(LAKE FOREST, IL) – Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson sounded resigned to possibly playing the 2021 NFL season on a one-year deal in advance of the July 15 deadline for franchise-tagged players to receive long-term contracts. The Bears placed the $17.98 million franchise tag tender on Robinson after the two sides were unable to agree to an extension last year. The veteran receiver led the team with 102 catches for 1,250 yards in 2020. Robinson, 27, skipped the Bears' voluntary offseason workout program but reported to this week's mandatory three-day minicamp. Robinson added on Tuesday that he will be on time to training camp when it opens next month. Since joining the Bears in 2018, Robinson has been far and away the team's top wide receiver. Despite playing on some of the league's lower-rated offenses, Robinson has caught 255 passes for 3,151 yards and 17 touchdowns over the past three seasons.
