Stay healthy, Scotty!
May 26, 2022
Last year, aside from two key special teams games and a Benn’d Around for a touchdown (!), Scotty Miller’s 2021 season was pretty much a waste.
Miller injured himself early and suffered a turf toe. This thing has hampered him so much that he hasn’t gotten many reps on offense — a grand total of five receptions in 2021.
This year seems like a fresh start for Miller. He’s healthy, to begin with. And knowing he’s entering a contract year, he’s apparently in pretty good shape, enough that Bucs coach Todd Bowles gave him some fitness gear yesterday.
So there seems to be a sense of urgency with Miller to have a great year, which will translate to some nice zeros on his checks next season, wherever that may be.
“He looks good – he’s in good shape,” Bowles said of Miller. ” He runs fast. He’s doing everything right now, so we’re just going to knock on wood.
“Hopefully that gets transferred to training camp and he doesn’t get injured again.”
Miller gave Bucs fans a taste of what he could be when he became one of Tom Brady’s favorite home run threats. He has certainly demonstrated that he has the wheels to get behind a defense.
If you think about it, with the immortals Cyril Grayson and Miller as backups, the Bucs have some serious speed they can bring to spark an offense.
The last big play Joe remembered Miller making in the passing game was that massive 39-yard touchdown from Tom Brady in the closing seconds of the first half of the NFC Championship Game at Green Bay.
Hopefully this isn’t the last big catch Miller makes for the Bucs.
