Chicago Bears willing to trade TE Zach Miller??

According to Michael Lombardi from The Ringer NFL Show, The Chicago Bears told teams at the scouting combine earlier this year that if they drafted a tight end in the draft, they could be willing to deal tight end Zach Miller. The Bears did draft a tight end. They drafted Ashland’s Adam Shaheen in the second round. Zach Miller who is 32 finished the 2016 season on injured reserve after suffering a broken foot in Week 11. In his two seasons with the Bears, Miller has averaged 52 catches for 592 yards and four touchdowns on a per 16-game rate. Miller is entering the final year of his contract. The Bears would incur $500K in dead money if they trade Miller. The Bears also signed free agent tight end Dion Sims to a three-year, $18MM deal in the offseason that included $6MM in guaranteed money. Other tight ends on the Bears roster include Ben Braunecker, Daniel Brown, and MyCole Pruitt.
