Robinson added he didn’t have any more updates on the progress between his camp and the Bears on a long-term deal and he’s prepared to play out the 2021 season on the tag if needed.
“I don’t have any updates. At the end of the day it’s out of my control,” he said via Dan Wiederer.
Robinson changed course and quickly signed his franchise tag worth $17.9 million for the 2021 season earlier this offseason. That means he’s under contract and would be subject to fines for any holdout.
The two sides have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal otherwise Robinson has to play out 2021 under the tag.
The Bears and Robinson have been negotiating for quite some time and it’s still unclear if they’ll be able to work anything out to keep Robinson in Chicago.
Robinson, 27, is a former second-round pick by the Jaguars back in 2014. He played out the final year of a four-year, $3.510 million rookie contract before agreeing to a three-year, $42 million contract with roughly $25 million guaranteed with the Bears back in 2018.
Robinson played out the final year of his contract and made a base salary of $10,900,000 for the 2020 season. Chicago franchise-tagged him for the 2021 season at $17.9 million
In 2020, Robinson appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and caught 102 passes for 1,250 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
