Bears Reportedly Pushing to Extend Tarik Cohen
Why would the Bears be willing to let Allen Robinson’s contract linger over the season but feel the need to lock up Tarik Cohen right now?
According to Ian Rapoport, the Chicago Bears are currently working on an extension for Tarik Cohen.
This news comes as a shock to Bears’ fans, as people are immediately wondering why Allen Robinson’s extension isn’t the only one the Bears are focusing on. Even though Tarik Cohen’s contract number won’t scratch the surface of Allen Robinson’s, it still seems odd that the front office threw this into the mix. Why would they be willing to let Allen Robinson’s contract linger over the season but feel the need to lock up Tarik Cohen right now?
Even though Tarik Cohen can be a very effective player in Matt Nagy’s offense, it still runs through Allen Robinson. It’s possible they lock up both players sometime today, but it’s just another wrench in the system that will cause more drama until the Allen Robinson contract is finished.
