Jeffery Signs 4-Year Deal With Bears
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract with second-round draft pick Alshon Jeffery. A receiver from South Carolina, the 6-foot-3, 212-pound Jeffery had 3,042 yards for his career, making him one of only three Southeast Conference receivers to go over 3,000 yards. He had 1,517 receiving yards as a sophomore in 2010, but just 762 last year. Jeffery gives Chicago another big receiver to go with the 6-foot-4 Brandon Marshall. The Bears announced the agreement on Wednesday. ESPN reports the deal is worth $4.52 million, with a nearly $1.75 signing bonus.
