Standart a 108-99 home win on March 8.

The Chicago Bears are set to sign Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson and Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton Kendall Wright Color Rush Jersey , giving quarterback Mitchell Trubisky some playmaking targets.

Robinson told ESPN he plans to sign a three-year, $42 million contract, while two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press Tuesday that Burton is leaving the Philadelphia Eagles after agreeing to a $32 million, four-year deal.

Chicago also agreed to a deal with Atlanta Falcons receiver Taylor Gabriel, and Miami Dolphins kicker Cody Parkey also plans to sign with the Bears, people familiar with their situations said.

The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deals won’t be announced until the league year begins Wednesday.

The Bears also extended one-year tenders to receivers Cameron Meredith and Joshua Bellamy along with cornerback Bryce Callahan, giving them the right to match any offers they receive in free agency.

A 2015 Pro Bowl selection, Robinson was impressed by new Bears coach Matt Nagy and told ESPN, ”I like what he did” as offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs. Robinson also tweeted ”What’s good Chicago!!!?” with a picture of himself in a Bulls game jersey on Tuesday.

The Bears were looking to upgrade their struggling receiving corps and give Trubisky more dependable targets.

The versatile Burton gets a chance to be the No. 1 tight end on the Bears after catching 23 passes for 248 yards and five TDs in Philadelphia’s championship season. He also threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles in the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory over New England.

Robinson had a strong training camp last year and looked like he would be an integral part of the offense. But he tore the ACL in his left knee on Jacksonville’s third play of the season and had surgery the following week. The Jaguars went on to win the AFC South and advance to the conference title game.

Robinson has missed 21 games in four seasons, though Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said at the NFL scouting combine he is ”right on schedule” in his recovery from the torn ACL.

A second-round draft pick from Penn State Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey , Robinson has 202 catches for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games. He had 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015, establishing himself as one of the best receivers in franchise history. His production dropped in 2016, with 73 receptions for 883 yards and six scores.

But at 24, he’s young and fills a big need for the rebuilding Bears. Chicago’s leading receiver last year was Kendall Wright with 59 receptions for 614 yards.

Gabriel had 33 catches for 378 yards and a touchdown last season. He has 132 receptions for 1,819 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons with Atlanta and Cleveland.

The Bears are banking on Trubisky’s development to help them end a string of losing seasons. General manager Ryan Pace staked his reputation to the quarterback by trading up a spot with San Francisco last year to draft him with the No. 2 overall pick.

Parkey made 21 of 23 field goals in his lone season with Miami. He worked with new Bears special teams coordinator Chris Tabor as a member of the Cleveland Browns in 2016, after spending his first two years with the Eagles.

The Bears waived Connor Barth and signed Cairo Santos in November. Santos then suffered a season-ending groin injury, and Mike Nugent finished the season as Chicago’s kicker.

The Bears fired coach John Fox after going 5-11 and finishing last in the NFC North for the fourth straight year. The Bears have missed the playoffs 10 of the past 11 seasons and have not finished with a winning record since 2012.

Back in the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Philadelphia 76ers got a bit of a pick-me-up on Thursday as they prepared for Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup with the Miami Heat at 5 p.m. on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

“We had a nice team dinner M.J. Stewart Color Rush Jersey , went over the game plan, shared a message from Julius Erving, Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson, exchanged some stories, some well swishes, and we wake up this morning and reset the game plan,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “They understand the magnitude of this time of year.”

It would be understandable if at least a few of the Sixers players didn’t.

The last time third-seeded Philadelphia won 50 regular-season games — the 2000-01 season — Ben Simmons was 4 years old. His backup, No. 1 draft pick Markelle Fultz, was 2, and he turned 3 while the 76ers were in the midst of their postseason run to the NBA Finals that season.

It hasn’t been 18 years since the 76ers started “The Process Tarvarius Moore Color Rush Jersey ,” though it may have felt that way. But even in this better-than-anticipated season, the team feels excited and prepared for its first playoff run since 2012.

Even the absence of star young center Joel Embiid — who, Brown confirmed, will miss the beginning of the playoffs as he recovers from a broken orbital bone — is doing little to dampen Philadelphia’s spirits.

“We prepare the same way we’ve been preparing the last seven or so games without him,” said Simmons, who has averaged a triple-double over the last month. “Stick with our defense, stick with our offense. We’re ready to play; I love stepping up and playing against the best competition.”

Against the sixth-seeded Heat, Embiid’s presence could play a major factor.

Miami has a pair of stout centers in Hassan Whiteside, one of the league’s best defenders, and rookie Bam Adebayo Authentic Jaleel Scott Jersey Elite Womens Youth Big&Tall Nike Baltimore Ravens NFL Shop Free Shipping , who is one of the league’s best rebounders per 48 minutes.

“They are tremendous rim protectors,” Brown said. “You better go to jump or you better find perimeter shooters, because anything soft or non-purposeful is very difficult with those two bodies in there.”

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said the Heat could turn to Adebayo more against a 76ers squad missing one of the premier post players in the game.

“He certainly brings something that could be needed in this series, which is that energy and physicality under the rim,” Spoelstra said. “This is a big offensive rebounding team and you need more of your best rebounders out there.”

Both teams enter the matchup coming off good Aprils, though the 76ers come in as the hottest team in the NBA with a franchise-best 16 straight wins. Miami ended the regular season winners of five of eight.

“This is a great competition,” Spoelstra said. “You look at our games, we split them 2-2 and we had some crazy games. Both teams had big leads and lost them. This is what you want. Usually the 3-6 matchup is very competitive.”

Neither team dominated the season series, with all four games between the teams taking place during a five-week stretch from early February to early March. Philadelphia won at home, 103-97 Giants Saquon Barkley Jersey , on Feb. 2, followed by a 104-102 Miami road win on Feb. 14. The teams met again two weeks later in Miami, with the 76ers scoring a 102-101 win, and the Heat closed out the season series with a 108-99 home win on March 8.

“They played us hard; they were really physical with us, especially down in Miami,” Sixers guard J.J. Redick said. “They run multiple actions on offense so you really have to defend for the whole shot clock. They have a deep roster with a bunch of guys who play hard and play together. It’s a big challenge for us.”
