Allen Robinson was the top wide receiver target of the offseason and will now sign with the Chicago Bears. Robinson gets a good contract coming off of a knee injury and needed to go somewhere that he can be a true number one receiver. The Bears need someone for Mitchell Trubisky to throw the ball to as he continues to grow into an NFL quarterback.
The Bears can now look more into cornerbacks in the NFL draft because they have checked off their number one receiver box. This won’t stop them from drafting another receiver on day two as it is a deep position and they could still use receiving help, but it doesn’t mean that they have to take one with the eighth overall pick in this draft. With Robinson, Trubisky and Jordan Howard, the Bears’ offense should be fun to watch in the coming years. The Bears still aren’t contenders in the NFC North with this move, but it is a move in the right direction and if they have good drafts in 2018 and 2019, the Bears could be a force in the coming years.
