Each year since 2013, the Chicago chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America has voted for their Chicago Bears Good Guy, which is an award given to the player who is most cooperative with the media. This years recipient is wide receiver Allen Robinson.

Not only has Robinson been the brightest star on the offense all season long in leading the team in receptions (89), yards (1,076), and touchdowns (7) through 15 games, but he’s been front and center after each game to address the tough questions head on.

“A total pro in every facet of his job,” Tweeted Sun Times beat reporter Jason Lieser of the 26-year old Bears receiver.

Lieser’s Sun Times colleague, Patrick Finley, Tweeted that Robinson’s “professionalism made our jobs a bit easier all season long.”

The Chicago Tribune’s Dan Weiderer shared via Twitter that “Robinson has been a true pro all year in dealing with the media.”

Rich Campbell, also from the Tribune, Tweeted that, “A-Rob’s professionalism, insight and deep-rooted respect for reporters set him apart during a tough season of incisive questions and unflattering subject matter. He has been great on and off the field

Here are a few other Tweets from Chicago media members about Robinson.

Past winners have been quarterback Josh McCown (2013), safety Ryan Mundy (2014), offensive lineman Matt Slauson (2015), cornerback Tracy Porter (2016), tight end Zach Miller (2017), and corner Prince Amukamara (2018).

For those wondering, it was quarterback Mitchell Trubisky that was the runner-up to Robinson for this award.
