Eagles WRs coach Mike Groh belives Alshon Jeffery is "behind" mentally after missing time early in camp.
Groh came to this conclusion after Jeffery ran a bad route in Thursday's preseason game. The play was one the Eagles have run two different ways in practice and Jeffery seemed to be confused by it. "Anytime you miss the amount of time that he did, he's a little bit behind," said Groh. "Fortunately, we have time for him to catch up." Jeffery obviously isn't grasping the team's playbook as quickly as Groh had hoped, but he still has three weeks to cram before Week 1. At least Jeffery's shoulder, which had been bothering him at the start of camp, is no longer an issue. Aug 20 - 9:06 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Eagles' second preseason game.

This was Jeffery's first time playing in a preseason game with the Eagles. His first two targets and only incompletions were bad overthrows by Wentz. Being targeted on nearly half of Wentz's pass attempts is a great sign for a player who has previously thrived off volume.

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) has resumed practicing at Eagles camp.

He missed four days with a shoulder strain. Jeffery has battled shoulder problems before in addition to frequent soft-tissue injuries, but he should be considered healthy going forward. We prefer Jeffery's value in the fourth round of 12-team fantasy drafts, although he frequently goes in the third.

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) missed his third practice in a row on Thursday.

Jeffery suffered the injury during Saturday's practice and has not participated since. Neither the receiver nor coach Doug Pederson seems concerned about the issue, and ESPN's Tim McManus reports he could get back on the field Friday. Still, it is an inauspicious start for a receiver who has dealt with myriad injuries the last two years.

Alshon Jeffery is working with Carson Wentz in North Dakota.

Jeffery asked for bison burger recommendations in Fargo on Twitter over the weekend, and Jeff Kerr of 247Sports reports he is being joined in North Dakota by Jordan Matthews, Torrey Smith, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, Trey Burton, Bryce Treggs, and Shelton Gibson. These meetups happen for most teams, but it could prove important for the Eagles with two new primary options in the passing game. Jeffery is easily the most important of those additions, and he should return WR2 value as long as he stays healthy.

Eagles WRs coach Mike Groh said Alshon Jeffery had his best offseason since 2013.

Groh worked with Jeffery for three seasons in Chicago including his 2013 breakout. "Pleased with where he is physically, mentally I think he is in a good place," Groh said. "Learning a new system and working on the chemistry with Carson [Wentz] and everything like that, but it's been a good spring for him." His ability to stay on the field will always be the question, but Jeffery should return to the 1,000-yard ranks if he stays healthy. He is a solid WR2.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson listed Alshon Jeffery among the players who stood out during OTAs.

The Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski agrees, writing Jeffery has made the difficult catches look "easy." Limited to 21 games both because of injury and suspension the last two years, Jeffery's ability to stay on the field will always be a concern, but his talent on it has never been in question. If healthy, he should provide the true No. 1 option Carson Wentz was desperate for last season.
Jun 12 - 9:11 AM's Eliot Shorr-Parks wasn't overly impressed with Alshon Jeffery's performance at OTAs.

When asked if Jeffery has "stood out" in practice, Shorr-Parks replied, "Ehhhhhh." Shorr-Parks conceded that Jeffery has looked "good," but said his performance hasn't spawned many "wow" moments. It goes without saying that all practice observations in early June should be taken with a major grain of salt, though Jeffery has plenty to prove after an underwhelming 2016. Most early mock drafts have Jeffery going in the mid-to-late third round.

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.

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'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.
