Report: Bears discussing Anthony Miller trade

A potential big trade could be in the works. The Bears have been discussing a deal involving receiver Anthony Miller with a “number of teams,” Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets.

We heard a few weeks ago that the Bears were shopping him, and it sounds like they’re receiving some real interest. Chicago franchise tagged Allen Robinson, and Darnell Mooney broke out last season, making Miller expendable. He’s heading into the final year of his rookie deal, and the team clearly wants to get something for him before he’d presumably walk in free agency.

The 51st overall pick of the 2018 draft, Miller has flashed plenty of big-time potential but has never been able to fully deliver on it. He’s only missed one pro game but has dealt with serious shoulder issues that have limited him in the past. He caught seven touchdowns as a rookie, then had 52 catches for 652 yards in 2019.

This past season his production dipped, as he had 49 receptions for 485 yards and two touchdowns. The less than 10 yards a reception isn’t great, and his stock likely took a hit. Still, he’s only 26 and signed very cheaply for 2021, so it’s not surprising that teams are engaging in discussions. He could be an intriguing flier with some real upside for a team in need of pass-catching help.
