The former FAU defensive backs signed a free agent contract with the Chiefs following their tryout at Kansas City’s rookie minicamp.
Both announced their signings via social media. Miller confirmed it via text to OwlAccess.com, writing, “Yes sir.” Soroh also confirmed.
After beginning his career as a true cornerback, Miller moved to nickel midway through his career. Standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 195 pounds, Miller is long enough to cover larger receivers and isn’t afraid to deliver a blow.
As a senior, Miller struggled in first-year defensive coordinator Tony Pecoraro’s new system – as many veteran Owls did. Miller lost his starting nickel spot to Quran Hafiz and only recorded 13 tackles. FAU coach Lane Kiffin fired Pecoraro following a disappointing 2018.
The year prior Miller recorded a season-high 35 tackles and intercepted a pass to help lead the Owls to their first Conference USA championship. That came one season after Miller’s 26-tackle campaign in 2016.
As a freshman Miller intercepted a pass and broke up six more, and also recorded 29 tackles.
Soroh began his career as a safety before moving to linebacker midway through his junior year. The Chiefs will move Soroh back into the secondary. He recorded 176 tackles, including 11.5 for loss, at FAU. Soroh also picked off three passes.
Miller and Soroh become the fourth and fifth former Owls to join an NFL team over the last couple weeks.
Buffalo selected running back Devin Singletary in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Chicago chose Kerrith Whyte, Singletary’s backfield mate, in the seventh round. Linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair signed as a free agent with San Francisco.
Cornerback Shelton Lewis also tried out for the Chiefs over the weekend but Kansas City elected not to sign him. Lewis said the team told him he was on their short list should they need another corner. He won’t sit around and wait for that call. Lewis accepted an invitation to this week’s Cincinnati minicamp.
Seattle elected not to sign former FAU wide receiver Jovon Durante, an early entrant into the NFL Draft, following the Seahawks weekend rookie minicamp so Durante has accepted an invitation to the upcoming Philadelphia Eagles rookie minicamp for a tryout.
Former FAU offensive tackle Reggie Bain didn’t attend a camp over the weekend, accepting an invitation to Washington’s upcoming camp instead.
