The Bears' new-look wide receiving corps is beginning to take shape. It's only taken several months.
Free-agent acquisition Allen Robinson finally practiced with the Bears for the first time since he signed his contract with them three months ago in March. Robinson has been recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in the first game of last season when he was still with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) practiced today, the first time we’ve seen him do so since he signed in March. Hopefully the team makes him available to media this afternoom.— Rich Campbell (@Rich_Campbell) May 30, 2018
The Bears revamped their wide receiving corps this offseason beginning with the release of Cameron Meredith, who, ironically enough, also tore his ACL in the 2017 season. In addition to Robinson, the Bears picked up Taylor Gabriel after he spent two seasons catching passes from Matt Ryan in Atlanta. And though he's not technically new to the team, the Bears are counting on Kevin White to finally remain healthy and be the dynamic playmaker they thought they were getting when they drafted him.
Chicago is hoping Robinson can return to his 2015 form. With Blake Bortles throwing to him, Robinson had 1,400 receiving yards and caught 14 touchdown passes. The Bears need that kind of production to help out second year signal caller Mitchell Trubisky.
