However, the offer just wasn't enough. Miller eventually accepted a six-year deal from the Bills, worth up $120 million with $51.4 million guaranteed in the first three years.

“I told them I was ready to come to the Cowboys,” Miller told reporters. “I would have taken less to go to Dallas because it’s Dallas. But I wouldn’t take that much less.”

According to the Athletic's Dan Pompei, the Cowboys offered Miller a five-year, $70 million deal, with two years guaranteed.

The deal Miller refused, is the same deal that for Cowboys edge rusher Randy Gregory refused this spring. Gregory would eventually sign with the Denver Broncos on a deal with the same terms.
