What, exactly, is Zach Miller doing in Seattle? We know the Oakland Raiders tight end is visiting the Seahawks on Monday, but we don't know how serious he is about joining the team. All along, the prevailing sentiment has been that Miller would eventually re-sign with the Raiders, albeit after they cleared some cap room. So it came as a surprise to see reports of his visit to Seattle on Monday. Is his interest in the Seahawks serious, or is there something more at play?
If the San Francisco Chronicle is right, Miller may be using the trip to Seattle as leverage, hoping to create a bidding war or force the Raiders to up the ante.
This could be a ploy by Miller to get some leverage in his dealings with Oakland - just to show the Raiders that he has other options. (And don't think former Raiders coach and current Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable isn't smiling a little bit if that's true.)
And it could be nothing other than a free lunch, as there were strong indications by many close to the Raiders on Sunday night that Miller would be in Napa soon
