The Chicago Bears have traded wide receiver Anthony Miller to the Houston Texans in a deal that includes a swap of late-round draft picks, multiple outlets reported.

Miller, 26, is in the final year of his rookie deal, which he signed after the Bears traded up to take him in the second round in 2018.

Miller had 49 catches for 485 yards and two touchdowns last season. He was tossed from the Bears’ 21-9 loss in an NFC Wild Card game against the New Orleans Saints last January after shoving defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson in the second half.

For his career, Miller has 134 catches for 1,564 yards and 11 scores in three seasons.

Miller apparently endorsed the move with a tweet late Saturday that read “Houston Let’s Get It!!!!!!”

The Texans now have 13 wide receivers on their roster, including 2021 third-rounder Nico Collins.
