The Bengals and Chicago Bears make great trade partners for Allen Robinson

The Bengals are in a great spot right now. They’re going to have a decent amount of money to spend in free agency while having their franchise quarterback locked down and on a rookie deal.

Not only that, but they have a budding wide receiver in Tee Higgins who looks every bit of a pro. However, the team could finally look to move on from longtime fan favorite A.J. Green, which means they would either be looking at Tyler Boyd as a concrete No. 2 replacement or find one elsewhere.

A receiving core of Robinson, Higgins and Boyd would be pretty close to perfect for a second-year, Heisman-winning quarterback like Joe Burrow. He couldn’t ask for much more than that, especially if Joe Mixon can give them a full, healthy season at his best.

Cincinnati then still has the fifth overall pick in this year’s draft to use however they’d like, and the options are endless. The Bengals would be a fantastic candidate to land Robinson, and their offense could go from one of the league’s worst to a top-10 unit in a hurry.

Bears should trade for this QB. dark. Next

For the Bears, they could ask for something along the lines of the Bengals’ second-round pick in this year’s draft — which would be pick No. 37 overall. If that’s too high an asking price for a player who wants out of Chicago, the Bears could end up settling for something along the lines of a deal featuring a pair of third-rounders.
