Steelers WR Anthony Miller

All 90 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 90 members of the Steelers 2022 offseason roster.

17 • Anthony Miller, fourth-year wide receiver, Memphis
5-foot-11, 199 pounds

Acquired: The Steelers signed Miller to their practice squad on Oct. 12, 2021 and then re-signed him to a future contract for the 2022 season this January.

Last season: Traded from the Chicago Bears to the Houston Texans in July. He played in two games with Houston, making five catches for 23 yards and a touchdown, before being released on Oct. 6.

The Steelers signed him to their practice squad and he was elevated to the active roster for one game at Cincinnati on Nov. 28. He caught one pass for two yards.

CareerThe Bears’ second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Miller was a three-year regular in Chicago from 2018-20. He scored seven touchdowns as a rookie and led Chicago in receptions (52) and receiving yards (656) in 2019. While in Chicago, Miller’s quarterback was current Steelers starter Mitch Trubisky.

College: Originally a walk-on, Miller redshirted his first season and was injured his entire second season. He broke out as a redshirt sophomore in 2015, when he caught 47 passes for 694 yards and two touchdowns.

He then set (14 in 2016) and broke (18 in 2017) the Memphis single-season record for receiving touchdowns and after posting back-to-back 1,400-yard seasons to finish his Memphis career. He was a two-time All-AAC selection and a consensus All-American in 2017.

Camp outlook: With JuJu Smith-Schuster and Ray-Ray McCloud moving on in free agency, there appears to be an opening at slot receiver, with three experienced NFL options in Miller, Gunner Olszewski and Steven Sims vying to fill the slot.

Future: Miller singed a one-year contract that is not guaranteed and will earn $1.035 million if he is on the active roster. He will be a free agent in 2023.
