In what is becoming a surefire imprint of a player’s discontent, Allen Robinson II removed references to the Chicago Bears from his social media accounts Tuesday.

In accordance with NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Robinson did so to imprint his level of frustration over the crew failing to meet his demands on a long-time period extension:

#Bears WR Allen Robinson has removed references to the crew from his social media — a reflection of his frustration over the bid of talks on a recent contract, sources convey. No alternate inquire of as of now, and Chicago has a history of getting extensions performed. End tuned. @nflnetwork https://t.co/JKbhKEqYoX

While Pelissero reported Robinson had no longer requested a alternate, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported the wideout has requested a pair of alternate.

Robinson is incomes a $10.9 million nasty wage in 2020 earlier than he turns into a free agent this offseason.

The 27-year-former is coming off a solid 2019 season wherein he caught 98 passes for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns. His numbers doubtless would’ve been even better if no longer for Mitchell Trubisky’s erratic performances.

Since signing his three-year deal with the Bears in March 2018, Robinson has watched a necessity of his peers income with recent contracts.

DeAndre Hopkins accurate got a two-year, $54.5 million extension from the Arizona Cardinals, whereas Keenan Allen attach apart pen to paper on a four-year extension price $80.1 million. Adam Thielen (four years, $64.2 million) and Amari Cooper (five years, $100 million) are among the many others to stable a healthy expand.

Few would classify Robinson as being among the many league’s most arresting wideouts, but he would possibly possibly well possibly even plausibly argue his circumstances hang performed him no favors. He must wonder what he did to infuriate the football gods by going from Blake Bortles with the Jacksonville Jaguars to Trubisky.

Since coming into the league, most arresting 62.0% of Allen Robinson’s targets hang been deemed “catchable.”

That ranks 95th out of 100 qualifiers. https://t.co/im2UpvMLfT

Robinson is clearly the Bears’ most arresting receiver, so that you simply’d inquire them to attain every effort to support him.

The true fact he’s adopting a passive-aggressive technique to bring his exasperation would apparently dispute a well-known stalemate between the two facets.
