Although his stock is not very high, the Chicago Bears could move Anthony Miller

Another player that the Chicago Bears should consider trying to move on from is Anthony Miller. Miller has had some great success throughout his three-year career, but he has been very inconsistent. While showing great hands, Miller has proven he has not put the time and effort into the mental part of the game. Too often we see him running the wrong route and that is just not acceptable.

The final straw for the Chicago Bears probably came during the Bears playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. Fuller got into it with Saints cornerback C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Fuller threw a punch and was ejected after the team spent time discussing the importance of ignoring Gardner-Johnson. He is the same corner who has a history of causing trouble, including when Javon Wims got ejected earlier in the season when these two teams met in the regular season.

Moving on from Miller is not a big financial decision. Miller is in the last year of his rookie contract and only owed $1.7 million this season. Miller was a highly-coveted second-round pick and despite his recent struggles, I would not be surprised if a team would take a chance on him in their system. Miller has shown enough flashes that the Chicago Bears should be able to get a fifth or sixth-round pick.
