It has long been thought once the NFL gets back to business the Oakland Raiders will complete a deal to re-sign tight end Zach Miller.
But what happens if another team comes in and makes a big offer? Miller has put in his four years and could become an unrestricted free agent depending on how the new collective bargaining agreement shakes out.
As a preemptive strike the Raiders placed a first- and third-round tender on the tight end in hopes of retaining him. The two sides began contract talks prior to the labor hiatus and Miller is confident talks will resume once the lockout is lifted.
Still, there is a chance another team could swoop in with a big offer. Perhaps the Buffalo Bills? It remains to be seen whether Ralph Wilson will be willing to back up the truck for a tight end, however.
But, as Pat Kirwan of NFL.com points out, the team needs to upgrade at the position and Miller would do wonders for them.
Kirwan also suggested Kevin Boss of the New York Giants would be an improvement over David Martin and Shawn Nelson.
