The Bears Are Bringing A New AR-15 To Chicago
Wide receiver was one position the Bears could not afford to overlook in free agency this year. With Sammy Watkins signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, Robinson became the one Chicago needed.
Coming off a knee injury in 2017, Robinson makes some people nervous and rightly so. How many times have injured receivers hampered the Bears roster? More than we like to admit. Robinson is a beast and worth the risk.
Robinson caught a career-high 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns two seasons ago with Blake Bortles as his quarterback and as the number two receiver.
The Bears are expected to make more moves on offense before the draft.
Like signing free agent Albert Wilson from Kansas City. Again, wide receiver is clearly a need position for the Bears, and Wilson (5-foot-9, 200 pounds) set career highs with 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. His name has been mentioned since day one since Head Coach Matt Nagy has experience with him and vice versa.
The Bears will sign tight end Trey Burton to a four-year contract when the league season opens Wednesday, sources confirmed to the Sun-Times on Tuesday. The 26-year-old caught 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns last year, and notoriously threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Nick Foles in the Eagles’ title game victory.
