Former Ohio State standout quarterback turned wide receiver Braxton Miller is back in the NFL, as the speedy playmaker has signed with an NFC South contender.

The Carolina Panthers announced this morning that Miller has been signed to the team's practice squad, giving the team some depth at the wide receivers position.

Miller, 26, has been a journeyman throughout his NFL career. This will be the fourth team he's played for in as many seasons.

Carolina announced the news this morning:

Miller comes to Carolina following a brief stint with Cleveland during the preseason. He spent the entire 2018 season on Philadelphia’s practice squad.

Miller entered the NFL from Ohio State as a third-round selection (85th overall) by the Houston Texans in the 2016 NFL Draft. In his two seasons with the Texans, Miller played in 21 games with nine starts and tallied 34 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns. Miller was a standout dual-threat quarterback with the Buckeyes as their three-year starter.

Miiller was a third-round pick out of Ohio State in the 2016 NFL Draft, taken by Houston. He played for the Texans for two seasons. Miller has since spent time with the Eagles and the Browns, before landing in Carolina.

The wide receiver has 34 career catches for 261 yards and two touchdowns.
