Chicago Bears lose WR Alshon Jeffery, who signs with Philadelphia Eagles

Former Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Chicago Bears have lost WR Alshon Jeffery, who today signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles worth $14 million. 

Jeffery, the club's 2012 second-round pick, earned two Pro Bowl appearances while in Chicago but injuries and a lack of elite production hampered him the last two years. His last quality season was in 2014 and the Bears clearly weren't willing to pay him at an elite price. 

The Bears were one of four teams -- which also included the Colts and Vikings -- in the running for Jeffery at the start of the 2017 NFL Season. 

With Jeffery gone, the Bears will be heavily reliant on former first-round WR Kevin White, who has played just four games his first two seasons, and emerging third-year wideout Cameron Meredith. 

Don't be surprised if the Bears add more pieces to the receiving corps through free agency, the draft or both.
