According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, Bears star wide receiver Allen Robinson is seeking up to $18 million per year in a new contract. Apparently the Bears are willing to give him $15-16 million per year.

Robinson has been WR1 for the third straight season with the Bears and has produced numbers to justify being a WR1. Currently, Robinson ranks as the 16th highest-paid receiver for the 2020 season. In 2019, the star receiver recorded 98 receptions for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns despite shaky quarterback play.

The Bears might have to cave into Robinson’s demands if they truly want to keep him in Chicago long-term. Robinson is 27 years old and looking to cash out with this potentially being the biggest contract of his career.

Perhaps that scenario could be in the works, as Bears chairman George McCaskey commented on the situation in a recent WGN Radio interview.

While McCaskey and Bears’ president Ted Phillips are optimistic about the situation, the fanbase is growing anxious. Time will tell if the two sides are able to reach an agreement, but the waiting game seems to be a stressful process all across the board.
