Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson has accepted his franchise tag for the 2021 season, the NFL Network reported on Thursday.

Robinson will be paid $17.88 million under the tag this season. He made a base salary of $10.9 million in 2020 with bonuses upping the total to $13 million, per Spotrac.

Robinson, 27, and the Bears have until July 15 to reach a long-term contract extension.
