    Christopher James Miller (born August 9, 1965) is a former professional American football player who was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the 1st round (13th overall) of the 1987 NFL Draft. A 6'2", Script error: No such module "convert".. quarterback from the University of Oregon, Miller played in 10 NFL seasons from 1987–1995 and 1999. His best year as a pro came during the 1991 season for the Falcons when he threw for over 3000 yards and 26 touchdowns.

    Concussions prevented him from playing longer. After he suffered five in a span of 14 months, he left the league for the first time.[1] A concussion during his comeback with the Denver Broncos in 1999 convinced him that it was best to retire for good.[2] He was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.
