Robinson is showing progression in his time with the Chicago Bears.

The two notable quarterbacks Robinson played with, Blake Bortles and Mitch Trubisky, were both young and seen some regression. Robinson turned out two 1000+ yard seasons, one each with both quarterbacks. He’s played with multiple offensive coordinators,  adjusting to different regimes in a short amount of time.

Just like his young quarterback in Chicago, Robinson is out with something to prove. He needs to find a long-term solution for his career. Whether it’s with Chicago or a team that’s willing to seal the deal. For Chicago’s sake, signing Robinson to an extension in the upcoming season can serve as a win-win for right now.

From 2018 on out, he’s been improving in Chicago. After last year it was expected for him to settle into debates as a top receiver in the league. That’s largely due to the fact he’s delivering despite who’s throwing the ball to him and what they’re going through.

Coming into the 2020-21 season, Robinson still stands as the Bears WR1. His style of play should be hungry this year. It’s a contract year for him and his fourth-year quarterback as well. It’s a lot at stake for the legitimacy of a Matt Nagy led offense. If all fails this upcoming season, Robinson can be in the midst of a major turnaround for the team. Age is surely on their side but high hopes are running into due contracts.
