Robinson is signing a three-year contract with the Rams, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Pelissero's initial report puts the deal at $46.5 million -- a $15.5 average annual value -- with nearly two-thirds of the money guaranteed at signing ($30.7 million). Robinson may have had offers with larger AAVs from other teams, but the reigning champs enticed him with the chance to play for a ring as well as the strong contract guarantees. Plus, he'll work with an above-average starting QB for the first time in his career, though this does mean Robinson will be the second or third receiving option, behind Cooper Kupp and possibly Robert Woods (knee). Of course, Woods is no lock to be ready for Week 1, and this deal might also shut the door on Odell Beckham (knee) returning to Los Angeles. Robinson turns 29 in August, and he had back-to-back seasons with over 1,100 yards before crashing in 2021 with 410 yards in 12 games.

The Bears are expected to let Robinson hit free agency, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Chicago reportedly won't opt to use the franchise tag on Robinson, who logged the worst statistical season of his career in 2021, excluding the 2017 campaign that saw him suffer a torn ACL in Week 1. After having secured just 38 of 66 targets for 410 yards and one score in 12 appearances, a fresh start could be the best result for both Robinson's career and his fantasy prospects. The 28-year-old posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons from 2019-20, and if teams around the league are confident he can regain that sort of form, Robinson could find a number of interested suitors.

Robinson caught two passes for 22 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 40 receptions for 432 yards and one touchdown in 13 games.
Analysis: Despite playing in bad situations that often included poor quarterback play throughout his career, Robinson had, by far, the worst season of his career. On just one occasion did he post more than four receptions in a game, and he failed to reach 70 yards in any contest. It's impossible to know if his play simply dropped off, or if his situation on the Bears was too much to overcome. Look for him to be a polarizing player in 2022 fantasy drafts. After playing the year on the franchise tag, he'll enter his age-29 season as an unrestricted free agent.

Robinson caught four passes for 35 yards in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.
Analysis: Although Robinson was second on the team in targets and receiving yardage, this was the seventh time in 10 games that he's been held to 35 yards or fewer. With just a single touchdown on the season and no games with 70 yards, he'll be a risky fantasy option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

Robinson said Tuesday that he lost 10 pounds during his recent bout with COVID-19, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Robinson was away from the Bears starting Dec. 16 through Monday, when they activated him from the reserve/COVID-19 list. He specifically noted Tuesday that his conditioning may not be up to par, a reality that may lead to some practice limitations Wednesday through Friday. It's unclear if Robinson is in danger of missing a sixth game of the season Sunday against the Giants, but the coming days should provide some insight into his Week 17 availability.
Dec 28, 2021 11:09 AM EST
Chicago reinstated Robinson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Larry Meyer of the Bears' official site reports.
Analysis: After testing positive for the virus Dec. 16, Robinson missed two consecutive games before he was cleared to rejoin the facility Monday following an 11-day quarantine. Since Robinson will be on track for a full slate of practices this week, he should be able to handle a normal snap count Sunday against the Giants, assuming he feels fine from a conditioning standpoint. A hamstring injury and the stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list has resulted in Robinson making just one appearance since the Bears' Week 10 bye.
Dec 27, 2021 2:00 PM EST
Robinson (illness) is set to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The move has not been made official just yet, but Robinson is on the verge of returning after missing two games due to the COVID-19 virus. Assuming Robinson comes off the list in the coming days, he should be ready to return for the Bears' Week 17 matchup with the Giants.
Dec 27, 2021 10:36 AM EST
Robinson remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks, per Alyssa Barbieri of usatoday.com and Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic.
Analysis: Until Robinson clears the NFL's COVID protocols, Darnell Mooney, Marquise Goodwin (foot, questionable) and Damiere Byrd should lead the Bears' wideout corps. To add depth at the position in advance of Week 16 action, Chicago elevated WRs ﻿Nsimba Webster﻿ and ﻿Dazz Newsome﻿ from the practice squad Saturday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.
Dec 26, 2021 5:40 AM EST
Robinson will remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't be available for Monday's game against the Vikings, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.
Analysis: One of 14 Bears players who wasn't restored from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the Week 15 contest, Robinson will miss his fourth game of the season after previously missing three contests due to a hamstring injury. With Robinson out of the mix and Marquise Goodwin (foot) listed as doubtful for Monday's contest, both Jakeem Grant and Damiere Byrd should be in store for heavy snap shares alongside No. 1 wideout Darnell Mooney.
Dec 20, 2021 1:59 PM EST
The Bears placed Robinson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
Analysis: He was one of six Chicago players to land on the list Thursday. If vaccinated, Robinson would have an outside shot at being available for Monday's game against the Vikings if he's asymptomatic for 48 hours and tests negative for the virus on two occasions at least 24 hours apart. At this point in the week, however, Robinson seems more likely than not to sit out Monday, potentially leaving Chicago shorthanded at receiver with Marquise Goodwin (foot) also looking uncertain to play against Minnesota.
Dec 16, 2021 1:26 PM EST
Robinson caught two passes for 14 yards in the Bears' 45-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Analysis: Although he was second on the team with six targets, Robinson recorded fewer than 36 yards for the seventh time in the 10 games he's played in 2021. With just one touchdown on the year along with an average of 35 yards per game, he'll be difficult to trust in lineups during the fantasy playoffs.
Dec 13, 2021 3:37 AM EST
Robinson (hamstring) has been removed from the injury report and will play in Sunday's game against the Packers.
Analysis: He hasn't had much luck working with rookie QB Justin Fields, who is back under center this week while Andy Dalton (wrist) is listed as doubtful. Robinson last played Week 9, when he caught four passes for a season-high 68 yards in a 29-27 loss to the Steelers.
Dec 10, 2021 11:30 AM EST
Robinson (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday.
Analysis: With back-to-back capped sessions behind him this week, Robinson appears to be getting closer to his first game action since Week 9. Meanwhile, Marquise Goodwin (foot) actually downgraded from limited Wednesday to no activity Thursday. Friday's injury report will reveal which of the Bears' top three wide receivers (also, Darnell Mooney) have a chance to play Sunday in Green Bay.
Dec 9, 2021 3:02 PM EST
Robinson (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.
Analysis: This marks Robinson's first on-field activity since the Bears' Week 10 bye, as he's missed three consecutive contests due to a hamstring issue. With two sessions to go this week, he may merely need to maintain 'limited' listings on the team's next two injury reports to put himself in a position to play. Ultimately, though, Friday's report will be telling for Robinson's potential to return to game action.
Dec 8, 2021 2:16 PM EST
Robinson (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Cardinals.
Analysis: Robinson has yet to practice since the Bears returned from a Week 10 bye, resulting in his third DNP in a row. The Bears also are without Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs), leaving Darnell Mooney, Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Rodney Adams as the team's available wide receivers Sunday.
Dec 5, 2021 8:42 AM EST
Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: It's his third straight week with no practice participation and a 'doubtful' designation on the final injury report. Robinson didn't play the first two times, and the Bears' WR depth will really be tested if he's out for a third week, as expected, given that Marquise Goodwin (out/foot) is also injured now. That leaves Andy Dalton with Damiere Byrd and Jakeem Grant as his likely WR targets behind top option Darnell Mooney.
Dec 3, 2021 11:42 AM EST
Robinson (hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Thursday.
Analysis: Such has been Robinson's reality since the Bears' Week 10 bye, as he's been listed with DNP next to his name on eight consecutive injury reports in the meantime. He does have one more chance to get on the field this week, but if he doesn't he seems likely to miss a third game in a row. The Bears also held Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs) out of practice Thursday, so Darnell Mooney is by far the healthiest of the team's top three wide receivers.
Dec 2, 2021 2:02 PM EST
Robinson (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Robinson hasn't practiced since before the Bears' Week 10 bye due to a hamstring injury. So far, he's missed two games as a result of the injury, and a third may be on the horizon if he doesn't get back on the field Thursday or Friday. Marquise Goodwin (foot/ribs) also was a DNP on Wednesday, so Darnell Mooney remains the healthiest of Chicago's top three wide receivers at the moment.
Dec 1, 2021 2:14 PM EST
Robinson (hamstring) is listed as inactive Thursday at Detroit.
Analysis: As expected, Robinson will sit out a second straight game due to a hamstring injury. With Robinson on the sideline, the Bears will be down to Darnell Mooney and Marquise Goodwin as their primary wide receivers Week 12.
Nov 25, 2021 8:14 AM EST
Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game in Detroit.
Analysis: For the second week in a row, Robinson didn't practice at all before getting the 'doubtful' tag ahead of game day. He appears set to miss a second consecutive contest as a result, which would set up Darnell Mooney to act as the Bears' No. 1 wide receiver yet again. On the receiving end of passes from both Justin Fields (ribs) and Andy Dalton this past Sunday versus the Ravens, Mooney recorded five catches for 121 yards and one touchdown in a career-high 16 targets.
