3 Most Likely Anthony Miller Trade Destinations
A lot of changes have been going on with the Chicago Bears over the offseason. From bringing in a new quarterback in Andy Dalton to preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft, the Bears could be a different-looking team when the new season begins.
Another change could be incoming as it's been rumored that the Bears are shopping around wide receiver Anthony Miller. Not one to be shy about voicing his displeasure, Miller has been involved in trade rumors for a few weeks now.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport is now reporting that the Bears have been discussing trading Miller with other teams and that fans should stay tuned for a deal.
Anthony Miller had 49 receptions in 2020, converting that to 485 yards and 2 touchdowns. While his yards total was down last season, he did post a career-high 64.5 catch percentage. He's also on the last year of his rookie deal, making him an affordable option for teams looking to add a receiver.
Keeping that in mind, here are three likely destinations that Miller could end up in.
Anthony Miller Trade Destinations
3. Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions took a hit in free agency as they lost Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola. Now, their top receivers are Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman. With the team possibly using its first-round pick on a quarterback, Miller could be an affordable pass-catching option that they could acquire via trade. Miller could compliment Williams and Perriman nicely, and he's young enough (26) to fit in with the Lions young core.
2. Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles will enter the 2021 NFL Season with Jalen Reagor and Travis Fulgham as their top two receivers. Is that good enough to be competitive this season? Probably not, so Miller could be someone that the Eagles may want to look at. The team doesn't have too much experience at wide receiver, so the 26-year-old would be able to help with that despite being on his rookie deal.
1. Baltimore Ravens
If there's one team that needs receiving help, it's the Baltimore Ravens. While they had one of the more dangerous rushing attacks in the NFL in 2020, their passing game left a lot to be desired. The Ravens averaged just 171.9 receiving yards per game last season, which was dead last in the NFL. While they'll enter 2021 with Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins at the position, it's never a bad idea to have extra options.
