Former Penn State defensive end Shareef Miller has been selected by the New Orleans Breakers in the fourth round of the USFL supplemental draft.
Miller, who played at Penn State from 2015-18, was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in, coincidentally, the fourth round of the 2019 NFL draft.
He only played one game for Philadelphia in 2019, which amounted to just two special teams snaps.
Since then, Miler has bounced around to four teams — including a brief reunion with the Eagles in 2020 — and hasn’t gotten a chance to play in another NFL game.
While Miller still awaits his first defensive rep in the NFL, he’ll at least be getting a chance to play pro football again, which he hasn’t done since the Atlanta Falcons waved during the 2021 preseason.
At Penn State, Miller was named third-team All-Big Ten in both 2017 and ’18 and in 2018 received the team’s co-defensive MVP honors with current Detroit Lion Amani Oruwariye, an award given to both at the team’s end of year banquet.
