WASHINGTON (November 23, 2022) – D.C. United have signed goalkeeper Tyler Miller as a Free Agent. The Black-and-Red have signed Miller to a two-year deal through 2024.

“We are getting a proven MLS goalkeeper who has seven years of experience in this league,” Dave Kasper, D.C. United President of Soccer Operations, said. “He’s a great shot stopper and leader who also has the ability to play with his feet out of the back. We’re excited to add Tyler to our roster ahead of 2023 and add an important piece to our goalkeeper core.”

Miller joins the Black-and-Red after spending the previous three seasons with Minnesota United. The 6-foot-4-inch goalkeeper joined the Loons from Los Angeles FC on Jan. 6, 2020. He made his debut for Minnesota in a 3-1 win against the Portland Timbers on March 1, 2020. In three seasons, Miller recorded 122 saves and had 12 clean sheets. In 2022, the 29-year-old made three appearances with his last game for Minnesota coming on Aug. 31, 2022.

Prior to joining Minnesota, Miller spent two seasons with Los Angeles FC after being traded from the Seattle Sounders on Dec. 12, 2017. The goalkeeper made his debut for the club in their inaugural season on March 4, 2007, earning a clean sheet in the 1-0 win against the Seattle Sounders. In two seasons, Miller recorded 191 saves and earned 29 clean sheets in 64 MLS appearances.

Miller was drafted by the Seattle Sounders as the 33rd overall selection in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft after an impressive collegiate career with the Northwestern Wildcats in the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). The New Jersey native recorded 218 saves in 73 appearances across four seasons from 2011-2014 for Northwestern. After being drafted by Seattle, Miller opted to join SVN Zweibrücken in the German fourth division and signed with the club on Jan. 10, 2015. The goalkeeper made 10 appearances for the German side before signing with Seattle Sounders 2 on July 9, 2015. Miller made his MLS debut for the Seattle Sounders on March 12, 2016 and recorded seven saves in two appearances for the side over two seasons before joining LAFC.
