Bears Shopping WR Anthony Miller

The Bears do not know who their starting quarterback will be yet, but they might have determined one player will not fit in their 2021 passing attack.

Chicago is discussing Anthony Miller in trades, Adam Schefter of tweets. The former second-round pick is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Miller is due a $1.21MM base salary next season. He is likely to be dealt, Schefter adds.

Allen Robinson is back, via the franchise tag, and the Bears also have Darnell Mooney coming back as a supporting-caster. The Bears traded up for Mooney last year. While Miller would seemingly fit as an additional auxiliary option and is not a financial hindrance, Bears brass evidently has seen enough to dangle him in trade talks.

Although Miller has battled injuries as a pro, he has only missed one game since the Bears drafted him. The slot option has only eclipsed 500 receiving yards in one of his three seasons, but Chicago’s quarterback situation — largely a Mitchell Trubisky-led setup during Miller’s tenure — did not exactly make for the best environment for a young receiver to develop. It will be interesting to see what the Bears can collect in a deal for the 26-year-old target.

    The only team I see wanting him is the Bears. Maybe Pace can fleece them by offering 2 firsts and a second in 2021. This way both parties win and the idiots in charge won’t realize what just happened!

    According to the player link Miller is 55 yrs old so I can understand why the Bears would want to shop him.

      Hahaha the bears would have a 55 year old receiver, for how much I love the team, I absolutely hate the team

    He has talent but it’s impossible to tell if it’s coaching, QB play, his own limitations or all three that have kept him from developing. Doubt anyone trades anything of value for him.

    Keep him Daulton can get him the ball if we get a Left Tackle Leno goes on the right side Bar could be the rT but Must at center Daniels & Whiteheads at guard S I hope the kid from Northwestern get to the bears. Or the kid from Michigan

  5. Was Miller the guy who got ejected twice for that cheap shot punch and then fighting again the next game vs the Saints, or was that someone else? I can’t remember for sure, but if it was him then I can see why the Bears are no longer interested.
