The Chicago Bears should trade Allen Robinson at the deadline

By now, we know Allen Robinson is the biggest name to watch for when it comes to the Bears and this year’s trade deadline. It makes perfect sense. Robinson is on the franchise tag this year and will not be back after this season.

I repeat: there is absolutely no chance Robinson is back with the Bears after the 2021 season.

Robinson doesn’t want to be in Chicago. It’s obvious. He will find a new team once this year is up, and if the Bears were smart, they would find any taker via trade before the deadline passes.

There are a few teams that make sense for Robinson. But, the question will be, just how do some of them take on his salary? This will be the tricky part of any deal.

One team that makes particular sense is The Baltimore Ravens. Adding Robinson to a core of Rashod Bateman and Marquise Brown would give Lamar Jackson the playmakers he needs to make a Super Bowl run this season.

If the Bears could get a third-round pick in exchange for Robinson, at this point, that would be more than acceptable.
