Who will be returning at wide receiver for the Chicago Bears in 2021?

Allen Robinson is expected to be a free agent. The Bears should try to tag this elite wide receiver and work out a contract with him, but if they don’t wide receiver becomes a major hole for them. They have Darnell Mooney, but he isn’t expected to be a “WR1” just yet.

With both Anthony Miller and Javon Wims showing they can’t control themselves, will they be returning? Wims made a mistake, but Miller made it again after the team discussed not doing it again. Miller hasn’t shown much in terms of talent at wide receiver to warrant him possibly getting away with this, so could he even be on the Bears next season?

Will the Bears finally see Riley Ridley? Mr. Inactive hardly dresses for games and even when he does dress he doesn’t see the field. If both Wims and Miller are cut, maybe we can finally see Ridley in action and see if he is worth anything to the team.

They should address the position via the draft or free agency or both. Their depth is lacking and they need an upgrade at slot with Miller never being consistent or reliable.
