Although, Robinson was active for all 16 regular season games this year he obviously wasn't 100 percent. The severity of his knee injury slowed him on the field and his numbers suffered.
Needing just 35 receptions to become an unrestricted free agent the veteran looked to be on his way out on his terms. However, Robinson finished the season with just 21 catches for 244 yards and three touchdowns.
According to the Chicago Tribune Robinson's agent, Ken Sarnoff, said Bears general manager Jerry Angelo "asked me to look into a trade to see if there is anything there. The good thing with Marcus now is that he is fully healthy and would be able to come right in and start working with a team's quarterbacks throughout this off-season."
It's unlikely a team will give up much for Robinson, because the receiver would likely be released if a trade can't be worked out. Robinson is scheduled to make a base salary of $2.6 million in 2003, which is too high a price for a team's fourth receiver.
