Anthony Miller shares pictures, video from Bears rookie minicamp on Twitter

The Chicago Bears held their rookie minicamp on May 11- 13 and one of the most highly anticipated players in attendance was second-round wide receiver Anthony Miller.

Miller, whose personality matches his confident playing style, is fired up to be a Bear. It's obvious on social media and it's a great thing for the fans.

He took to Twitter to share pictures and a quick highlight video from the three days of workouts.

Miller is wearing the number made famous by Alshon Jeffery. He has big shoes to fill considering Jeffery was one of the franchise's all-time leading receivers. Miller said this offseason that he wants to create his own legacy, but it's hard to forget the dominance Jeffery displayed wearing the same digits.

Miller shared this video originally tweeted by the Bears' team account:

Miller was a standout at Memphis and set career-highs in 2017 with 96 catches, 1,462 yards and 18 touchdowns. He'll be in a fierce competition with Kevin White and Taylor Gabriel for playing time opposite Allen Robinson and should factor into the offense regardless of whether he's named a starter.

Under Center Podcast: Ha Ha, Bears a great fit for Clinton-Dix

It's been a almost a week since the Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix signing and it's still looking like a total win for the Bears. JJ Stankevitz, Cam Ellis and Paul Aspan on why the Bears appear to have gotten a bargain (1:00) , how Dix could be the perfect fit for this defense at this time, and the chemistry he'll have with former 'Bama teammate Eddie Jackson. Plus probably too much punter talk after the Bears bring back Pat O'Donnell (9:30), and some more edge rusher possibilities in the next wave of free agency (14:00). And of course an update on the Chicago Football Madness as 7-seed Alex Brown makes a desperate attempt to launch a comeback and avoid an upset against 10-seed Robbie Gould (22:10)

NBC's Chris Simms has Bears as #1 seed in NFC bracket

It's Bracket SZN. 

There are so many fun brackets to choose from right now. There's your standard NCAA bracket, our Chicago Football Madness bracket, and apparently NFC brackets? 

Chris Simms is doing them, at least, and the good news is that it's an excuse to write that someone thinks the Bears will be good! 

And just for good measure, here's Simms talking with Bears fan and fellow NBC analyst Roger Bennett:
