I mentioned this on the free agent primer podcast we did last week, saying that he wouldn't have competition for targets with the Bears, whereas if he went to the 49ers, he'd be competing for targets with Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin, and even Trent Taylor at times.

Both wide receiver Cameron Meredith and Josh Bellamy were given original round tenders at $1.907 million, per the Chicago Tribune.

The Bears certainly aren't done adding at receiver. Best guess is that the Bears would match any reasonable offer sheet, at least for Meredith and Callahan. Even going back to the prior year in free agency, Mohamed Sanu signed a five-year deal worth $32.5 million with $14 million in guarantees.

And they still might not, because reports Tuesday morning had Watkins agreeing to three years for $48 million with the Chiefs.

Restricted free agents are players with three accrued seasons. He had a monster year in 2015, with 80 catches for 1,400 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdown receptions, and he appeared to be on the cusp of joining the elite list of receivers in the NFL.

They had big success with Big Little Lies , so it's hardly surprising that Nicole Kidman and writer/producer David E. Casey Bloys, HBO's programming president, said he couldn't wait to "bring this show to life".

He is coming off a torn left ACL suffered on the third offensive play of the 2017 season opener at Houston.

Speaking on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio on Monday, Robinson singled out the Chicago Bears as a potential fit.

The Bears have nobody who can blow to the top off the defense, nobody who scares other secondaries, nobody who opens up other areas that makes teammates more productive.

There was no ideal solution to the Bears' problems at wide receiver in free agency, but Robinson had the best pedigree of the group. This is a vulnerable spot for them but the team has a ton of cap space and could be letting him set his own market.
