Chicago Bears free agent replacements for Allen Robinson: Kenny Golladay
The Lions also have to try and re-sign Kenny Golladay, who is familiar with Chicago as a Northern Illinois product. Golladay is the younger, more athletic receiver in Detroit and overtook Jones as the number one guy before he was hurt in 2020.

Golladay is one of those star receivers in the league who can make the spectacular catches on a regular basis, but can he stay healthy? That’s something the Bears will want to make sure of this offseason — that he’s healthy and ready to roll for 2021.
In 2019, Golladay enjoyed a breakout year for Detroit as he caught 65 passes for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns — averaging a whopping 18.3 yards per catch.
Still just 27 years old, Golladay is probably the top free-agent receiver on the market this offseason. He’s one who offers teams the opportunity to grab a true number one, featured receiver.
Paired up with Mooney in Chicago, the Bears would then have two guys who could take opposing defenses deep on any given play — something pretty scary and not seen in Chicago for a while.
In order to get Golladay, though, the Bears would likely have to sacrifice financially elsewhere. He’s going to command top-10 money, and right now, the Bears just don’t have that in the cards, knowing their other needs.
