Colts likely to miss out on signing WR Allen Robinson

Sammy Watkins

The Chicago Tribune reported late Monday evening that the Bears - seeking a major upgrade at the position - considered Sammy Watkins of the Los Angeles Rams to be the top available wideout in free agency, but they've been rumored to have interest in Robinson for weeks.

The details of Allen Robinson's pending contract with the Chicago Bears have been revealed, and according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, it's a three-year deal worth $42 million. Robinson's signing won't be official until Wednesday, but if he ends with the Bears he would immediately become the top receiver for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

If you didn't have a chance to read that, take a look (LINK). After that, restricted free agents who earn tenders are only allowed to negotiate with the franchise they played for this past season. He had career bests of 24 receptions, 376 yards and a 15.7-yard average per catch last season.

Kendall Wright led the team's receiving game last season, with just 614 yards on 59 catches, and no other player could beat Tarik Cohen's 353 receiving yards.

Robinson will walk into an immediate No. 1 role with the Bears, who are now project to start Robinson and Kevin White on the perimeter, with Cameron Meredith in the slot.

Aside from Akiem Hicks, Pace's free-agent signings leave much to be desired.

Trubisky had a solid season for the Bears past year, completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,193 yards and seven touchdowns.

This signing will be tied directly to the evaluation of Pace in his fourth season with his second head coach and a 14-34 record. It was the most in the National Football League, with fellow free agent Sammy Watkins being the only other receiver to top 558 yards on deep balls that year. Now we wait to see if Robinson can play like it.
