The salary cap is expected to drop to 175M next year, and the way they are talking about this Covid 19 that there may not be enough vaccines for everyone until spring of 2022. If this is true, there could be a repeat of the NFL season in 2021, with either no fans in person, or possibly only 25% capacity. If this is the case the salary cap could drop again for 2022, possibly to 160M, or maybe even around 150M. Plus television ratings are way down, I think it was the Sunday night game was down like 38%. Like it or not it has everything to do with the protest, which people are really growing tired of, even Herschel Walker said it needed to end, that it wasn't the right platform during NFL games or sports in general to mix Political agendas, and protest with sports. Sports used to be a distraction from the problems in everyday life, but now they have become part of the problems that present everyday. My point is the athletes really need to be careful, sponsors are only going to pay for advertising, and pay the big money the NFL charges for commercials if viewership has high numbers, not numbers that continue to fall. My point to all of this is I think the Bears are very concerned about the salary cap dropping well below the predicted numbers. They already owe way too much for Mack, Jackson, Fuller, Leno, Foles, Trevathan, and others. I don't think it is a wise move to commit 17 to 18 million a year, or possibly more during these uncertain times. And what really bothers me the most is there are people who are struggling to put food on their table, and pay their mortgage payments or rent, and Robinson is like a spoiled kid crying about what he is making. He has averaged 14 million a year for the last 2 years, and will average that much again this year. IMHO he needs to just be quiet, play ball, and see what happens at the end of the season, if I am not mistaken he needs to fulfill his contractual obligations for this contract before he worries about the next one, and stop becoming a clubhouse distraction with you whining and pouting.
