Free agency has started, and NFL teams are talking trying to improve their squads.
The latest Chicago Bears news is that the organization is reportedly shopping 26-year-old slot receiver Anthony Miller.
"Bears are having trade discussions with other teams regarding WR Anthony Miller, per sources." ESPN's Adam Schefter said. "Miller is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is a productive and talented slot receiver likely to be dealt."
He's currently in the final year of his four-year rookie contract worth $5,353,700. He will be owed $1,210,050 for the 2021 season.
If the Bears decide to move him, it will save the team around $1 million in cap space.
In 2020, he played in all 16 games and caught 49 passes for 485 yards and two touchdowns. Overall in three seasons, he has 134 receptions for 1,564 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He was a second-round pick of the Bears in 2018.
It should be interesting to see if the Bears trade Miller and what type of return they get for the speedy wideout.
