Prior to the 2021 NFL Draft, rumors came out about the Chicago Bears attempting to trade wide receiver, Anthony Miller. Miller is a 2018 second-round draft pick. He flashed the potential to become a breakout player in his rookie season when he finished with seven touchdowns.

Unfortunately, Miller’s second and third seasons did not meet expectations. Despite seeing 31 additional targets in his second season, Miller finished with only two touchdowns. He did increase his catches and yardage, but he lacked consistency. Mental lapses and running his mouth at times cost the Bears’ offense from building a rhythm at times too.

Over his first three seasons in the NFL, Anthony Miller has combined for 134 catches, 1,564 yards receiving yards, 12 touchdowns and a 62.3% catch rate percentage. Fans seem to think he has an issue with drops, which has not been the case. Although he has had some costly ones, overall, Anthony Miller has only 11 drops in three years. He has also come away with some exceptional catches during crucial times.

Are the Chicago Bears sticking with Anthony Miller or looking to trade him?

The Chicago Bears seem to be holding onto Anthony Miller now despite rumors of departing from the fourth-year wideout leading up to the 2021 NFL Draft. While looking at the Bears’ wide receivers, Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney are the top two. Anthony Miller is supposed to be the third option, but the team has brought in Damiere Byrd and Marquise Goodwin in free agency. They also drafted Dazz Newsome.

Even with Miller still on the roster, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy have brought in enough other options to send a message to Miller that he could either still be traded, or maybe even cut if he doesn’t start putting in the effort between game days. Here are five teams that could use wide receiver help and still might be interested in Miller prior to the start of the season.
