Offseason workouts for the defending NFC North champion Chicago Bears won’t begin for another 13 days, but Anthony Miller has me ready to press fast forward:
Miller caught 33 passes for 423 yards and scored seven touchdowns as a rookie in 2018. Oh, and as Miller pointed out, he did it mostly with just one arm. All things considered, that’s an impressive campaign for the Memphis product as a first-year player.
Remember, Miller suffered a shoulder shoulder in the Bears’ Week 3 win against the Cardinals. And while that would have put other players on the shelf for a significant amount of time, Miller missed just one game. Then after two weeks of non-contact, Miller returned for Week 6 against the Dolphins and didn’t miss any more time … until the shoulder was re-injured in Week 17 against the Vikings. Even after that injury, Miller came back for the Bears’ playoff game. The heart and determination to make that happen should not be overlooked.
Miller underwent offseason shoulder surgery and won’t be available for OTAs, but that won’t stop us from being pumped about his future. Just look at some of these catches:
Poor Buster Skrine. He really didn’t have a chance against that throw from Mitch Trubisky and that route by Anthony Miller. Later this month, they’ll officially start working together toward a common goal – winning a Super Bowl in Chicago. Let’s get it!
