The Bears appear to be on the verge of landing two big new weapons for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, reportedly agreeing to terms with free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson and tight end Trey Burton.

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network first reported the signing, which is expected to get finalized after free agency officially opens Wednesday. He posted 37 catches for 327 yards and one touchdown in 2016 and 23 receptions for 248 yards and five scores in 2017.

Burton is coming off consecutive solid seasons operating as Zach Ertz's backup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Without Burton's contributions, though, Philadelphia might not have been in the proper situation. "That's what we do here".

$470 billion trade war looms over OECD's optimistic global outlook
The OECD blamed the UK's position on high inflation dampening consumer demand and continued uncertainty about Brexit. National Treasury now anticipates growth of 1.5% in 2018, rising to 2.1% in 2020.

Fans around the National Football League best know him for his role in the "Philly Special" play in Super Bowl LII, where he threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles before the end of the first half. Burton joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014, carved out a role on special teams and then blossomed as a risky offensive playmaker the past two seasons under coach Doug Pederson.

According to published reports, the Bears agreed to a 3-year, $42 million contract with Robinson; and a 4-year, $32 million contract with Burton. Investing in Burton like this would indicate he'd actually be higher on the depth chart, but it's entirely possible the Bears could use both guys in two-tight-end sets.
