However, if the Bears choose not to match an offer sheet for Meredith, Bellamy or Callahan, they would receive no compensation. Terms of Robinson's deal are unknown as of this posting.

Mitch Trubisky has a brand-new weapon.

The Bears may not be done in free agency and/or the draft when it comes to solidifying the wide receiver position. This likely wasn't a "bid against themselves" situation like the Bears found themselves in with Mike Glennon last season.

If the numbers are accurate, it's contract that reflects Robinson's potential as well as his question marks. The veteran wide receiver is expected to get a lot of attention on the market, and Blanton said that Chicago should do a "full court press" to land Robinson this offseason. The benefit to him is he'll be 27 when it expires and set up for a big deal if his play merits it. Robinson's signing won't be official until Wednesday, but if he ends with the Bears he would immediately become the top receiver for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

With Robinson coming off of an ACL tear, a three-year deal makes a ton of sense and the good thing is he'll only be 27-years-old when the deal is up. He posted 73 catches for 883 yards with six touchdowns in the following season.

A second-round pick of the Jaguars in 2014, Robinson was a candidate to be franchise tagged by Jacksonville for a one-year salary around $16 million, but the Jaguars chose not to do so, allowing him to hit free agency instead.

Restricted free agents are players with three accrued seasons.

Kendall Wright led the team's receiving game last season, with just 614 yards on 59 catches, and no other player could beat Tarik Cohen's 353 receiving yards. The Bears also are interested in receiver Albert Wilson.

Robinson will walk into an immediate No. 1 role with the Bears, who are now project to start Robinson and Kevin White on the perimeter, with Cameron Meredith in the slot.
