06:55 PM ET 03.01 | Roy Miller's agent has told the media that talks between his client and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have not resulted in a deal being reached, and that Miller will likely hit the free agent market. According to an article by Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, Miller's agent told the media that Roy has a lot to offer because he was a part of the best run defense in the NFL in 2012. Miller's agent, Mike McCartney, has revealed the exact reason why Miller is likely not going to be a Buccaneer in 2012. Miller's mere presence in the Tampa Bay defense overshadowed his lack of impact on the team. Miller was a rushing downs mainstay, seeing the field in obvious rushing situations to clog up the middle and give room for other players to make tackles. But by the end of the season, he was playing only 20 to 30 snaps per game on defense, sitting out upwards of 50 defensive snaps in the closing weeks of the 2012 regular season.

So - basically he's a spare part that wants to be paid like a star.

Doesn't seem like a terribly realistic demand, does it?

A team could use him on 3rd or 4th and short and Goal Line Stands, but he's got to take less money!
