With the offseason underway, at least the franchise tags portion, we are starting to see articles getting players to optimal situations.

Bleacher Report did that with a look at five trades to create great offenses and they have the Cardinals involved in the coverage.

From B/R:

Arizona Cardinals Receive: Allen Robinson II

Chicago Bears Receive: 2021 first-round Pick (No. 16), 2021 fifth-round pick (No. 144) and 2022 third-round pick

I think when you look at just the compensation, it is a fair deal. The Cardinals get a top-ten receiver in the NFL to pair with DeAndre Hopkins and create maybe the best pure receiving duo in the NFL.

While Robinson is a free agent, B/R suggests a sign and trade scenario:

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero raised the possibility of a tag-and-trade scenario with Allen Robinson II since the Bears haven’t talked to him about a long-term deal in months.

That puts Robinson in Arizona on a one-year franchise tag deal, but they should be able to workout a long-term extension in this scenario.

The Arizona Cardinals could cut 32-year-old cornerback Robert Alford, who hasn’t played a down since 2018 because of season-ending leg and pectoral injuries. The move would save the team $7.5 million and allow the front office to sign Robinson on a long-term deal.

It would be a nice fit for the Cardinals and again give Cardinals fans an answer to what will Steve Keim do with their first round pick.

Robinson is a sure thing, one of the better wide receivers in the NFL and a big target to put opposite of Hopkins.

Would you make this deal if you are the Cardinals?
