 24th in the NFL
Miller's rookie average of 4.9 yards per carry fell to 4.0 last season, but we expect that figure to climb back up with Lazor telling us over the summer that Miami has a scheme that will emphasize "big plays in the running game" by getting its "backs in space" as Philly did with LeSean McCoy in 2013.
