Allen Robinson indicated on Wednesday that he expects to finish the season with the Chicago Bears, but he declined to clarify whether he or his agent formally requested a trade.
“Yeah, I would say so,” Robinson said on Zoom call with Chicago media, when asked if he anticipates being with the Bears for the rest of 2020. “… I’ve talked to [general manager] Ryan [Pace], I’ve talked to Coach [Matt] Nagy. As far as everything else, we’re in the clear with that.”
Robinson continued: “I’m not going get into that [trade] detail, but like I said before, my heart and spirit has never wavered, as far as the city of Chicago and playing for this organization. Obviously, you dive into the business of the game, and there’s different variables that go into that. But how I feel about my teammates, how I feel about this team, how I feel about this city and everything like that has never wavered. When you’re in this business and in a situation like this, things come up.”
