Veteran running back Lamar Miller has found his way back to the AFC East.

The New England Patriots agreed to terms with the former Miami Dolphins draft choice on a one-year deal Monday, his representation, Rosenhaus Sports, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The deal is pending a physical for Miller, 29, who missed the 2019 regular season due to a torn ACL suffered last August.

The Miami Hurricanes product has amassed 5,864 rushing yards, 1,565 receiving yards and 40 total touchdowns since entering the league in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. Miller spent the past four campaigns with the Houston Texans and was named a Pro Bowler in 2018.

He has appeared in 105 career games while twice eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark on the ground.

New England’s active backfield depth chart includes Sony Michel, Damien Harris, James White, Rex Burkhead and undrafted rookie J.J. Taylor after Brandon Bolden opted out of the upcoming season.

Michel, who underwent foot surgery in the spring, remains on the physically unable to perform list.

The Patriots’ initial practice of training camp will arrive Wednesday. Full-pads work will follow on Aug. 17.
