Allen Robinson on red-zone freeze: I have ‘trust in the coaches’

After his agent blasted the Bears’ red-zone strategy on Twitter, wide receiver Allen Robinson said he doesn’t “really get too caught up in that.”

“Whatever’s called, I run what’s called,” he said. “I’ve said that since Day 1.

‘‘Hopefully in these next six games, we can get down there first and get some more red-zone opportunities. Then I should come away with more red-zone touchdowns.”

Robinson has only seven red-zone targets, which ranks third on the team. Tight end Jimmy Graham, by contrast, has 13.

“You’ve got to trust in your coaches,” he said. “You’ve got to trust and believe that the things they’re calling and dialing up are going to be successful. I have that trust in the coaches.”
