The Oakland Raiders certainly want to keep free agent tight end Zach Miller on the team’s roster whenever NFL games resume, and many people believe the tight end is not going to be leaving the silver and black. However, the Raiders will have to pay him good second contract money, from which Creative Artists Agency (CAA) will take its commission. Prior to recently signing with CAA, Miller was represented by Irvine, California based Athletes First.
Before the NFL locked out its players, the Raiders placed a 1st and 3rd round tender on Miller, making him a restricted free agent. Prior to the start of the lockout, Miller and his agents at Athletes First had discussed terms of a new contract. Once teams and players are once again able to speak to one another, the Raiders will resume said discussions with Miller and his new representatives from CAA.
In 2010, Miller played in and started 15 games, averaging 11.4 yards per catch and had a total of 685 yards.
