Alshon Jeffery Wants To Sign With Contender

Unable to agree on a long-term contract extension, the Bears placed their franchise tag on Jeffery last season, guaranteeing him $14.599 million. I also want to see what other free agents may be attracted to the same teams I'll be looking at. He had 304 receptions, 26 touchdowns, 4,549 yards receiving, averaging 15 yards per catch and was selected to the 2013 Pro Bowl after posting almost 1,500 yards receiving and 89 receptions. He was also suspended four games for violating the NFL's PED policy.

"I don't have any hard feelings towards the Bears - it's all love", Jeffery said.

"A lot's got to play out", Pace said. They won't find a starting quarterback in free agency - unless Tony Romo decides to sign with the Bears, for some reason - so that position likely will be addressed in the draft. "I'm trying to work with you all, but I hope you appreciate that".

The Chicago Bears have been the laughingstock of the NFC North for the past six years.

"I'd say [Jeffery] knows us better than anybody else he could potentially go to", Fox said. Typically with these things, it comes down to the market value. It's like walking into a store right now at this time of year and there's no price tags.
