Free agent running back Lamar Miller might not be on the market for long, according to reports.

The recently released veteran back, who was surprisingly cut by the Patriots over the weekend as they pare down their roster ahead of Week 1, was reportedly already scheduled for a visit with one of New England's division rivals.

The 29-year-old Miller was set to meet with the Buffalo Bills on Monday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Miller hit the free agent market only weeks after the Patriots signed him in August, when running back Sony Michel suffered a foot injury. Michel has since returned, apparently making Miller expendable.

Miller spent the past four seasons with the Houston Texans, after spending the previous four with the Miami Dolphins, who drafted him the fourth round in 2012. He missed the entire 2019 regular season after suffering a torn ACL in the Texans' third preseason game last year.

The eight-year pro has tallied 5,864 career rushing yards on an average of 4.3 yards per attempt.

The Patriots open at home against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Bills will host the New York Jets in Orchard Park, NY.
