Allen Robinson Intends to Sign With Bears in Free Agency

Robinson missed virtually all of last season after he suffered a torn ACL in the very first game of the year.

Robinson, who missed nearly all of last season after suffering a torn ACL in the opening game, is reportedly set to sign a three-year $42million contract with the Bears after being allowed to hit free agency by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Robinson, breaking out in a big way in 2015 with 80 receptions, 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, only turns 25 in August. The veteran wide receiver is expected to get a lot of attention on the market, and Blanton said that Chicago should do a "full court press" to land Robinson this offseason. He posted 73 catches for 883 yards with six touchdowns in the following season.

Note: the restricted free agency period ends on April 20.

Just like Meredith and Bellamy, slot corner Bryce Callahan earned an original round tender at $1.907 million from the Bears on Monday. Injuries have allowed him to only play in 32 games over three seasons. They reportedly were targeting Sammy Watkins, too, but the former No. 4 overall pick is heading to Matt Nagy's former team, the Chiefs, according to ESPN and NFL Network, with a contract that is worth more per year than Robinson's. To know that he did that without anything close to a top-tier wide receiver is impressive, though it's still a relatively small sample size.

That's more than top exporter Saudi Arabia producers and almost as much as Russian Federation pumps out, at nearly 11 million bpd. Crude oil prices fell Monday ahead of closely watched U.S. inflation data that may set the stage for interest rate hikes.

Robinson also expressed interest in moving to Chicago.

How do you feel about the current state of the Bears?

Just one Bears wide receiver - Kendall Wright, who is a free agent - caught more than 24 passes in 2017. Needless to say, Robinson is one of the safest wide receivers you can draft from a floor standpoint.

Robinson has great size for the outside and go-up-and-get-it abilities, a skill set the Bears sorely lacked last season after Alshon Jeffery left in free agency. Now we wait to see if Robinson can play like it.
