Allen Robinson is getting paid for next season, but he isn’t exactly happy about it.
After the Chicago Bears decided to use the one-year tender to retain the Pro Bowl wide receiver, social media users noticed he liked a tweet from former NFL player Torrey Smith saying the franchise tag “sucks.”
Robinson will earn $18 million in 2021 if he plays on the franchise tag.
The move gives the Bears more time to negotiate a long-term extension with the 27-year-old rather than risk losing him when free agency begins next week.
Even with the QB carousel in Chicago — Robinson has racked up 2,397 yards and 13 touchdowns on 200 receptions over the past two seasons combined.
