Since Meredith is a former undrafted free agent, it means the Bears would receive no compensation if Meredith signed an offer sheet elsewhere and they declined to match.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news early Tuesday morning which was followed up by the network's Josina Anderson reporting the terms of the expected three-year deal worth $42million, an annual average that would tie for eighth-largest among current wideout contracts. Robinson told the Florida Times-Union that he'll be ready well ahead of training camp, which is good when considering he'll need as many reps as possible with his new quarterback Mitchell Trubiski.
Allen Robinson is the cream of the crop when it comes to free-agent wide receivers, so many teams and their fans will be eagerly awaiting his decision this week as negotiating begins. In 2015, Robinson caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, putting him in the Pro Bowl.
Much has been written about the Bears' fascination with Robinson, who's coming off ACL surgery on his left knee after making one catch in the Jaguars' opener last season.

OECD Sees Better Outlook, if Trade Escalation Avoided
The OECD blamed the UK's position on high inflation dampening consumer demand and continued uncertainty about Brexit. The higher forecast was in part due to expectations that US tax cuts would boost economic growth there, it said.
Robinson also expressed interest in moving to Chicago.
Trubisky had a solid season for the Bears previous year, completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,193 yards and seven touchdowns.
Adding receivers for Trubisky was a top priority for Pace. Last week, they elected not to franchise him, which would've been worth roughly $16 million. Kendall Wright led Chicago with 59 receptions for 614 yards with one touchdown last season as their top two receivers, Kevin White and Cameron Meredith, both went down to season-ending injuries. Now we wait to see if Robinson can play like it.
