Anthony Miller | Chicago Bears Wide Receiver

Coming in as a rookie, Anthony Miller had high expectations. Many compared him to Antonio Brown and said he had the ability to be a star wide receiver. I saw it too. Even as a rookie, Miller had seven touchdowns in limited playing time. He started to blossom. Since then though, Miller has not lived up to it.

After 2019, many expected Miller to take the next step. Taylor Gabriel was now gone and Miller was the number two option after Allen Robinson. The first week, it looked like that had come true as Miller made an incredible catch to take the lead against the Detroit Lions. After that though, he fell off making multiple errors and falling out of favor to rookie Darnell Mooney and even Javon Wims.

To make matters worse, Miller should be cut for his actions against the New Orleans Saints. After sitting in front of the media telling them the Bears need to ignore Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Miller didn’t and threw a punch leading to a 15-yard penalty and ejection. He perhaps shouldn’t have been ejected, but even lashing out is extremely immature for a player in his third season. A mutual departing is looking like the best option here.
