Jets waive Miller before Panthers game

11/28/2009 - NFL Justin Miller New York Jets + more

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets have waived former Pro Bowl cornerback-kick returner Justin Miller a month after re-signing him.

Miller played in one game for New York, but was inactive the last two. There was some concern Miller lacked some of the explosiveness that made him a Pro Bowl pick in 2006.

Special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff said Friday that he was "pretty sure" Miller would be active and return kicks Sunday against Carolina. He could be replaced by David Clowney, who returned one kick for 37 yards at New England on Sunday.

Miller, a second-round pick of the Jets in 2005, was waived last season and claimed by Oakland. The Raiders re-signed him for one game this season and released him before the Jets signed him Oct. 27.
