Allen Robinson: Bears haven't given me viable contract offer

Allen Robinson's future with the Chicago Bears is very uncertain. While the team could franchise tag him for the 2021 campaign, the 27-year-old prefers to be locked up to a longer-term deal. 

However, it doesn't sound like there has been much progress toward Robinson striking a deal with the Bears. The Pro Bowl wide receiver said the franchise has not offered him a deal he believes he is worth, according to Go Long with Tyler Dunne.

"My personal opinion, if something could possibly work? Yes," Robinson said. "I'm not opposed to being back in Chicago by any means. I've even expressed that over the last couple of years — wanting to be the all-time leading receiver in Chicago which, I believe, I'm under 2,000 yards away from that. With all that being said, unfortunately we've come to what seems to be a fork in the road. But not even a fork. We haven't even been given a viable option to be able to do those things that we want to do without sacrificing a ridiculous amount pretty much for the rest of my career."

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Bears could franchise tag and then trade Robinson, which he is open to. It's unclear which teams might be interested in either trading for or signing him.

In three seasons with the Bears, the Penn State product has 255 catches for 3,151 yards and 17 touchdowns. He has two of his 1,000-plus yard seasons in Chicago.
