Wide receiver Allen Robinson is nearing the end of his second season with the Bears and he has his heart set on sticking around Chicago for a while longer.

Robinson said he “would love to be the Bears’ all-time leading receiver” by the time his career is over and that would mean signing a new contract with the team as his current one runs out after the 2020 season. If the Bears are inclined to discuss a new deal this offseason, Robinson would be happy to have that conversation.

“Yeah, definitely,” Robinson said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “There’s a lot that goes into it . . . but as far as how comfortable I am here and how much I like it here, I definitely would foresee spending many more years here.”

Robinson has a cap number of $15 million for next season and an extension would likely bring that number down so the team could address other needs while holding onto their top receiver for years to come.
