"It wasn't anything we saw from the Rams, we just had opportunities to make plays and we did", Burton told Eagles reporter Dave Spadaro afterward.

The Bears will also sign kicker Cody Parkey, who connected on 21 of 23 FG attempts (91.3 percent) previous year for the Miami Dolphins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Robinson once had a 1,400-yard season in which he led the league in touchdowns while catching passes from Blake Bortles.at the age of 22.

Bears signed TE Trey Burton, formerly of the Eagles, to a four-year, $32 million contract.

Burton served as the backup to Zach Ertz, who caught the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl LII.

If healthy, the 24-year-old receiver would give the Bears their first genuine playmaker at wide receiver since Alshon Jeffery left for the Eagles last offseason.

The undersized (6-foot-3, 235-pound) Burton projects as a "move" tight end for the Bears, where he will be much more of pass catcher than a blocker.

He'll join a tight end group that includes 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen. But in 2016, with Ertz missing some time, Burton had 37 receptions for 327 yards and an 8.8-yard average.

He'll also find himself on Super Bowl highlight reels for years to come after throwing a touchdown pass to Eagles quarterback Nick Foles on a perfectly executed trick play during the team's 41-33 championship triumph over the New England Patriots.
