An easy way to get a player to show his true feelings is to suffer a bad loss, as Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson demonstrated on Sunday night after the Bears fell 41-25 to their rivals, the Green Bay Packers. Robinson can be a free agent at the end of the season.
So the fact Robinson liked several tweets from fans telling him it may be time to move on … well, that’s news.
The Bears are 5-6. They’re not entirely out of playoff contention, but another loss or two should just about seal the deal.
Robinson will undoubtedly be one of the top wide receivers available during the offseason. He signed a three-year contract worth $42 million in 2018.
His agent once went on social media and demanded that the Bears “Throw 12 the Damn Ball in the Redzone! JUST ONCE! My goodness.”
That tweet happened during a Bears loss to the Minnesota Vikings. It has since been deleted.
Robinson’s time with the Bears may soon be, too.
And whoever gets him next will be happy to know that wherever he is, he’ll probably wish he were someplace else. At least he’s consistent.
