The 6-foot-2, 318-pound defensive tackle had 10 tackles in six games before an Achilles injury cut his 2016 campaign short. In 2015, he made 22 tackles and had 4.0 sacks. According to the Kansas City Star, he was set to make $3.6 million in 2017 prior to his release.
Miller joins Texas exes Derrick Johnson and Donald Hawkins in Kansas City. Longhorns great Jamaal Charles signed with the Broncos in May after nine seasons with the Chiefs.
