National Football League free agency 2018: Allen Robinson headed to Bears, report says

13 March 2018

Chicago is expected to sign the wide receiver when the National Football League year begins at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early Tuesday.

While Robinson missed all but one game last season, there is no denying that he is still a hot commodity on the market this offseason.

Robinson, a second round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014, has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games. Those numbers were a drop-off from a sensational 2015 campaign, when Robinson had 80 catches for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 17.5 yards per catch in 16 starts.

He said: 'For me, it's a lot of teams out there who not only have interest in me, but who I have interest in. 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. He must get it right this year or the Bears, and his job, will be on unstable ground. Meredith is a restricted free agent. Injuries have allowed him to only play in 32 games over three seasons. The reward may very well be worth the risk however as Robinson is still just 24-years-old. Blake Bortles and he connected on just 50.7 percent of those targets, but they did amount to 2,283 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Adding receivers for Trubisky was a top priority for Pace. The Bears may not be done in free agency and/or the draft when it comes to solidifying the wide receiver position.

Buhari met with the herdsmen association Miyetti Allah, and appealed with the people in the state to apply restraint. Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has visited the gravesite of 73 people killed by Fulani herdsmen in Benue state.

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.

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.

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