Bears’ Allen Robinson has a bold goal for the rest of his time in Chicago
The Chicago Bears, in recent years, haven’t been known for great wide receivers. However, despite the team’s offensive struggles this year, the best guy they have, Allen Robinson, has a big goal for the future.
Allen Robinson is having a really solid year for the Bears in his second season with the team catching 76 balls for 898 yards and seven touchdowns through 13 games. 2019 has been Robinson’s best year since his Pro-Bowl, 1,400-yard 2015 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In terms of his future, the 6-foot-2 wideout wants to become the Bears all-time leading receiver.
Robinson currently has one year left after this season in his three-year $42 million contract but if Robinson continues to have the type of impact for the Bears he’s having this season, resigning the former Penn State product should be a no-brainer.
As for his goal, Robinson has a long way to go if he wants to catch Johnny Morris atop the Bears all-time receiving yards list. Morris played for Chicago between 1958 and 1967 where he accrued 5059 receiving yards, behind him is Harlon Hill with 4616 yards and Alshon Jeffery 4549 yards.
In his nearly two seasons with Chicago, Robinson 1652 yards which currently puts him at No. 42 on the all-time list for the franchise.
Robinson is still relatively young at 26 years old and the receiver reportedly wants to play the rest of his career in Chicago but nonetheless, Robinson’s goal will be tough. If he has a few more seasons like the one he’s having this year, Robinson should be able to climb up last list fast.
