Allen Robinson Reveals He's Been Working Out With One of the Bears Quarterbacks This Offseason
One of the biggest storylines of the Chicago Bears' offseason has centered around the quarterback spot. Mitchell Trubisky's disappointing 2019 campaign led to the Bears trading for Nick Foles, leading to a legitimate quarterback competition.
Trubisky's existing chemistry with the Bears' playmakers seems like it could be giving him an inside track on the starting job at this point, though.
Allen Robinson and the Bears' other starting receivers have reportedly been working out with Trubisky four times a week. All of those reps could go a long way to having Trubisky much more comfortable with the starting unit than Foles will be come training camp.
Any way you look at it, Trubisky's production fell off in 2019. He saw decreases from 7.4 to 6.1 yards per attempt and from a 95.4 to an 83.0 passer rating. His touchdowns dropped from 24 to 17 and his yards from 3,223 to 3,138 even though he attempted 82 more passes.
Those strong numbers from 2018 leave some room for optimism that Trubisky can bounce back in 2020, though, and he is clearly ready to put in the hard work it will take to hold onto the starting job.
