The next option for the Chicago Bears could be Cam Robinson | Offensive Tackle

This free agency period doesn’t see many star left tackles, so it is hard to gauge the contract most will get. Most teams will be vying to get Taylor Moton, Trent Williams, or Alejandro Villanueva, and that could allow Robinson to be somewhat forgotten about.

Robinson has been the starting left tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars basically since he was drafted in 2017. The former second-round pick has struggled with injuries throughout the season, but he has been an average starter for the Jaguars who played in all 16 games this past season.

Robinson may just be an average starter, but he is only 25. He still has room to grow to be a solid left tackle in the NFL for years to come. He needs to have his technique cleaned up before he becomes good, but he has the physical traits to be good. He allowed five sacks on 973 snaps at left tackle in 2020.

The 25-year-old left tackle could be a cheap replacement for Bobby Massie or even Charles Leno if both become cap casualties. Regardless, if the Bears release both, they should address offensive tackle via the draft as well.
