The wife of former NFL defensive tackle Roy Miller said she feared for her life during a November 2017 domestic violence incident.

Nicole Miller filed new court documents (h/t TMZ) asking prosecutors to call off a plea deal. The deal could result in domestic violence charges being dropped in exchange for Miller entering a diversionary program. 

"My husband tackled me as if I was a 320 pound man on the football field," the document states. "I weigh 135 lbs, the weight of him crushing me and the impact of the blows to the back of my neck and him yanking my head side to side by my braids, was very painful and shocking all at once.

"I thought I was going to die and worst of all in front of my children."

Roy Miller, 30, was released by the Kansas City Chiefs following his arrest at the Florida home he shared with his wife. Nicole Miller has filed for divorce and filed a restraining order against her estranged husband. Previous court documents say Roy Miller drinks excessively and has been attempting to hide money ahead of the divorce proceedings, per TMZ.

Roy Miller has denied all allegations against him.
