Chicago Bears: Realistic sign-and-trade destinations for Allen Robinson
By Ryan Heckman
Washington could have a lethal duo if they take Robinson from the Chicago Bears
The Washington Football Team is undoubtedly looking for a quarterback this offseason, but with the 17th pick in the draft, it’s unknown whether they will attempt to get one in the first round — or in the draft at all. Maybe, they decide to try and lure Dak Prescott from their division rival, or they could opt to trade for a quarterback. Regardless, they need someone to throw the ball to Robinson if they acquired him.
When Washington traded Trent Williams to the San Francisco 49ers, they netted a third-round pick in that deal. That, coupled with their own third-rounder, could be enough to get Robinson to Washington.
Washington will have more than enough cap space to sign Robinson and still have money left over. Plus, adding him to this wide receiver core featuring Terry McLaurin would give Washington one of the more frightening duos in all of football. They don’t call him “Scary Terry” for nothing — now try pairing him with Robinson.
That’s quite the tandem.
For the Bears, this is a great value. Getting two picks in the third round, paired with their own third-rounder, would allow them more ammunition to move up if they chose to do so.
