Peyton Miller Signs First-Team Contract, Will Join Roster in 2024
The Connecticut native becomes the youngest player to sign a first-team contract with the Revolution
Less than three months after becoming the youngest player to make their Revolution II debut, Peyton Miller has become the youngest player to sign a New England Revolution first-team contract.
On Monday, the highly-touted left back from Unionville, Connecticut signed with the Revolution and will join the first team roster in 2024. Frank Del’Appa of the Boston Globe was first to report the story.
“Next year he’ll be a first-team player, positioning himself to get some minutes probably the following year,” Revolution technical director Curt Onalfo told Del’Appa.
Miller is still relatively new to MLS Next Pro, debuting in March for Revolution II and making only 11 appearances. However, his performances were enough for four call-ups to the United States Youth National Teams, most recently for the U-17 team training camp. His standout performances also were enough the Revolution to advance him in the organization.
“He’s pushed up the timeline,” said Onalfo per Del’Appa." “We put him in the environment and he just thrived.”
Per an official team release, Miller has signed a four-year contract with the team, with a fifth-year team option in 2028. Miller joins his Revolution II teammate Santiago Suarez as players who will join the first-team for 2024.
