Bears, Allen Robinson Headed Towards Three-Year, $42M Deal

Bears free agency tracker The top potential targets for Ryan Pace

The Bears already have a stable starting quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky, but they still need to surround him with more weapons to make him more risky.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news early Tuesday morning which was followed up by the network's Josina Anderson reporting the terms of the expected three-year deal worth $42million, an annual average that would tie for eighth-largest among current wideout contracts.

Mitch Trubisky has a brand-new weapon. This likely wasn't a "bid against themselves" situation like the Bears found themselves in with Mike Glennon last season. A source close to Robinson confirmed it.

If the numbers are accurate, it's contract that reflects Robinson's potential as well as his question marks. The veteran missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL. Blanton said that Robinson's skill set would make him a flawless partner for Trubisky because of his ability to make big plays for his team. He saw a lofty 302 targets over 2015 and 2016, a number that only six other wide receivers surpassed in those two combined seasons, though those targets were far from what we'd call ideal.

The Penn State product had a breakout season in 2015 when he caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards with 14 touchdowns playing with Blake Bortles.

Robinson, a second round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014, has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games.

But at 24, Robinson fits the Bears' rebuilding plans.

Receiver was a glaring need. It didn't go well.

He said the authorities of the assembly have been directed to go through the records of the proceedings and submit a report. Earlier, the address was marred by slogan-shouting Congress members who accused the TRS government of being "anti-farmer".

Robinson is coming off a knee injury, but Blanton is still convinced that signing him will bring more good than harm to the Bears. Wheaton was a bust with only three catches.

Kendall Wright led the team's receiving game last season, with just 614 yards on 59 catches, and no other player could beat Tarik Cohen's 353 receiving yards.

And if nothing else, Trubisky now has his No.1 wideout. Needless to say, Robinson is one of the safest wide receivers you can draft from a floor standpoint. He pointed out that Robinson is still one of the top wide receivers in the league because he can keep the defense guessing. The Bears also are interested in receiver Albert Wilson. After that, restricted free agents who earn tenders are only allowed to negotiate with the franchise they played for this past season. The reward may very well be worth the risk however as Robinson is still just 24-years-old.

Robinson is a big target for Trubisky at 6-foot-3, 211 pounds and he can run.

Robinson joins Pernell McPhee, Danny Trevathan and Glennon as opening splash free-agent signings for Pace. Jeffery left to become a Super Bowl champ in free agency.

Adding receivers for Trubisky was a top priority for Pace.

Bottom line, you don't bring in a player like Robinson to be a decoy.
