We began discussing an Allen Robinson II getting a big-money extension from the Bears back during the winter of 2019. But despite Robinson’s public insistence that he was hoping to stick around in Chicago, things never actually materialized. And after Robinson played the 2021 season on the Franchise Tag with unsavory results, it was obvious return to Chicago wasn’t in the cards.
And yet, Robinson will ultimately get what he has long been desiring — a multi-year contract and an established quarterback. But who would’ve guessed it was coming from the Rams?

An already loaded receivers room gets another Pro Bowl caliber talent. Robinson joins Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods in angling to catch passes from Super Bowl winning quarterback Matthew Stafford. Yeah, that sentence was as weird to type out as it was to read.
Robinson was productive in Chicago during his first three years. Two of which were 1,000-yard receiving seasons. And one of those was a 100-catch campaign. But it was a woeful 2021 for Robinson, who caught just 38 passes for 410 yards, and one touchdown. However, that is water under the bridge now. Robinson is going from the quarterback carousel in Chicago to a stable home with a play-caller in Sean McVay who lives up to the lofty bouquets thrown in his direction. Unlike Robinson’s previous play-caller, whom he believes froze him out of the playbook. Robinson might be heading to Hollywood, but he is leaving the drama behind.
