5 Chicago Bears players who won NFL draft wekeend 2021
2. Anthony Miller and Javon Wims
The bash brothers, who have their issues with C.J. Gardner-Johnson. There was a real chance in January that neither of these players would be on the roster week one. Now, every day that goes by the chances increases that they are on the roster.
Wims did not get the scolding of the owner that Miller did. Beyond that, Wims beat out Riley Ridley for special teams snaps and has consistently gotten on the field over him. With the Bears drafting Dazz Newsome, it is bad news for Riley Ridley if anyone. Still, Newsome is competition for just Ridley and may not be an upgrade there, so for Javon Wims, he has to feel unthreatened.
If the Bears were going to trade Anthony Miller, the best time to do it was this past weekend. His making it through the weekend gives Chicago even less leverage as there are much fewer assets for them to acquire now. Them keeping him so long means they will not give him away for anything. Perhaps they do have intentions of keeping him.
