Default WR Anthony Miller Acquired via Trade with Bears

WR Anthony Miller was traded from the Bears for a future late round pick. Miller had been apparently seeking a trade out of Chicago for quite some time.

He was 51st pick in 2018 draft, and while over-drafted, it gives some sense to his possible upside. Across the 2018-20 seasons, he amassed 134-1,564-11. $1.7M on final year of rookie contract of which the Bears eat $493,400 in dead money, so only $1.2M hit to the Texans cap.

Miller was recruited to Memphis as an athletic high school hurdler and had a 39" vertical at pro day (which would have put him in the top 3 at that year's combine iirc). He also ran sub 4.5 forty at the pro day. He's 5'11" 190#, so probably projects as an inside or slot receiver, but who knows that height and weight is pretty similar to Brandin Cooks.

Makes me wonder if they knew they would most likely be trading Cobb yesterday...

The draft capital involved in the Anthony Miller trade:
* Chicago trades Anthony Miller and a 2022 7th round pick
* Houston trades a 2022 5th round pick
