Browns' Braxton Miller: Helps himself Thursday
Miller caught three of six targets for 19 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions.
Nothing should be read into the fact that Miller received significant playing time in the final preseason game, traditionally a meaningless affair played mostly by guys that will end up released Saturday. Head coach Freddie Kitchens was eager to see Miller after the former Ohio State Buckeye was added to the roster last week. Antonio Callaway (suspension) will miss the first four games, so there is a spot available for Miller, who had one nice diving grab for 13 yards that dug the Browns out of a hole at their own 2-yard-line. His main challenger, Ishmael Hyman, had a bad first-quarter stretch with a couple of drops and couldn't corral a contested third-down pass.... See More ... See Less

Eagles' Braxton Miller: Gets nod from Doug Pederson
Miller was the first player coach Doug Pederson mentioned when he was asked Tuesday about the team's depth at wide receiver, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
It's a bit early to reach any conclusions, but it isn't crazy to think Miller could enter a competition with Shelton Gibson and Mack Hollins for the No. 4 job at wide receiver. The 2016 third-rounder had just 261 receiving yards on 805 offensive snaps in two seasons with Houston and then spent most of 2018 on the Philadelphia practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Braxton Miller: Signs with Eagles
Miller signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on Monday.
Miller signed with the Eagles' practice squad back in early September, and the team appears as though it wants to give him a shot at the 53-man roster throughout the offseason and training camp. The receiver last played for the Texans in 2017, hauling in 19 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown over 11 games.... See More ... See Less
Braxton Miller: Joins Eagles' practice squad
The Eagles signed Miller to their practice squad Saturday, Zach Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Miller, a 2016 third-round pick, transitioned from star quarterback at Ohio State to wide receiver in the NFL. He was released by the Texans during final cuts last week. Although he has not produced much at the NFL level, he will now get a chance to earn a role with the Eagles.... See More ... See Less
Braxton Miller: Waived by Texans
Miller was waived by the Texans on Friday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Miller simply never panned out after the Texans used a 2016 third-round pick to gamble on the former Ohio State quarterback, with the intention of converting him to a receiver. Entering the 2018 campaign, the hope was that Miller would separate himself as a quality slot receiver, but Bruce Ellington was much more impressive in that capacity this preseason. While his time is now over in Houston, Miller still boasts elite athleticism and stands to have decent odds of being claimed off waivers by another team.... See More ... See Less
Braxton Miller: Could return to Houston
Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said the team is "working through some things" in response to a question about Miller being released.
O'Brien addressed several topics after a slew of roster cuts came down Friday and made it sound like Miller could be back in the fold. "I don't know what's being instagrammed out there, tweeted out there, whatever - I'm not sure how that all works. But, we're still working through some things, Braxton's an improved player, no doubt about it and we'll see what happens." We were surprised that Houston let Miller go, as he's performed well in preseason games.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Braxton Miller: Starts in place of injured Fuller
Miller started at wide receiver in place of the injured Will Fuller (hamstring) in Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.
Fuller came up lame late in the practice week and was scratched from the game. Miller was targeted a team-high five times, catching three for 26 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown. He was particularly impressive on the touchdown catch, grabbing a 50-50 ball in a crowd. "That was a nice play," coach Bill O'Brien told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "I think the guy on the outside might have run the wrong route and they both ended up in the same spot. Usually, we don't design routes where guys run to the same spot and jump in the air. But Braxton came down with it and it was a really nice play." Miller is mostly competing with Bruce Ellington for work in the slot, but the third-year pro was given some opportunities outside the numbers Saturday. He leads the team with nine catches and 94 yards during the preseason.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Braxton Miller: Finds end zone in preseason loss
Miller secured three of five targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 21-20 preseason loss to the Rams on Saturday.
Miller hauled in a seven-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Weeden just before halftime, adding to his successful preseason. The 25-year-old has totaled nine catches for 94 yards and Saturday's score over three exhibitions as he battles for a roster spot on the latter half of the receiver depth chart. The 2016 third-round pick appears to be trending in the right direction in that regard, although another productive effort in next Thursday's preseason finale versus the Cowboys certainly wouldn't hurt....

Texans' Braxton Miller: Has game-high eight targets
Miller caught three passes for 40 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the 49ers.
Miller's had an encouraging preseason, both in training camp and the first preseason game, but the view on him is less sanguine following Saturday's effort. He led the team with eight targets, but caught less than half and had a drop early. Bruce Ellington, on the other hand, made a strong case for the No. 3 receiver job, catching four passes for 50 yards and a touchdown (all on the opening drive).... See More ... See Less
Texans' Braxton Miller: Returns to practice Monday
Miller (illness) made his return to practice Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

His return to full health will be key moving forward as he competes for the starting role at slot receiver.... See More ... See Less
