The Chicago Bears are expected to sign Jaguars free-agent wide receiver Allen Robinson, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The contract will be for three years and $42 million with $25 million in guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

The deal can't be made official until Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Robinson missed all but three snaps of this past regular season. He tore his ACL on the third play from scrimmage during the season-opener against the Texans in Houston.

The injury occurred during the Jaguars' first offensive possession. Robinson caught a pass for 17 yards and planted awkwardly as he was pushed out of bounds.

Prior to the season-ending injury, Robinson had a strong training camp.

The fifth-year wide receiver has caught 202 passes for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns since being selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

During Robinson's absence from the lineup, the Jaguars saw the emergence of rookie wide receivers Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook. Both players are likely to step up again with Robinson leaving town.


Robinson's departure may impact the statuses of fellow wide receivers Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee.

Hurns is due to make $7 million this season. The Jaguars can save that entire annual salary by cutting Hurns this offseason.

With Robinson's out of the picture, the Jaguars may be inclined to hold onto Hurns at his current cost.

Lee is set to become a free agent on Wednesday. Despite leading the team in receptions, he finished second to Cole in yardage. The former second-round pick caught just seven passes for 69 receiving yards during the Jaguars' three-game postseason run.

Lee may be able to draw a bigger role and more money elsewhere.
