Could an Allen Robinson and Cam Newton connection take place in 2020?
Could you imagine the uproar that would take place among Chicago Bears fans if the New England Patriots not only signed Cam Newton off the street for pocket change but they also traded for Allen Robinson? Chicago Bears social media would go insane as many thought the Bears should have signed Newton instead of trading away for Nick Foles.
Now, Bears fans would have to suffer watching not only Cam Newton win games in Carolina for fraction of the cost of Nick Foles, but they would see just how good the Newton to Allen Robinson connection could have been.
Although I am not a big Newton fan and did not care to see him here in Chicago (at least was not one of my top choices), even I would be intrigued to see how that connection would work. Robinson would arguably be the best wide receiver target Newton had since Steve Smith.
In this trade, the Chicago Bears would receive a second-rounder from the New England Patriots, but that pick could potentially become a first-rounder depending on some undisclosed factors. Those factors for me would be based on where the Patriots finish. If they are in the bottom 25 picks and Allen Robinson performs at a certain level statistics wise, the pick becomes a first. The Patriots sent a second-rounder for Mohamed Sanu last year and Robinson is exceptionally better.
Adding a talent like Robinson would be great for the Patriots offense that continues to rely heavily on Julian Edelman. Second-year wide receiver N’Keal Harry has not stepped up enough and Robinson would be an immediate upgrade.
