Mitch Trubisky Has Already Wowed Allen Robinson
When Ryan Pace set out to surround his young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with everything he needed to make a leap from year 1 to year 2, the first thing he did was hire head coach Matt Nagy. The second thing he did was bring him some weapons via free agency, including who many deemed the No. 1 free agent wide receiver on the market in Allen Robinson.
Robinson, who is coming off a torn ACL with the Jacksonsville Jaguars last season, looks to add a viable receiving threat for the Bears 23-year old quarterback. Even though the pair haven’t had a chance to build a rapport on the field, Robinson is seeing things through Trubisky’s eyes with film study. And what Robinson has seen has impressed him.
“Each and every day, he does something different to really make you say ‘Wow,'” Robinson told the McNeil & Parkins Show on The Score. “He has an incredible delivery as far as how the ball comes out. He has a tremendous arm, and that’s something I picked up early.
“He can make any throw on the field, and he’s an athletic dude. You don’t really get that combination at the quarterback that much. Sometimes it’s one or the other. For him to have both and being very knowledgeable under center, I think the sky’s the limit for him. And he’s a guy who comes in and puts the work in every day.”
Robinson, who is progressing well in an offseason that’s very cautious, has been working his way back from his knee injury. He’s running routes and being more active in hopes he’ll be ready to suit up with his teammates for the Bears’ first training camp practice at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais.
“I’m trusting our training staff as far as how they want me to take this process, but everything else is going as planned,” Robinson said. “I understand the patience from our staff as far as why they’re (being cautious). As far as me, it’s one of those things where I trust their process. Everything has worked throughout, so we may as well progress how we have been.”
