Twitter – Twitter reacts to the Bears trading WR Anthony Miller to Texans
The Chicago Bears are trading wide receiver Anthony Miller to the Houston Texans, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.
The trade doesn’t come as too much of a surprise following reports of the Bears shopping Miller this offseason, following a disappointing 2020 season and his ejection from the wild-card playoffs against the New Orleans Saints.
The Bears have made plenty of changes at the wide receiver position this offseason, including the additions of veterans Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd and rookie Dazz Newsome.
As you can imagine, Twitter had plenty of reactions to Miller being traded to the Texans. A lot of it wasn’t surprise given Miller never really lived up to the hype in Chicago.
The ultimate punishment in the NFL in 2021
Miller is a good slot receiver, can get open with ease. Makes Randall Cobb pretty redundant, but Texans get a look at a young player one year before free agency
Day 3 pick swap pretty much expected
Foresee a lot of Tarik Cohen in slot https://t.co/sZQBlMU8T0

Change is good for everyone involved here. But MAN if he lights it up in Houston…… https://t.co/N5qrrDYzTQ

Long time coming. Potential exceeded production because he became the opposite of dependable. Hard to miss what you never had; change of scenery might benefit Miller, who wore the Bears’ patience too thin. https://t.co/hzKUAvGJvp

If true, this makes a LOT of sense. Miller could shine with a change of scenery and the Bears can move on to some new blood and potential draft capital. https://t.co/65HkkSyLWp

This makes sense considering the Bears roster is loaded with receivers:
