It appears the Chicago Bears are once again making moves in their wide receiver room. After tagging disgruntled star Allen Robinson this past week, the team is now looking to move on from starting slot receiver Anthony Miller. The Bears are actively looking to trade Miller, Adam Schefter reports.

Looking to trade a young slot receiver may seem peculiar, but the situation actually makes a great deal of sense. Miller actively spoke about his frustrations with play-calling during the 2020 season. Prior reports also indicate Miller has experienced difficulty mastering the route tree and has built tension with the coaching staff.

Miller has shown a ton of promise, but with an expiring contract and potential issues behind the scenes, the team can look to move him while he is still valued around the league. Expect this situation to be handled swiftly.

Miller, the 51st overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, finished the 2020 season with 49 receptions for 485 yards and two touchdowns. In his career, he has hauled in 134 receptions for 1,564 yards and 11 touchdowns.

UPDATE – 4/7/21, 2:30 PM CT: Per Ian Rapoport, the Bears are in discussions with multiple teams regarding an Anthony Miller trade.
