The Chicago Bears should consider trading wide receiver Allen Robinson

Although he has made a couple of nice grabs this season, Allen Robinson seems to have taken a seat in favor of Darnell Mooney thus far in the offense. Mooney leads the team in targets (26), receptions (17) and receiving yards (226) through four games.

Robinson has also looked a bit uninterested at times, which is not hard to believe considering the relationship strain between he and the organization at this point.

Robinson is still an incredibly talented wide receiver, and in the right situation, could put another team over the top in their quest for a Super Bowl. It’s easy to see that he will be as good as gone next year via free agency, and right now would be a great time to try and get whatever the Bears could get for him.

Instead of losing him for nothing in the spring, dealing him makes sense. The Bears likely aren’t going to be a playoff team this year, therefore making up some ground in draft capital next year would be a huge victory.

If the Bears could deal Robinson for a second-round pick, or even a second and a fourth — something along those lines — they shouldn’t bat an eye. They’ll already be in line to find his replacement next year, and extra draft capital would help do so.
