The Houston Texans have signed running back Lamar Miller, the team announced Thursday.

Miller’s deal is for four years with $14 million guaranteed, reports’s Ian Rapoport.

Miller carried the ball 194 times for 872 yards and eight touchdowns with the Dolphins last season. He also caught 47 passes for 397 yards and two scores.

Miller was curiously under-used by Miami, never running for more than 19 times in a game in 2015. Miller played in six games where he recorded less than 10 carries.

The numbers were a dropoff from Miller’s 2014 season, when he ran for 1,099 yards on 216 carries. 

In his career, the former fourth-round pick has 638 carries for 2,930 yards for 19 touchdowns, averaging 4.6 yards per carry.
