Allen Robinson: Big difference being healthy this offseason

Wide receiver Allen Robinson had one of his biggest games of the year in the Bears’ playoff loss to the Eagles in January.

Robinson caught 10 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown in the kind of performance that Chicago was hoping to get when they signed him to a three-year, $42 million deal as a free agent. The Bears signed Robinson to that contract after he tore his ACL during the 2017 season and that injury limited the work he could do with the team last offseason.

That limited offseason was joined by the typical issues that come with integrating into a new offensive scheme and the combination make it little surprise that Robinson’s production spiked late in the season. Neither should be an issue this year as Robinson is in the same offense without any health issues holding him back at practice.

“For me a big difference is not being injured,” Robinson said, via the Chicago Tribune. “Being able to come in and work on stuff that I want to work on.”

Robinson wasn’t the only one new to the offense last season. Everyone on the team was getting used to working in head coach Matt Nagy’s scheme for the first time and anything short of marked improvement on offense this year will likely be seen as a disappointment in Chicago.

  1. At least he showed up in the playoff’s unlike Mack who was paid a lot more

  2. Players always make that 2nd yr jump after their ACL injuries the prior year. I look for allen to have around 80 catches for 1100-1200 yds and 8-10 tds this year and be that true #1 WR. Gonna be fun to watch this offense this year. BearDown

    I’m pretty sure Mack’s presence and overall performance for the Bears has made their fans happy. He changed their entire already very good defense and team as a whole. Maybe if you could get past getting fleeced by the Bears and get over it already you could stop embarrassing yourself on here making comments about one of the top three defenders in the entire league that you inept team let walk away to the Bears. Good luck with all those unknown draft picks you got, I bet all of them combined won’t add up to Mack’s superior skill level and talent.

  4. A WR can only be as good as his QB. Trubisky is erratic. If you look at Robinson’s target to catch ratio you would think he might have a lot of drops. Nope. It’s just that Trubisky’s throws are often not catchable.
