It seemed all off season that the Jaguars were content to let former star Allen Robinson test the free agent market and risk losing their former star receiver for nothing in return. And apparently that has happened, as Robinson will be gobbled up the Bears, when free agency begins.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had the report first in the middle of the night Tuesday:

We have written extensively recently that the Jaguars failure to put any kind of free agency “tag” on Robinson was the first indication that this was a real possibility. And as the last few days wore on and there was not a significant offer made, it was more apparent that VP of football Tom Coughlin and GM David Caldwell have other plans to bolster the receiving corp.

Details of Robinson’s potential deal with the Bears have not emerged, but you wonder how much money he got guaranteed.

That’s because Robinson played only the first half of game one last season, and then, he tore his ACL in Houston. That was obviously a concern for re-upping with the Jaguars and his free agent dollars. Jacksonville pressed on with receivers Keelan Cole, Marqise Lee and others and still ended up winning the division and making the AFC title game.

Robinson, a 1,400 yard 14 TD receiver for the Jags in 2016, maintains he will be fully healthy later this summer and in plenty of time for the 2018 season.
