jaguars allen robinson jersey
Sometimes, when fans feel betrayed by an NFL player leaving for another team, it can mean a fiery fate for jerseys of said player. One Jacksonville Jaguars fan, however, decided to have a little fun with this practice.
On Twitter, Jaguars fan Brett Gnarley recorded a video of himself with an Allen Robinson jersey, lamenting how the two “could have been together forever” before taking out a lighter, presumably to set fire to the now-Chicago Bears wide receiver. However, Gnarley proceeded to psych out the viewers, instead taking a candle out of his Robinson jersey and lighting it, before placing the jersey neatly and respectfully in his closet.
Although he is now in Second City, Robinson will likely thank this fan for his not immolating his Jaguars jersey – As will Gnarley’s wallet, as setting fire to a $100 jersey is not a wise decision.
Top free agent Allen Robinson has agreed to join the Bears, and he’s clearly excited about making the move to Chicago. The wide receiver recently posted on his Twitter a picture of him wearing a Bulls jersey with the caption, “What’s good Chicago!!!?”
Okay, so here’s the fun part: What jersey is he wearing? Most likely, it’s a custom jersey because he wears No. 15 in the NFL, but I like to think that it’s actually a John Lucas III classic.
It looks like he’s getting the hookup with Cubs and Blackhawks jerseys, too. (What about the White Sox, Fanatics?!)

Robinson is expected to become one of the Bears’ top wide receivers next season as they look to surround Mitch Trubisky with more talent. The 24-year-old missed most of the 2017 season after suffering an ACL tear, but he’s expected to recover in time for the start of the 2018 season and should address one of the team’s biggest needs.
The former Jaguars wideout had his breakout in 2015 when he recorded 80 catches for 1,400 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns. He followed up that Pro Bowl performance with 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns in 2016 before having last season cut short after just one game.
Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson intends to sign a three-year, $42 million deal with the Chicago Bears — barring any last-minute snags — when free agency opens Wednesday, he told ESPN’s Josina Anderson late Monday night.
Robinson, drafted in the second round in 2014, has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games. He is coming off a torn left ACL suffered on the third offensive play of the 2017 season opener at Houston.
Robinson, 24, had 48 catches for 548 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie before a knee injury ended his season after 10 games. He had a monster year in 2015, with 80 catches for 1,400 yards and a franchise-record 14 touchdown receptions, and he appeared to be on the cusp of joining the elite list of receivers in the NFL.
However, the Jaguars’ offense struggled in 2016, and so did Robinson. He was targeted the same amount of times as he was in 2015 (151 times) but his yardage and touchdown numbers dropped off: 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns. After leading the NFL with 31 catches of 20 or more yards in 2015, Robinson had just 11 in 2016.
His per-catch average also dropped by 5.4 yards from 2015 to 2016. Robinson had a fantastic training camp, however, and appeared poised for a big season in 2017 before his injury.
