The Jets have a big need at wide receiver. The lost Robby Anderson in free agency, and sit without a true number one receiver. Anthony Miller is not a number one receiver, but he would be a great fit in New York. He would give Sam Darnold a young weapon to throw to besides Denzel Mims and Jamison Crowder.
The Bears see plenty of potential in Anthony Miller, and many expect him to make a big jump this season. The Jets would be getting a quality young playmaker who has the potential to be a stud at receiver.
Losing Miller would hurt the Bears offense, but they have plenty of players ready to make the jump. Along with Allen Robinson, the Bears have Javon Wims, Riley Ridley, Darnell Mooney, Ted Ginn, and Cordarelle Patterson who can all produce well. None are quite as skilled as Miller is or can be, but it would not be a super big loss for the Bears.
The Jets would also receive an able replacement for Jamal Adams in Tashaun Gipson. Gipson was signed by the Bears this offseason, which means if the Bears send him to New York he would not have played a single snap in Chicago. Still, he is a very underrated player and can give the Jets enough production to offset the loss of Adams a little bit.
The first-round pick is the sweetener that could entice the Jets to pull the trigger. Again, they are looking for young, controllable players, so any picks would be a bonus. Receiving Miller, Gipson, and the first is very good value for a player that does not want to be on the team anymore.
The Bears would be losing two valuable players, but nobody that is a must keep. It might be worth it though because Jamal Adams and Eddie Jackson would be a dream pairing at safety. The havoc they would cause could definitely be worth trading for him.
