Bears just fine with Alshon Jeffery signing Eagles' one-year deal

Jeffery, 27, spent his first five seasons with the Chicago Bears, where he played previous year under the franchise tag. However, Philadelphia just Tuesday came to terms with veteran wide out Torrey Smith on a three-year, $15 million deal that ate up $5 million of cap space.

Between Jeffery's fire and Groh's tutelage, the second-year wideout had a career-high 89 receptions and 1,421 yards along with seven touchdowns.

Bolstering the talent at receiver became one of the top priorities of executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman and personnel director Joe Douglas after Eagles' receivers dropped 24 passes in 2016 one year after leading the league in the dubious category.

When asked why he chose the Eagles, Jeffery explained that it was the best decision for him and his family.

But Jeffery also displayed the desire to be a better player, and build upon those numbers from the first season.

The Eagles also reached a one-year deal with guard Chance Warmack, formerly a first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans.

Jeffery said his goal is for Wentz to win the NFL's MVP award, and he relayed that message to Wentz in a text message upon signing a one-year deal with the Eagles as opposed to a multi-year deal with another team.

But in 2015 Jeffery was limited to nine games due to injuries to his calf, hamstring, groin and shoulder, and his production dipped to 54 catches for 807 yards and four touchdowns.

His last standout season came in 2014, when he had 85 catches for 1,133 yards receiving and 10 TDs.

So, what is Jeffery looking for, other than money, that he could not get in Chicago?

The addition of Jeffery and Smith should force the Eagles and Wentz to stretch the field more.

The Philadelphia Eagles gave rookie quarterback Carson Wentz the keys to the kingdom immediately in 2016. Going up against up Alabama's All-American cornerback Marlon Humphrey, Williams caught eight passes for 94 yards and one touchdown.

"I don't really think about that. Just being more careful", Jeffery said.

Jeffery enjoyed fast success during his tenure with the Bears.

The departure of Marshall to the New York Jets made Jeffery the Bears' leading receiver.
