Allen Robinson reportedly will sign with Chicago Bears in free agency


Former Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson will be suiting up with a new NFL team next season. Robinson will be signing with the Chicago Bears in free agency, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Robinson played the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

And just as the first QB domino has fallen with Case Keenum to Denver, the first WR donino now has fallen with Allen Robinson intending to go to Chicago.

Robinson was maybe the most-coveted wide receiver in free agency this offseason. The former Nittany Lion had a breakout campaign in 2015, making 80 grabs for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns while earning a Pro Bowl selection. Robinson followed it up with an 883-yard, 6-touchdown season in 2016.

His 2017 season was derailed by injury, however. Robinson tore his left ACL after making his first catch of the season in Week 1.

It appears Robinson will be healthy and ready to play by the beginning of the 2018 season. He posted a video on Twitter earlier this week of him doing workouts.

Robinson can sign with the Bears as soon as Wednesday. He could very well become the go-to target for second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Robinson will also be reuniting with former Penn State teammate Adrian Amos in the Windy City.
