Allen Robinson reportedly will sign with Bears

Robinson intends to sign with Chicago Bears on Wednesday when free agency opens, barring any last minute snags, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Wide receiver Allen Robinson will sign a three-year, $42 million deal with the Bears barring any last-minute issues before National Football League free agency opens Wednesday afternoon, he told ESPN late Monday night.

He should significantly upgrade the pass-catching options of a Bears team for whom Kendall Wright was the top receiver in 2017 with 59 catches for 614 yards. But in 2016, he had 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns while starting all 16 games.

Speaking on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio on Monday, Robinson singled out the Chicago Bears as a potential fit. He was a second-round pick by the Jaguars in 2014 and broke out in 2015 with 80 catches for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The 24-year-old pass-catcher suffered a torn ACL in Jacksonville's 2017 season opener. 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.

And the Black Panther director did not hold back: " Ava DuVernay is someone who makes the impossible look easy". Shockingly, the action movie had the second-best CinemaScore this weekend with a pretty terrible "B-".

Robinson also expressed interest in moving to Chicago.

The Bears have tendered restricted free agent WR Cameron Meredith at the original-round level.

Contract details have yet to be announced but according to Spotrac Robinson's market value is estimated at almost $14M a year over five seasons.

Trubisky had a solid season for the Bears previous year, completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,193 yards and seven touchdowns. But the expectations will be high considering his contract and potential. Jeffery left to become a Super Bowl champ in free agency.
