Bears expected to sign wide receiver Allen Robinson


That means the Bears can match any offer from other teams, but won't receive compensation if they choose to not sign either player.

Robinson gives the Bears a bona fide playmaking target for quarterback Mitch Trubisky and the team's goal this offseason has been to upgrade the skill position players around last year's No. 2 overall pick. The Bears' use of an original-round tender suggests they may not share Meredith's confidence, or else they view his impressive 2016 campaign as somewhat of a fluke. Injuries have dogged the Bears at the position with Kevin White going out for the season previous year in Week 1 and Cameron Meredith missing the entire season with a torn ACL. He had a breakout year in 2015 as he grabbed 80 balls for 1,400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

Robinson will walk into an immediate No. 1 role with the Bears, who are now project to start Robinson and Kevin White on the perimeter, with Cameron Meredith in the slot. He could be back with the team since they have no long snapper on the roster. Meredith is a restricted free agent. That injury was a significant factor in the Jaguars opting not to hand him the franchise tag and allowing him to hit free agency.

Meredith and White suffered season-ending injuries. He started six games in the slot previous year when the Bears opened in nickel defense. Enough so, that the team announced that the 28-year-old has been re-signed for two more years. Sowell has 23 starts to his name in six National Football League seasons.

Through his first three offseasons Pace's free-agent track record isn't good.

The Bears won't tender long snapper Patrick Scales, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. He was the team's snapper for all of 2016 and five games the season prior. The Bears have zero specialists under contract with no kicker or punter as well.

Knowing their current state, Robinson likely landed in the optimal offense to succeed from a production standpoint.
