Bears WR Allen Robinson

The Chicago Bears have done plenty of things right this offseason, including drafting Justin Fields and addressing their offensive line issues. The team has failed in a big way when it comes to its top wide receiver, however.

After contract talks with wideout Allen Robinson stalled last fall, they never really picked up again, and general manager Ryan Pace couldn’t manage to secure the services of the best offensive player his team has had over the last three seasons.

“Talks have been pretty slow,” NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said about the situation with A-Rob on a July 11 episode of SportsCenter, via Alex Seats of 247 Sports. “They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try

It appears as though Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is down to two options: Play the 2021 season under the $17.8 million franchise tag or hold out. 

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears and Robinson “are not expected to reach a long-term extension.”

On Sunday, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler predicted during an appearance on SportsCenter that Robinson would play out this season on the tag (h/t Alex Seats of 247Sports.com):

“Talks have been pretty slow. There’s a decent chance he plays this year out on the tag, They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try to put up big numbers this year and try to smash free agency in 2022. He’s

The Chicago Bears and wide receiver Allen Robinson reportedly aren’t close to reaching an agreement on a long-term contract prior to Thursday’s deadline for franchise-tagged players.

During an appearance on SportsCenter on Sunday, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said discussions between the Bears and Robinson have been “pretty slow” and there “has not been much momentum.”

Fowler noted there is a “decent chance” Robinson will play out the 2021 season on the franchise tag with the goal of putting up big numbers so he can “smash” free agency in 2022.

The 27-year-old Robinson is set to enter his fourth season with the Bears, and he is coming off back-to-back campaigns with over 1,100 yards.

After recording 98 catches for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns in 2019, he followed it up with 102 grabs for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns last season as the Bears’ unquestioned top wideout.

Jimmy Butler takes on Chris Paul after incident with Duncan Robinson

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler was called for a pretty blatant offensive foul after charging into Chris Paul during their 116-115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.

Turns out, he did that on purpose. 

He was defending Duncan Robinson.

Robinson and Paul were matched up late in the second quarter, and were fighting for a ball in the corner. 

Paul ended up ripping the ball away from Robinson but started losing his balance as he did so, and was going to fall out of bounds. Before he did, he threw the ball of of Robinson and out of bounds — a smart basketball play that gave his team the possession.

That, though, didn’t sit well with Butler. 

The next time down the court, Butler drove right at Paul and blatantly extended his arm to knock him down. 

Instantly, he was
