Bears expected to sign wide receiver Allen Robinson

Go deep? Bears in play for speedy wide receiver Sammy Watkins

The Bears benefit from landing a true No. 1 receiver they've been lacking since Alshon Jeffery went to Philadelphia on a one-year deal last spring.

The Bears finished the 2017 season with a 5-11 record and will have the eighth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

"I like what coach Nagy did from an offensive standpoint in Kansas City", Robinson said, per Anderson on Twitter.

The Bears were looking to upgrade their struggling receiving corps and give Trubisky more dependable targets.

It comes at a cost.

Bears signed WR Allen Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $42 million contract.

One of the biggest deals was announced by ESPN's Adam Schefter early on Tuesday morning.

The bet is that all three still have room to grow. He combined for an impressive 153 catches, good for 2,283 yards (14.9 average) and 20 touchdowns. While his 2016 season dipped just a tad, going for 883 yards and six touchdowns, his production is worlds ahead of the Bears current options. In his second year in Cleveland, Gabriel caught 28 passes for 241 yards and an 8.6-yard average with no touchdowns.

For the Bears, this is a relatively reasonable commitment for a player that has Pro Bowl potential.

That historically bad season at receiver put the franchise in position to aggressively find Trubisky a No. 1 wideout. "But from what I've heard about Chicago, it's an awesome city and football town". Prior to the news of his impending deal with the Bears, he was coming off the board as the No. 21 wide receiver, which is an ADP around the fourth-/fifth-round turn. Because neither was drafted, the Bears would not receive compensation if they decline to match an offer sheet.
