The Chicago Bears offense has established a clear identity over the past couple of weeks. Since offensive coordinator Bill Lazor took over play-calling, it has been all about the run game.

Even without David Montgomery last week, Lazor’s stance never wavered. The Bears still ran for over 140 yards and did not abandon the ground game.

The message from Lazor’s offense is clear: pound the rock and make it easier on rookie quarterback Justin Fields in the long run, while setting him up for success using his strengths on play-action moving out of the pocket.

The commitment to the run game has come at a cost, though, as the passing attack has taken a back seat. Allen Robinson, for one, has not seen nearly as much action as one would have thought this season.

Would it make sense for the Chicago Bears to trade Allen Robinson before the 2021 NFL trade deadline?

Trading Robinson might just be in the Bears’ best interest at this point. The veteran wideout is playing on the franchise tag in 2021 after he and the organization failed to come to an agreement on a long-term deal.

If we’re being honest, those talks had long fizzled out before the tag became official. Robinson’s relationship with the Bears has seen better days, and for that reason, he’s as good as gone next year in free agency.

If the Bears are bound to lose him regardless, then general manager Ryan Pace should cut his losses and begin shopping Robinson. There are many teams who would benefit from Robinson’s presence, and these five might just be their best trade partners.
