Former Memorial High football standout Wesley Miller is getting a shot in the NFL, earning a free-agent tryout with the Buffalo Bills.
Miller, a safety, was one of 11 players added for this weekend's rookie mini camp so coaches can run full practices.
A former walk-on who was UTEP's defensive captain last fall, Miller as a senior started all 13 games and led the Miners in tackles (80), solo stops (48) and interceptions (two) while tying for second with seven pass breakups and registering a fumble recovery.
He matched his career high in tackles (11) and had an interception against Middle Tennessee, which helped UTEP secure a bowl bid and earned him Conference USA athlete of the week honors. He also was a Capital One Academic All-America second-team selection.
