Pro Football has the details on the deal that Bucs third rounder Roy Miller has signed:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers third-round defensive tackle Roy Miller’s four-year rookie contract included a $770,000 signing bonus, according to a league source.

The total base value of the deal is worth $2.52 million, which includes minimum base salaries of $310,000, $395,000, $480,000 and $565,000.

However, the maximum value of Miller’s contract could be boosted significantly by a fourth-year escalator clause, according to our source.

Drafted 81st overall, the former University of Texas lineman registered 138 career tackles and 10 sacks for the Longhorns.

As a senior, the 6′1,” 310-pounder posted 49 tackles, 11 tackles for losses and 5 1/2 sacks.
