Chiefs' Roy Miller arrested in Jacksonville on battery charge

Former Jacksonville Jaguars player Roy Miller

Cam Thomas is back once again with the Kansas City Chiefs, signing with the team on Monday, per Field Yates, as the defensive tackle hopes to help replace the recently released Roy Miller.

The Chiefs signed him during the 2017 off-season. "I can't really talk about anything from a legal standpoint, so I'm going to just leave it at that".

The Chiefs were in the market for another stout defensive tackle who can help supply a rotational body in the team's run defense packages.

There is no other information at this time, but the Chiefs are aware of the incident. The Chiefs are on their bye week, and Miller is spending it back home in Florida.

The 30-year-old Roy Miller, who was drafted out of Texas by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, spent the past four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He played in 15 games during his rookie campaign, finishing with 34 tackles and a pair of sacks.

He was scheduled to have his first appearance in court at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Miller, 30, is accused of dragging his wife by the hair, tearing a braid from her head and almost ripping off her shirt, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office incident report. Miller and Nicole Miller have been married for six and a half years and have four children together ranging in ages three to nine.

Police found Roy asleep in the master bedroom.

According to Nicole, Roy Miller also shoved her, threw her phone in the toilet and didn't allow her to retrieve it.

Miller arrived home later. The verbal argument allegedly turned physical, with Nicole Miller saying he pushed her around and grabbed her hair. She said Miller ripped a braid from her head and ripped her shirt off her.
