The NFL trade deadline is rapidly approaching as it will be coming to a close on November 2nd. That means that teams will be scrambling to try and make trades within the next week to better themselves moving forward. For a team like the Chicago Bears, it might be time for them to move on from Allen Robinson before the deadline passes.

Robinson is currently on track to potentially have the worst season of his career through the first seven weeks. The Pro Bowl wideout has just 23 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown in a Chicago offense that doesn’t intend to put the ball in the air often.

While Robinson hasn’t had the typical production we’re accustomed to seeing from him, here are four teams that should try to trade for him ahead of the trade deadline.

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have been mentioned as a team that could acquire Robinson for years now. But with a rookie quarterback in Mac Jones and an inconsistent set of weapons outside of Jakobi Meyers and Hunter Henry, the Patriots could pursue Robinson this season.

If a team does decide to make a move for Robinson, they would likely be doing so to try and convince him to stay in free agency in the upcoming offseason. Robinson is playing under the franchise tag this season, so he’ll become an unrestricted free agent once the season concludes.

New England would be a nice fit for Robinson as they intend to become a playoff team in the near future with a new signal-caller leading the offense. A trade with the Bears is something to keep an eye on.

Philadelphia Eagles

While the Patriots are all-in on Jones as their quarterback, it doesn’t seem as if the Philadelphia Eagles feel the same way about Jalen Hurts. Even though Hurts continues to make plays with his legs, the Eagles would like to see him consistently deliver through the air.

Regardless of who the future quarterback is, Robinson would become a nice running mate with DeVonta Smith at wide receiver. Jalen Reagor hasn’t developed like the team hoped, and Quez Watkins is best suited for a vertical threat role. The Eagles have traded for a Bears wideout before in Alshon Jeffery and they could elect to do so again by landing Allen Robinson.

Washington Football Team

Can the Washington Football Team get some help for Terry McLaurin, please? McLaurin is one of the up-and-coming wide receivers in the NFL that is on his way to becoming a superstar. It doesn’t matter who the quarterback in Washington is, McLaurin just continues to produce impressive numbers.

Outside of McLaurin, the Football Team is relying on rookie Dyami Brown and veteran Adam Humphries to help ease some pressure off of McLaurin with Curtis Samuel sidelined. Washington’s lack of a long-term option at the quarterback position could lead to Robinson not expressing interest in them when he hits free agency, though.

Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are in an awkward spot right now. Are they a team that can compete for a playoff spot in the AFC this season? Given the lack of definitive contenders in the AFC, it’s definitely a possibility.

That being said, the Colts still don’t seem like a team that could make much noise if they were to advance to the postseason. While Carson Wentz has been playing decent this season, he could begin to struggle at any moment. To help Wentz in a passing offense that is missing Parris Campbell and T.Y. Hilton, Robinson could form a talented duo with Michael Pittman Jr.

As the Colts make a hopeful push for the playoffs, Allen Robinson would be a welcomed addition to the passing attack. Making a deal with the Bears would be a very wise decision.
