Jaguars WR Robinson to sign with Bears

Bears Packers battling for Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins

Bears Packers battling for Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins

Robinson is coming off tearing an ACL in his left knee on the third play from scrimmage in the Jacksonville Jaguars' season-opening 29-7 win over the Houston Texans.

In 2015 and 2016 combined, the only receivers with more touchdowns than Robinson were Odell Beckham Jr., Antonio Brown and Doug Baldwin. He was a second-round draft pick of the Jags out of Penn State in 2012. With young quarterback Blake Bortles throwing them the football, it gave fans some hope the for the future that they had a solid nucleus.

Robinson's departure may impact the statuses of fellow wide receivers Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee.

Because of that, everyone knew Ryan Pace was going to aggressively target a wide receiver in free agency. Terms of Robinson's deal are unknown as of this posting. And it's also worth a mention that the Chicago Bears managed just 13 scores through the air in 2017 - tied for the fewest in the league with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Chicago Bears are expected to make big moves this offseason in order to put themselves closer to becoming one of the top Super Bowl contenders next season.

Grade: B. Burton, 26, is an athletic, pass-catching tight end who had 23 receptions for 248 yards and five touchdowns last regular season.

Their troubles in the passing game were compounded further by leading receiver Cameron Meredith's 2016 ACL injury before the start of the season.

Restricted free agents are players with three accrued seasons.

I'm out: WR Sammy Watkins, who spent 2017 with the Rams, has reportedly agreed to a three-year free agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. White and Wheaton were busts, Eddie Royal didn't pan out and neither did Cruz.
