Allen Robinson might be the cure for two Philadelphia Eagles ailments.

By now, we should all agree. If the Philadelphia Eagles are going to be competitive in free agency, no less than three things are going to have to happen. One, big contracts will need to be shed. Second, a few of the remaining Eagles may need to restructure, and third, even if both of these things happen, the Birds are still going to half to fish in waters where talent and cost-effective talent coincide with one another.

Enter Allen Robinson who, at the time of this story being published, has yet to be given a deal with the Chicago Bears that guarantees that he’ll be in the Windy City past the 2020 regular season (or the following postseason, depending on how the Bears do). He may cost a little more than Philly wants to spend, but he may prove to be worth the investment.

He’s six-foot-two and 220 pounds. He’s also got a Pro Bowl on his resume. That isn’t representative of his talent though because frankly, you can argue that he was possibly screwed out of at least two more in seasons where he was completely deserving (see his 2016 and 2018 runs). Look at it this way. Try and name a receiver on Philly’s roster right now that you can say is definitively better. You can’t do it, can you?
