The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed wide receiver Anthony Miller to a future contract for the 2022 season, the team announced this week.
Miller, 27, joined the Steelers’ practice squad on Oct. 12 and spent the rest of the season there. He was elevated to the active roster once, playing in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. In that game, he caught his lone target for two yards.
Before joining then Steelers, Miller last played for the Houston Texans as recently as Week 4. Miller caught five passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in two games with Houston in 2021. He was released by the Texans on Oct. 6.
A second-round selection of the Chicago Bears in 2018, Miller played 49 games over three seasons with the Bears, catching 139 passes for 1,587 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was a part-time starter for Chicago in both 2019 and 2020. His best season came in 2019, when he caught 52 passes for 656 yards and two scores. He averaged 11.7 yards per catch in Chicago.
Miller is the fourth wide receiver that the Steelers have signed to a future contract for 2022, joining Rico Bussey, Steven Sims and Tyler Vaughns.
That position appears poised to undergo some changes this offseason, with Ray-Ray McCloud, JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Washington all hitting free agency.
