NFL Free Agency 2018: 49ers, Bears appear to be favorites in Allen Robinson sweepstakes

Looks as if the top wide receiver on the market may be headed to San Francisco or the Windy City After the Jacksonville Jaguars surprisingly decided not to place Allen Robinson on the franchise tag, the 24-year old wide receiver jumped to the top of the free agency market despite coming off an ACL injury. Given the uncertainty of Michael Crabtree’s return, the only wide receiver locked in as a starter for the Raiders is Amari Cooper.
