Denard Robinson to join Bears for minicamp


  • HB Denard Robinson has reported to Bears minicamp, where he will attempt to come away with an offer. The former Michigan quarterback played running back for the Jaguars the past four seasons.
  • Robinson has never graded above 60 in a season thus far. After improving his grade in his first three seasons, Robinson took a slight step back in 2016 with a 58.1 grade (down from 59.6 in 2015).
  • Though not his highest-graded season, Robinson’s busiest season came in 2014, when he rushed for 582 yards and 4 touchdowns on 135 carries. That year, he finished with a breakaway percentage (percentage of yards that come on runs of 15 yards or more) of 33.8, good for sixth in the league.
  • Robinson has seen his yards after contact per attempt decline each year, and last year failed to force a missed tackle on any of his 44 touches.

    I think they should make Robinson the personal chauffeur for Ryan Pace.

  • Tim Edell

    He will have a very hard time making the team

      That’s assuming the Bears don’t have 25 guys on IR again.
