Celebrating Chicago’s 3/4, Respect on A-Rob’s Name, Potential TE Interests, and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

The wonderful city of Chicago turns 184 today. Maybe I’ll make a treat to celebrate.

•   In the meantime, it feels right to celebrate 3/4 with some of No. 34’s greatest highlights:

•   As far as I’m concerned, it’s always a good time to watch Walter Payton highlights!

•   It’s time to put some respect on Allen Robinson’s name:

•   For what it’s worth, Stacey Dales seems to think the two sides will ultimately come to a deal. And maybe they will. Robinson has long held an interest in returning, while Head Coach Matt Nagy discussed how much love he had for the Bears’ top receiver during his recent press availability. At some point, GM Ryan Pace needs to put a dollar amount on that love and get him in the fold.

•   Show him the money:


•   The only thing more important than re-signing Robinson is finding him a QB who can get him the ball. In my gut, I feel as if resolving the quarterback situation with the right player would make it easier to re-sign Robinson. Bring in a proven stud, and I think it would be an easier sell. Let’s face it: Robinson deserves better than what he’s had at quarterback. We could go back to his college days when he was catching balls from Christian Hackenberg to note the hardships he has dealt with at that position. And he still gets work done. Seriously … it’s time to make something happen.

•   For your listening pleasure:


•   This news had me feeling some type of way:


•   The Saints continue to slash payroll in an attempt to get out from the depths of salary cap hell. ESPN’s Field Yates tweets the team released tight ends Jared Cook and Josh Hill. And because the Bears have had interest in both tight ends during previous free agency periods, I wonder if they’d kick the tires again. Chicago reportedly had its eyes on Cook in 2017. A year earlier, the team signed Hill to an offer sheet as a restricted free agent. Sure, a considerable amount of time has passed since the Bears showed interest in either player. But there are questions beyond Cole Kmet in the tight ends department, so I can’t rule out a depth-building move on that front.

•   As of now, the Bears still have a first-round pick. One player who has been sent to Chicago often via mock drafts is Oklahoma State tackle Teven Jenkins. If you’re unfamiliar, change that by watching this:
