Texans Are Cutting Former Bears WR Anthony Miller

Chicago Bears

The surprise cuts keep coming.

First, it’s the Cowboys cutting linebacker Jaylon Smith. The next morning, it’s the Patriots parting ways with cornerback Stephon Gilmore. And not too long ago, a name Bears fans are familiar with is hitting the streets:

Well, Anthony Miller’s time in Houston didn’t last long.

Miller, who will turn 27 this week, was a second-round pick by the Bears in the 2018 NFL Draft. Miller caught 134 passes and 11 touchdowns in three seasons in Chicago. But inconsistent play and a kerfuffle with known irritant Chauncey Gardner-Johnson in the Bears’ playoff loss to the Saints helped expedite Miller’s departure from the team. For what it’s worth, Miller regrets throwing hands and being ejected from a playoff game. But it was too little, too late as Chicago sent Miller to Houston for a 2022 fifth-round draft pick in late July.

Miller appeared in two games with the Texans. He caught just five passes, but one of them was a touchdown. Maybe this tweet suggests he seems to have known that this morning’s move was coming judging by his tweet last night:

Otherwise, it’s an oddly timed tweet for a player who will be seeking employment with his third different team since the end of July.
