If Miller Doesn’t Get AJ, He’s Playing Football
While Dillian Whyte believes any chance of him getting a fight with Anthony Joshua this April are dead, Jarrell Miller has publicly pronounced if he does not get Joshua this spring, he’s quitting boxing.
Miller revealed on Twitter on Thursday that an undisclosed NFL team offered the 315-pound fighter a contract to retire from boxing and head into football.

While Miller towers like an NFL linebacker, the Brooklyn born boxer has no active record of every playing football at an organized level, but that has not stopped other athletes such as former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, who jumped from pro wrestling to the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings in 2004.
While Lesnar would be cut, Miller’s offer seems to be for at least seven figures, if it is more than what he’d be paid to fight the current unified heavyweight champion.
