Any hopes Chicago Bears fans had of Allen Robinson returning to the team were dashed when he signed with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night. The veteran wide receiver did take the time to pen an emotional goodbye message on Twitter to the city he repped on the field for four years.

Robinson's message was to the point in that he kept his thoughts simple. He praised the owners of the Bears organization as well as his coaches for always believing in him. The former Penn State standout also shouted out his teammates and noted the bond they built will live on forever.

The city of Chicago and the fan base that filled the stands each Sunday were highlighted in the final paragraph of Robinson's goodbye. He thanked them for embracing him and his family so easily.

"So many of my greatest football moments were on Soldier Field, surrounded by the passion radiating from you. Those memories will never be forgotten!"

Allen Robinson to Chicago fans

Robinson racked up 3,561 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns across 57 games played with the Bears franchise. He hauled in 293 of his 465 targets and got to experience what it is like to be a true No. 1 WR. The 28-year-old will now look to keep his success going in the warm weather of California.

Chicago fans will have to wait a while before seeing Robinson up close again as the Bears do not face the Rams during the 2022 regular season. Maybe a playoff matchup will be in the cards, though. For now, the Bears have odds set at +8000 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
