Ex-Bears WR Allen Robinson tweeted that Bulls star Zach LaVine should also leave Chicago.

Former Chicago Bears wide receiver Alan Robinson moved to Super Bowl champions the Los Angeles Rams in March, after winning zero playoffs over the past four seasons and experiencing uneven quarterback play. Pro Bowler thinks another Chicago sports star should seek greener prairies. The Bulls guard Zach LaVine.

In a tweet on Tuesday afternoon, Robinson wrote that “Jack Lavigne would be a great fit for Dallas or Portland.” The 28-year-old also tweeted. LA “fits” LaVine, but hasn’t confirmed whether he’s referring to the LA Lakers or the Los Angeles Clippers.

It’s hard to blame Robinson for his stance on Chicago. During his Bears career, the former Penn State star was pitched to him by rookies of Mitchell Trubisky, Nick Foles, Andy Dalton and Justin Fields. His coach came after he fired Matt Nagy. Nevertheless, Robinson produced two seasons of over 95 catches and 1,100 yards.

Like Robinson, LaVine had a brilliant personal record in Chicago, but has yet to make it to the second round of the playoffs. LaVine’s best shot was the Bulls’ only postseason appearance since arriving in the 2017-18 season this year, but the Milwaukee Bucks overpowered them 4-1 in the first round.

LaVine is set to become an unlimited free agent this offseason, so he’s free to take Robinson’s advice if he wants. Whichever team gets LaVine is going to be phenomenal on the offensive side, as the UCLA products have scored at least 24 points and four assists each over the last three seasons.
