Miller, 29, missed the entire 2019 campaign after suffering a torn ACL in the preseason. In 2018 with Houston, he rushed for 973 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games and was named to the Pro Bowl.

Miller's most productive NFL season came in 2014 with Miami when he tallied 1,099 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

Miller joins a Patriots running back depth chart that also consists of Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead, James White and Damien Harris. Michel underwent foot surgery in May and was placed on the PUP list earlier this month, while veteran running back Brandon Bolden opted out of the 2020 season.
