Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles could pursue wide receiver Demarcus Robinson in free agency

Another area of concern for the Bears this offseason is at the wide receiver position. Darnell Mooney took some great strides in his second season, but there is doubt about him becoming the true number one guy in Chicago.

Mooney is an excellent second option, though. Beyond Mooney, the Bears don’t have much. Allen Robinson will be in a different uniform, and the team must make decisions on Marquise Goodwin, Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant.

Finding a third and fourth receiver will also be on the docket, and veteran Demarcus Robinson could be one of those guys for the Bears. Robinson has spent his entire 6-year career with the Chiefs after being a fourth-round pick back in 2016.

Robinson has done a nice job being that third or fourth option and consistently making plays when called upon. He’s been good for 25-50 receptions, typically, and a handful of touchdowns.

The Chiefs, though, might have to choose between he and Byron Pringle. With Pringle being the guy who has taken up more playing time, they could choose him, leaving Robinson as a free agent.

Robinson would be a solid addition to this receiving core. His experience with a high profile quarterback like Patrick Mahomes and ability to improvise at times would be great for Justin Fields.
