Trubisky on ARob extension: 'They've just got to get that done'

Bears

First came Cordarrelle Patterson. Then Tarik Cohen, Darnell Mooney, and Anthony Miller followed. Over the past week or so, close to half a dozen Bears players have come out and publicly lobbied for the Bears to sign star wide receiver Allen Robinson to a contract extension. It's been a whole thing. 

On Wednesday, quarterback Mitch Trubisky was the latest to throw his weight behind Robinson and nudge at the Bears to get a deal done. Speaking to media during his weekly press conference, here's what he had to say: 

That’s my guy. I know there is a lot of talk about his contract and all that. And hopefully they take care of him. Because me and the rest of the guys on the team want him around. That’s very obvious. We all love ARob and we know what he brings to this team. And they’ve just got to get that done. So we can keep him around and continue to take care of business. But we’re not worried about anything else because we know how Allen approaches the game. Practice every single week. So in between the lines and in the locker room, everything has been the same. It’s been awesome. So I can’t really say how much he means to this team and this offense. He has always been there for all the guys on and off the field and when it comes to playmaking ability. 

Robinson addressed the situation on Wednesday, acknowledging that he expects to remain in Chicago through the rest of the season, and that "his heart and spirit" have never wavered from his goal of ending his career with the Bears.
