Chicago Bears should trade Allen Robinson, WR

Say what you want, Allen Robinson has been the biggest disappointment of the entire Bears’ offense this season. He not only took a step back, but he looked to even become irrelevant. Already seven games into the season, he only has 23 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown. He is on pace for 56 receptions for 607 yards and 2 touchdowns.

There is no excuse for that. Elite wide receivers produce with anybody at quarterback. Heck, Robinson had his career-best season with Blake Bortles and multiple elite seasons with Mitch Trubisky. Absolutely zero excuses for his drops, inability to get open, and lack of effort on plays. He is not living up to the billing.

On top of that, he doesn’t block on the perimeter either. Elite wide receivers like Julio Jones take pride in their ability to do everything. Robinson never blocks or even wants to. It’s time to move on from him and maybe a change of scenery will pique his interest in caring about playing football again.

Now, since Robinson is on a franchise tag and in a contract year, his value may be down a little. At this point, we would be lucky to get a first-round pick for him. My guess is the Bears would receive a third-round pick and may be able to sway a team to give up a second. You never know as Mohamed Sanu garnered a second-round pick.

Teams like the Las Vegas Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts, or New Orleans Saints could be looking for a wide receiver to help their playoff push.
