Wide receiver Allen Robinson will sign a three-year, $42 million deal with the Bears barring any last-minute issues before National Football League free agency opens Wednesday afternoon, he told ESPN late Monday night.

The Bears are expected to sign WR Allen Robinson. The highest RFA tender this year is $4.149 million and comes with a first-round pick as compensation. To know that he did that without anything close to a top-tier wide receiver is impressive, though it's still a relatively small sample size.

That includes Bears fans, who are craving a new cast of talented receivers, and Robinson addressed Chicago as a potential destination Monday when he was a guest on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio with host Adam Schein.

Robinson missed nearly all of the 2017 season and he had a down year in 2016 but he's proven to be a star in the right situation, evidenced by the 80-catch, 1,400 receiving yard, 14 touchdown campaign in 2015.

How do you feel about the current state of the Bears? Meredith is a restricted free agent. By comparison, Trubisky hit that number in just 7-of-12 games. Only the Buffalo Bills got less receiving yardage out of their wide receivers and tight ends, so Robinson would quickly become the top option alongside a returning Cam Meredith and Kevin White. If Robinson is healthy for all 16 games, you can lock him in for 120-plus targets. Now we wait to see if Robinson can play like it. If Trubisky is going to take a step forward in his career in 2018, Robinson is going to be a massive part of it.
