The Chicago Bears should target Orlando Brown in an Allen Robinson trade

It is painful to even begin writing scenarios like this, but this is the reality Bears fans are experiencing. Now, if Chicago wants to go out and get one of the best possible returns for Robinson, Pace will turn his attention to the Baltimore Ravens.

The clear-cut need for Baltimore right now is at wide receiver. They need a tried and true threat at the position, and most experts believe they will add one. The Ravens could add a name like Kenny Golladay or JuJu Smith-Schuster, or they could go for an even better option in Robinson. Fortunately for the Bears, Baltimore has a player that’s on his way out as well.

After Ronnie Stanley went down to injury last season, Orlando Brown slid over to that left tackle spot — and Brown played well. He played so well, in fact, that it led him to a Pro Bowl nod. Now, there’s been a bit of a power struggle between Brown and the Ravens.

Brown has always seen himself as a left tackle, but the Ravens have already paid Stanley to be their left tackle for years to come. Now, he wants out. If Chicago wanted to address one of their major needs this offseason, a Robinson-for-Brown swap makes a ton of sense.

The Bears could then decide whether they would part with Charles Leno or Bobby Massie, but Brown would immediately slot in as the starting left tackle. From there, the Bears and Brown would need to come to an agreement on an extension, as he’s in the last year of his rookie deal.
