After agreeing to terms with wide receiver Allen Robinson late Monday night, the Chicago Bears general manager got right back to it Tuesday morning.
The Florida alum had 37 catches for 327 yards in 2016; before that, he'd totaled only four targets in his first two years with the Eagles after being signed as an undrafted free agent.
At just 24, Robinson still has a ton of upside and should be incentivized to have a great few years in Chicago as he'll hit free agency again in the prime of his career if he does.
Over the years, it's been hard for Burton to be consistent with production since he was always playing behind Brent Celek and Zach Ertz for the most part, but when seeing how effective whenever called upon, the Bears have plenty of reasons to be excited about their new tight end.
Fans around the National Football League best know him for his role in the "Philly Special" play in Super Bowl LII, where he threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles before the end of the first half.
On the eve of the official opening of free agency, the Bears reportedly reached an agreement on a four-year, $32 million deal with former Eagles tight end Trey Burton.
That's a lot of cheese for an unproven player, but Burton has had some nice production the last two years in Ertz's shadow.
Bears fans are through the roof with the way the depth chart looks. This move nearly certainly means the Bears plan to cut Dion Sims, who they just signed to a "three-year, 18 million" contract last offseason. The Bears also spent a second-round draft choice on tight end Adam Shaheen.
