Allen Robinson: Heart, spirit never wavered on wanting to be here

Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson spoke to reporters Wednesday and the lead topic was Robinson’s feelings about the team.

Tuesday brought a report that Robinson wants a trade to another team, although his agent Brandon Parker said later in the day that request had not happened. Parker did acknowledge that his client is “unhappy that Chicago has been unwilling to pay him market value for wide receivers.”

On Wednesday, Robinson said, via Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times, that he’d met with head coach Matt Nagy and General Manager Ryan Pace and that they are “in the clear” in terms of Robinson finishing the season in Chicago. He added that “my heart and spirit has never wavered” about wanting to be in Chicago for the long haul.

During his own press conference, Nagy said, via Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times, that he still thinks that the two sides can work out a new deal and that “our players all realize the history we have here in regards to taking care of guys.”

Robinson might dispute that point, but it appears the Bears will have some time to put some action behind Nagy’s words.

  1. Nagy’s comments are laughable. George Halas stiffed Dick Butkus when he wanted a measly, but well-deserved, raise. Things have changed very little since then with this penny pinching organization. He must be talking about another team.

    I’d hardly call the Bears a penny pinching organization, if anything they’re reckless with their spending

  3. The Cowboys broke the league by paying Amari Cooper $20 Million/year.
    Now all the above average WRs want $20 million…

    Allen Robinson > Amari Cooper

  4. I don’t know how he arrived at the conclusion that he’s not adequately paid. The total value of his contract is 18th among receivers and 14th in average per year. Most of those above him signed deals after he did. That’s how it works. If you want to earn top dollar every year, sign one year contracts and surrender the stability.

  5. It will be hard with the large amount of cap that is being paid to Khalil Mack. At this current state Robinson in more valuable than Mack, especially with just 2 tackles on Sunday.

  6. Dude has been a BEAST while having Blake “Cant hit the broad side of a barn” Bortles as QB…THEN a torn ACL…then Mitch “terrible” Trubisky as his QB…

    Dude deserves some of that easy bigtime NFL $$ just based on that alone!

    Imagine What would he do with a Brees, AROD, Mahomes or any legit passing stud nfl qb?

  7. Babe Ruth once asked for $100,000. He was told the president (Hoover) doesn’t even make that much. Ruth replied but I had a better year.

  8. Granted he was good last year but he’s had 2 good seasons out of 6. Also he’s getting paid good money, he seems to be forgetting about all the money he received up front which is the reason he’s getting paid ~$10M this season. Claiming that he’s “only paid $10M” and therefore underpaid is a dishonest argument.
