Robinson deletes Bears from social media, incites speculation

Wide receiver Allen Robinson caused a stir Tuesday after deleting Chicago Bears content from his social media accounts.

Robinson, in the final year of his contract, revamped his Twitter and Instagram accounts by removing pictures and videos of him with the Bears. He even removed Bears from his bio.

Prior to erasing all references to the Bears, he posted that trying to “keep it peaceful is a struggle for me.”

The not-so-subtle changes have led to speculation that Robinson is amping up his calls for a contract extension. He signed a three-year, $42 million deal in 2018. Robinson has a base salary of $10,900,000 for this season.

Robinson, 27, has totaled 153 catches for 1,901 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first two seasons for the Bears. He was the Bears’ offensive MVP last season, accounting for nearly one third of the team’s receiving yards.

He caught five passes for 74 yards in Sunday’s come-from-behind victory over the Detroit Lions.

General manager Ryan Pace said prior to Week 1 that the Bears didn’t feel pressure to meet any artificial deadlines, while hinting that the team wants to keep Robinson.

“I don’t see this week as a deadline. We know how important A-Rob is to us,” Pace said.
