It’s not necessarily a sign that he’s a future Pro Bowler, but if Chicago Bears rookie Anthony Miller ever does get to the NFL’s annual All-Star game, he’ll have a neat trick to show off.

Juggling act

During Bears’ practice on Thursday, Miller lined up to catch punts – but after he caught them, he tucked them away, not tossing them aside or handing them to a ball boy.

Once he had two footballs tucked into his left arm, Miller started catching the punts one-handed. And for the sixth punt, Miller had a ball tucked between his knees and hopped to his right to catch the incoming ball, which thankfully was pretty on-target.


According to NFL Network’s James Palmer, that’s a Bears camp record.
