After seeing him tear his ACL, the Houston Texans quickly opted for other options to replace Lamar Miller. The Texans ended up with two veterans with opposite builds, yet Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson were able to get the job done collectively.

Miller, while coming off a serious injury, would be worth a minimal deal. In Chicago, his style would fit right in. He is also a dual-threat back like the previous two guys on this list.

With someone like Montgomery taking the lead role, it would put very little pressure on Miller to be what he once was. But, if he is indeed healthy, his skillset would come in handy.

In every season outside of his rookie campaign, Miller has finished with at least 25 receptions, and in three of them, he finished with more than 35. Like Washington, his catch percentage is impressive at 77 percent.

Miller is a savvy back with decent speed and vision, who really does a lot of things at an above average level. He isn’t going to ever blow you away, but the former Pro Bowl running back offers the Bears everything they want in Nagy’s offense.
