Anthony Miller still on the trade block

Earlier today the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport Tweeted out that the Chicago Bears are still shopping wide receiver Anthony Miller, and that they have been in discussions with “a number of teams.”

Word first leaked about the Bears shopping Miller last month when free agency was just starting to heat up, so now that the market has settled a bit, it appears possible that some teams are looking to revisit acquiring the former 2nd-round selection.

Miller is the Bears third wide out, so if he’s moved that could open up some playing time for former 4th-round draft pick Riley Ridley.

The Bears may also look to the draft to add some competition as this is another deep and talented receiver class. Chicago’s top two wide outs seem set right now with second-year pro Darnell Mooney returning to join the recently franchise tagged Allen Robinson.

My guess is the most the Bears could get back in a trade would be a 6th or 7th, perhaps with some conditional language added to it. The Bears may also look to package Miller with one of their four 6th-rounders to move up the board a bit.
