Reid Miller is getting an NFL opportunity.

The former University of Montana safety has received an invite to the New Orleans Saints’ rookie minicamp. The Grizzlies announced Miller’s invite in a Twitter post on Sunday.

Miller, a 5-foot-10, 208-pound safety from Hollidaysburg, Pa., had 68 total tackles last season to go along with two forced fumbles and two interceptions. It was his lone season at UM after transferring from the University of Arkansas, where he played in 37 games from 2015-17.

Miller is the third known player with Montana ties to receive an invite to an NFL rookie minicamp. Rocky Mountain College’s Darneail Jenkins and Troy Bacon will also attend camps, Jenkins with the Eagles and Bacon with the Saints.

NFL teams are permitted to hold three-day post-draft rookie minicamps, which essentially serve as tryouts for many undrafted rookies.
