Bears & WR Allen Robinson Resume Contract Talks


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears and WR Allen Robinson have resumed contract talks after a bit of a tumultuous week.Allen Robinson

According to Rapoport, there is still a “significant gap” to close before a deal is in place, but it’s at least an encouraging sign that they’re back to negotiating a new deal.

Robinson recently removed all references to the Bears off his social media, including photos of him in a Bears jersey. His teammate, RB Tarik Cohen, also started an #ExtendAR hashtag which teammates supported. 

Robinson has grown frustrated with the state of contract negotiations, but has not officially requested a trade from the Bears. 

Robinson stated earlier this offseason that his preference was to stay with the Bears long-term. 

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 is entering the final year of his contract and stands to make a base salary of $10,900,000 for the 2020 season. 

Robinson caught five passes for 74 yards in Sunday’s season-opening win against the Lions. 

In 2019, Robinson appeared in 16 games for the Bears and caught 98 passes for 1,147 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
