The Chicago Bears have had two players severely hurt to a point their career was instantly over who I will never forget. The first was Johnny Knox. Knox suffered a horrible back injury and never played another down in the NFL. The second was Zach Miller, who caught a touchdown on the final play of his career. Yes, it was a damn touchdown. Miller dislocated his knee and tore his popliteal artery. He was taken to the hospital for emergency surgery to save his leg.

Well, now it appears that Zach Miller has found a second career. It is not what many people would expect. Apparently, Zach Miller is now a country singer. That’s right, he has three singles with another one expected to come out soon. Apparently, he has written approximately 50 songs now.

Former Chicago Bears tight end, Zach Miller has started a singing career

The first song he released was called “How Ya Like Us Now,” and it was a song written to the haters who never believed in him. These haters did not think he would make it to the NFL, but obviously, Zach Miller made it to the big show as he played for the Jaguars and the Chicago Bears. I listened to the song and although I’m not overly thrilled by his voice, the tune is catchy and I appreciate the lyrics.

His second song was much better. It was called “I was Hopin‘” and it was about a high school love who follows through time until a proposal takes place. I actually enjoyed his voice more in this song too. His third song was my least favorite. It is called “Torn Up” and seems to be about a breakup. That song was not one that I enjoyed and I would likely turn the station if it was playing on the radio. The other two, I’d listen to them both.

All I know, I am just glad to hear that Zach Miller has moved on and is doing well with his new love and passion. His songs will probably never top any charts, but as long as he is enjoying himself, that is all that matters. Who knows, maybe he builds up a huge following and surprises us Chicago Bears fans. In the meantime, enjoy the 2022 NFL Draft.
