Robinson reportedly set to join Bears

There was no flawless solution to the Bears' problems at wide receiver in free agency, but Robinson had the best pedigree of the group.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news early Tuesday morning which was followed up by the network's Josina Anderson reporting the terms of the expected three-year deal worth $42million, an annual average that would tie for eighth-largest among current wideout contracts. He was targeted the same amount of times as he was in 2015 (151 times) but his yardage and touchdown numbers dropped off: 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns.

With former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy replacing John Fox as head coach and the signing of Robinson, the Bears will hope for a significant upturn in production from an offense that finished 30th in the National Football League last season.

Through his first three offseasons Pace's free-agent track record isn't good.

Robinson also expressed interest in moving to Chicago.

He suffered a season-ending torn ACL and sprained MCL in his left knee in the third preseason game previous year but is expected to be on the field when training camp begins.

The Bears have tendered restricted free agent WR Cameron Meredith at the original-round level. Robinson is considered one of the best receivers in recent seasons to hit the open market because players of his caliber and age are usually kept via the franchise tag. Robinson is the type of player who can make sideline catches and be a weapon in the red zone.

Trubisky had a solid season for the Bears past year, completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,193 yards and seven touchdowns. Jeffery left to become a Super Bowl champ in free agency. Now we wait to see if Robinson can play like it.
