Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson has "come to a fork in the road" amidst contract negotiations with the front office, as the talented receiver appears to be heading towards a franchise tag if he opts to stay in Chicago for the 2021 season. (NFL.com)
Robinson caught 102 of 151 targets for Chicago in 2020, racking up 1,250 yards and six touchdowns to be the clear-cut option in the Bears' receiving corps. Despite these numbers, Robinson is reportedly having a difficult time arriving at a long-term contract extension, telling Around the NFL's Nick Shook, "With all that being said, unfortunately we've come to what seems to be a fork in the road. But not even a fork. We haven't even been given a viable option to be able to do those things that we want to do without sacrificing a ridiculous amount pretty much for the rest of my career." Robinson will field plenty of suitors on the open market should he decide to force a trade out of Chicago, as his elite receiving abilities can revamp an offense missing a clear-cut WR1. Fantasy managers and fans alike should continue to closely monitor this situation in Chicago.
