According to a report from ESPN's Josina Anderson, Bears' wideout Alshon Jeffery may prefer the Philadelphia Eagles when he officially hits the free agent market. In 2016, he played in 12 games and managed to haul in 52 passes for 821 yards with a career-low two touchdowns. They obviously have a very good wide receiver in T.Y. Hilton, but pairing him with someone like Jeffery - who's also a very good receiver and who has good size - would make the offense even more risky and give Andrew Luck more weapons to work with. Jeffery and/or agent end up creating the impression that he got the best receiver deal in free agency, even though he didn't.

For starters, Alshon gives the Eagles a true #1 wide receiver that they have been lacking.

The Eagles introduced Jeffery at a news conference on Friday, but he also released a statement to The Player's Tribune to express his thanks to the Bears and Chicago.

"It's more just focusing on what I'm putting in my body", he said.

"I'm just focusing on this season".

ROE of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) stands at 9.8
The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through this hyperlink . The company rocked its 52-Week High of $64.36 on Feb 14, 2017 and touched its 52-Week Low of $48.45 on Jun 27, 2016.

Demps, who turns 32 in June, played in and started 13 games for the Texans last season and had six interceptions to go with nine passes defensed and 55 tackles.

Rapoport reported that the Minnesota offered Jeffery more years and more money, but Jeffery was willing to gamble on himself, by signing a one year deal. If Jeffery can produce like he did at his best in Chicago, he will easily be Wentz's best weapon since the Eagles drafted him. He missed four games while on a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy one year after missing seven games with injuries. "I mean, how do I tell the city of Chicago and the Bears organization how much I love and appreciate them?"

Jeffery said it's paramount to stay on the field, because he wants to help the Eagles win a Super Bowl and lift quarterback Carson Wentz to MVP status.

His productivity steadily declined after a 65-catch season with 1,128 yards for the Ravens in 2013.

As it sits now, Kevin White, Cameron Meredith and the newly signed Markus Wheaton are the top three receivers on the Bears' depth chart. "Like I said, the sky's the limit for him".
