Eagles coach Doug Pederson thinks Alshon Jeffery's presence will help the other receivers.
"For us, he brings some leadership into that room, and makes that room better," Pederson said. "The experience is obviously a big factor in what we're doing, and he can lead by example." Jeffery's work ethic was questioned at times in Chicago, but the Eagles clearly think he will be a good influence for the likes of Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham. A true No. 1 receiver, Jeffery will also take pressure off Torrey Smith and especially Jordan Matthews, who were both out of place as top options. As long as Jeffery can stay on the field, the Eagles should have a much better receiving corps this season. Mar 30 - 11:41 AM

Alshon Jeffery's one-year contract with the Eagles contains $4.5 million in incentives.

Reported as a $14 million pact, the deal is really for $9.5 million with the $4.5 million in incentives, which involve anything from playing time to team wins. It is a shockingly poor deal for a player who was considered the best receiver on the market, although it now appears clear NFL teams did not feel the same way. The good news is Jeffery should be motivated to stay in shape and healthy so he can take another run at free agency next spring.
Mar 10 - 4:59 PM

Eagles signed WR Alshon Jeffery, formerly of the Bears, to a one-year, $14 million contract.

Jeffery reportedly turned down a multi-year deal from the Vikings to accept the "prove it" deal from Philly. It is a risk after he missed seven games with injury in 2015 and served a four-game suspension last season, but it also gives him a shot at a massive deal next year if he puts up a big season. It is also a win for the Eagles, who desperately needed a playmaking presence on the outside. Jeffery has put monstrous upside on NFL film, and posted huge numbers in 2013-14. Still only 27, he could easily bounce back to top-18 fantasy status in 2017.
Mar 9 - 4:05 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Vikings are interested in free agent Alshon Jeffery.

They join the Colts and Eagles, in addition to the Bears. It's an admission of worry about Laquon Treadwell's development. Jeffery would join Adam Thielen on the outside in Minnesota, bookending Stefon Diggs.
Mar 9 - 3:37 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent Alshon Jeffery is leaning toward signing with the Eagles.

The Eagles badly need Jeffery to pick them, especially after failing to land Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, Kenny Britt, and Kenny Stills as free agents. Philly needs a No. 1 receiver in the worst way, and getting Jeffery, the top free agent on the market, would be huge for Carson Wentz. Jeffery has also been connected to the Colts, 49ers, and Bears. He should sign Thursday.
Mar 9 - 2:17 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts and Eagles are "making a strong push" to sign free agent Alshon Jeffery.

Both names are interesting. The Colts already have a strong top two with T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief and big needs on defense while the Eagles just gave Torrey Smith $15 million over three years. Philly could certainly still use a true No. 1, however. The Bears remain strong contenders to re-sign him as well.
Mar 9 - 11:20 AM

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports other teams believe the Bears have offered free agent WR Alshon Jeffery $13 million per year.

It is below the $14-15 million he was projected to land, but the fact we have not written a blurb about Jeffery since Saturday suggests his market is much quieter than anyone expected. That said, $13 million per year would still tie him with T.Y. Hilton as the sixth-highest paid receiver in the league. Jeffery returning to Chicago is beginning to look more and more likely.
Mar 9 - 10:10 AM

Free agent Alshon Jeffery's agent had a "positive meeting" with Chicago.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says both sides are "more than open" to a reunion. It's going to be hard to keep Jeffery from hitting the market as the top wideout available, but Chicago has the cap space to get a deal done. Jeffery is expected to command $15 million annually.
Mar 4 - 4:31 PM

Free agent Alshon Jeffery is looking to play for a contender.

"I’m looking at the teams that obviously need a wide receiver, but also put me in the best situation to win a championship right now," said Jeffery. "I also want to see what other free agents may be attracted to the same teams I’ll be looking at." Jeffery obviously values winning, something he didn't do much of during his five-year stay in Chicago. Jeffery is easily the top receiver in this year's free agent class and has been linked most to the 49ers, Eagles and Titans.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports the 49ers will "go hard" after free agent Alshon Jeffery when the market opens on March 9.

Much as Kyle Shanahan had Andre Johnson in Houston and Julio Jones in Atlanta, Jeffery is a prototypical "X" receiver who would give San Francisco instant credibility at a position where Torrey Smith currently sits atop the depth chart. Jeffery is expected to command $15 million annually, if not more. The 49ers are flush with salary cap space to the extent that they can win any bidding war.
Mar 2 - 7:59 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the 49ers, Titans, and Eagles will be "potential suitors" for free agent Alshon Jeffery.

Anderson adds the Bears are interested in bringing Jeffery back, but it seems like that ship has sailed. The reality is most teams will be interested in Jeffery, who is easily the best receiver available in free agency. Jeffery could push A.J. Green ($15 million AAV) to be the second-highest paid receiver in the league.
Mar 2 - 9:50 AM

Speaking on Good Morning Football, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo said the Titans will "make a push to bring in some receiver help."

He added Tennessee will be "very active this offseason" and are "prepared to spend." The comments came up in a discussion about Alshon Jeffery, who is certain to land a monster deal as the best receiver available in free agency. If the Titans balk at Jeffery's asking price, they could turn to the draft to find a true No. 1 receiver. Clemson's Mike Williams, Western Michigan's Corey Davis, and Washington's John Ross are all first-round prospects.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears will not use the franchise tag on free agent Alshon Jeffery.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson confirmed RapSheet's report and added that the two sides haven't discussed an extension in weeks, putting Jeffery's chances of re-signing with the Bears at "slim." Tagging Jeffery would cost $17.5 million, pricey for a player who hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2014 and was suspended four games for PEDs last year. Jeffery will still land a monster deal as free agency's top wideout. The Eagles are fully expected to make a run at him.
Feb 27 - 9:19 AM

Franchise tagging free agent Alshon Jeffery for the second straight year would cost the Bears $17.5 million.

While the Bears could theoretically fit that number under their cap, it is an exorbitant amount for a wide receiver, particularly one who has missed 11 games over the past two seasons to injuries and a suspension. Tagging Jeffery again seems unrealistic, which means the Bears would likely have to sign him long term to keep him. 27 years old and the clear-cut top receiver available, it is in Jeffery's best financial interest to test the open market.
Feb 14 - 12:26 PM

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, "several league sources anticipate" the Eagles making a run at impending free agent Alshon Jeffery.

The Eagles desperately need an upgrade at wide receiver and Jeffery is easily the best wideout on the market. DeSean Jackson has also been linked to Philadelphia (where he played from 2008-13) while Torrey Smith could be an option if the 49ers make him available. The Eagles have a promising young quarterback in Carson Wentz. Now they just need to give him some weapons.
