Jacksonville and Robertson-Harris (shoulder) agreed to terms on a three-year, $24.4 million contract Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Robertson-Harris is capable of contributing both as a run defender and pass rusher, so he should bring quality rotational depth to Jacksonville's defensive line. Earning a contract with $14 million in guarantees is a development worth celebrating for the 27-year-old, who went undrafted back in 2016. He's currently recovering from shoulder surgery undergone last November.
The Bears placed Robertson-Harris (shoulder) on injured reserve Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Robertson-Harris is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery to address his shoulder injury, so his placement on IR was an expected move. In the 27-year-old's stead, both Brent Urban and Mario Edwards will be candidates to handle expanded roles bookending the defensive line.
Robertson-Harris (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Robertson-Harris had been a steady contributor to Chicago's front seven Weeks 1 through 8, earning six starts and fielding an average of 30.6 defensive snaps per game over his eight appearances. With the 27-year-old now confirmed out for the remainder of 2020, veterans Brent Urban and Mario Edwards will have to step into more integral roles at defensive end.
Robertson-Harris was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Saints with a shoulder injury. Robertson has started five games for the Bears this season, but he's totaled just nine tackles. Mario Edwards and Brent Urban have both been in the mix all year and should see a ramped-up workload until Robertson-Harris returns.
The Bears tendered Robertson-Harris to a one-year contract Friday. Robertson-Harris played a key rotational role along Chicago's defensive line in 2019, so the decision to keep him around via a restricted free agent tender doesn't come as any sort of surprise. If another club extends an offer sheet to the 26-year-old this summer, Chicago will retain the right to first match the deal.
