Allen Robinson is one of many great free agents in the 2022 offseason. He is easily one of the two best wide receivers in the class, hands down. Many teams will be vying for his services, but here are three of the best possible landing spots for Allen Robinson.

Robinson and the former Bears brass was on rocky footing. His targets went down precipitously in 2021-2022, which was put heavily on former coach Matt Nagy. He was also unhappy playing under the franchise tag, which was a move made by ex-general manager Ryan Pace. Those two are gone now, and that might be enough to convince Robinson to stay.
He can be the number one option in this offense, and learn with and coach up Justin Fields under the new management. Robinson would probably ask for a lot of money from Chicago as a show of good faith, but if the new hires have the team trending upward, he could be a big part of that.
Robinson left the Jags in 2018 to sign his three-year deal with the Bears. He could now return to the team that drafted him in free agency. His renewed interest would likely be because of the new head coach, Doug Pederson and number one overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence at quarterback. Lawrence had a bad season statistically last year, but that was mostly due to Urban Meyer’s tumultuous tenure as head coach.
If he can be the quarterback that scouts and fans predicted he could be, Robinson could have an absolutely huge season in Jacksonville. No one can be sure if that will be the case, but it is a relatively safe bet. He could also demand a decent contract and still be a number one option. The move back makes sense.
Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders will be a popular rumor for every offensive free agent. They managed to reach the postseason under an interim head coach, which means the team has enough talent. They also now have the man behind the Patriots’ offense, Josh McDaniels, heading up the team now. A coach with six Super Bowl rings has to be a draw, regardless of his last head coaching tenure.
Derek Carr loves to sling it deep and go for big plays, which plays in Robinson’s favor. The team also lost Henry Ruggs III to a very public tragedy, which means Hunter Renfrow is now the number one option, and Robinson can take that mantle quickly.
