The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released quarterback Brian Griese on Monday, while simultaneously signing defensive tackle Roy Miller, the organization's third-round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Griese, in his second stint with the Bucs, started in five games in 2008. He then suffered a shoulder injury in Week Five against the Broncos, an injury that terminated his season.

In his career, Griese has thrown for 19,440 yards with 119 touchdowns and 99 interceptions in 93 games. His career QB rating is 82.7.

The 6'1", 310-pound Miller, who made Tampa Bay his official home today, signed a four-year deal. The University of Texas alum recorded 49 tackles and five-and-a-half sacks as a Senior.
