Miller had a rough season for the Chicago Bears

Dud #3: Anthony Miller

Anthony Miller did have the season that many were hoping for the third-year wideout. After having a really solid first two seasons to build upon, Miller seemed to have taken a step back in 2020. Coming into the year Miller was thought of as the clear number two target in the pass-game.

However, this was quickly not the case. Rookie receiver Darnell Mooney was slowly but surely building trust with the coaching staff and eventually started receiving more snaps than Miller. Mooney ended up with more targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns than Miller.

Anthony Miller has a lot of talent but had a problem with drops this year as well. Miller is now going into his fourth year and still has one more year on his contract. With his poor play combined with how his season ended, getting ejected in a playoff game, his future isn’t guaranteed on this team.

I feel that the Bears should hold on to Miller, not only is he still very young but he is on a very very cheap deal. The Chicago Bears may also be without their top target next season in Allen Robinson. Losing Miller would just be yet another hole on an offense with plenty of them.
