Monday, the legal tampering period indeed opened up - meaning, teams can begin negotiating with players and agents but cannot make deals official until Wednesday afternoon.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news early Tuesday morning which was followed up by the network's Josina Anderson reporting the terms of the expected three-year deal worth $42million, an annual average that would tie for eighth-largest among current wideout contracts. To know that he did that without anything close to a top-tier wide receiver is impressive, though it's still a relatively small sample size. He promised to be aggressive. The Bears may not be done in free agency and/or the draft when it comes to solidifying the wide receiver position. General manager Ryan Pace said last month at the Scouting Combine that he believed the Bears could improve at wide receiver quickly and adding Robinson as the first - and biggest - piece of that equation takes care of a huge need.
"So it's just our communication with our scouts and our coaches, just keeping on the same page on what players fit our scheme".
Robinson missed virtually all of last season after he suffered a torn ACL in the very first game of the year.
Robinson's best season came in 2015 when he caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns - all career-highs.
Robinson has great size for the outside and go-up-and-get-it abilities, a skill set the Bears sorely lacked last season after Alshon Jeffery left in free agency.
A second-round pick of the Jaguars in 2014, Robinson was a candidate to be franchise tagged by Jacksonville for a one-year salary around $16 million, but the Jaguars chose not to do so, allowing him to hit free agency instead. The Packers were reportedly in the mix for Robinson. If you're a fan of any of the other teams who were pursuing Robinson, you should be upset, because he was affordable.
