The Jacksonville Jaguars need to consider bringing Allen Robinson back.
Looking back, it made sense for the Jaguars not to re-sign Allen Robinson back in 2018. Even though he hauled in 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015, his production took a dip the following two years. On the other hand, most of former general manager David Caldwell’s roster decisions were questionable, and parting ways with the wide receiver might not have been the best in retrospect.
Since signing with the Chicago Bears, Robinson has caught 255 receptions for 3,151 yards and 17 touchdowns. Moreover, he’s only dropped six passes in the last three years, has the most contested targets since 2018, and has done it with inconsistent quarterback play.
Robinson will be one of the most coveted free agents in the open market and will likely demand top compensation for his services. Nevertheless, think about how formidable the Jaguars’ wide receiver cops would be with Robinson playing alongside DJ Chark Jr and Laviska Shenault Jr.
The Jaguars may have more pressing needs this offseason but the opportunity to reunite with the Penn State standout is worth discussing. It’s not often that a top-echelon wide receiver hits the open market, especially one the team knows well.
