Bears expected to sign wide receiver Allen Robinson

Bears expected to sign wide receiver Allen Robinson

However, if the Bears choose not to match an offer sheet for Meredith, Bellamy or Callahan, they would receive no compensation. ESPN's Josina Anderson later reported the terms of the expected deal to be three years, $42 million.

But if he's healthy to start offseason activities and if he can stay that way, then Robinson will bring a lot of things that will help a young quarterback such as Mitch Trubisky.

Here's an updated and running look at the Chicago Bears' 2018 Free Agency Big Board that Bears Wire posted before the legal tampering period began on Monday.

It would have been nice to add Robinson to a promising Colts offense that already included T.Y. Hilton, Andrew Luck, Jack Doyle and Marlon Mack but there wasn't any noise linking the organization to the 24-year-old wide receiver. The benefit to him is he'll be 27 when it expires and set up for a big deal if his play merits it.

Trubisky showed some promise in his rookie season, but with the Bears hiring offensive guru Matt Nagy as their new head coach and signing a true No. 1 wideout in Robinson, the pressure will be on him to make strides in Year 2.




Well, he officially will on Wednesday.

He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Week 1. But in 2016, he had 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns while starting all 16 games.

The Jacksonville Jaguars could have given Allen Robinson the franchise tag, but decided against it. Check out Dan Durkin's film breakdown of Robinson. I mentioned this on the free agent primer podcast we did last week, saying that he wouldn't have competition for targets with the Bears, whereas if he went to the 49ers, he'd be competing for targets with Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin, and even Trent Taylor at times.

Robinson's injury paired with the Jaguars' tight salary cap situation led to him hitting the open market.

Restricted free agents are players with three accrued seasons. At first glance, this contract seems right for Robinson who has to prove he can rebound from the injury, while also showing that he is closer to the 2015 version than the one in 2016 who averaged 5.4 fewer yards per catch. The Bears also are interested in receiver Albert Wilson.
