Tarik Cohen ‘left money on the plate’ in push for Allen Robinson’s extension

Tarik Cohen should — and probably did — get every dime he can out of the Bears, but Allen Robinson’s status was very much on his mind as he negotiated and celebrated his contract extension, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Bears gave Cohen, a running back they picked in the fourth round in 2017, a three-year, $17.3 million contract late Saturday. The timing was slightly surprising because there was a swell of momentum within Halas Hall to secure Robinson, the best wide receiver they have had in years, while it appeared the team would make Cohen prove himself coming off a down season.

But in the ongoing push to keep Robinson around, Cohen digressed from the conversation about his new deal to campaign for his teammate.

“Regardless of whether I got mine or not, it’s definitely time for him to get his,” Cohen said. “I even left some money on the plate. I took less so he could get more, so to say. I would definitely love to see my boy get extended. It means a lot to the team.”
