Zach Miller continues to battle a gruesome knee injury suffered last season. Despite the injury, the tight end will continue his career in Chicago.
The Bears signed Miller to a one-year deal for the veteran minimum, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio first reported the development.
The 33-year-old was a free agent and is highly doubtful to play in 2018. Keeping the veteran around is a classy move by the organization. Miller will earn $458,000 whether he plays or not, and $790,000 if he somehow hit the field this season, per Rapoport.

Wow, standing ovation for this move. It helps him with health coverage, makes it easier for him to stick around the team, even allows him to keep dreaming of playing again, if only as a way to help his recovery.
The only downside is losing a spot on the 90 man roster until he can go on IR. This is another nail in the coffin of the myth that the current Bears organisation is cheap!
