Just days before training camp begins, Anthony Miller is getting a new address.

The Chicago Bears are trading Miller to the Houston Texans, reports NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.

As part of the trade, the two clubs are making a late-round pick swap, adds Rapoport.

Miller seemed to confirm the move with a farewell message to the Bears on Instagram and an excited note to his new team on Twitter.

The Bears drafted Miller 51st overall in 2018. He hauled in seven touchdowns in his rookie year but was held to two scores in each of the following two seasons. Miller owns 1,564 career receiving yards but has never topped 656 yards in one campaign.

Miller is entering the final year of his contract.

The 26-year-old will now join a roster of journeyman playmakers in Houston. The Texans' receiving group includes Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Andre Roberts, Chris Conley, Donte Moncrief, and homegrown wideout Keke Coutee.

The Bears' wideout corps goes down a body. It's led by franchise-tagged star Allen Robinson who is now surrounded primarily by Riley Ridley, Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd, and Marquise Goodwin.
