Alshon Jeffery looks great so far: Chicago Bears Day 1 Training Camp Recap

The first day of Chicago Bears’ training camp is in the books and there were a few injury scares we need to address right away. The biggest worry was when #1 draft pick Leonard Floyd was carted off the field, but head coach John Fox said that Floyd had been battling an illness the last few days and that’s all this was. “He was sick,” Fox said after practice. “He tried to go. He’s a tough kid; he just didn’t make it through.” Floyd tried to get back on the field, but the trainers insisted that he rest up due to a stomach bug. Two other Bears left practice due to illness as...

Eddie Goldman is the most underrated Bears player

Earlier today Sam brought you Pete Prisco’s pick for the most overrated Chicago Bears player, Alshon Jeffery. Prisco, of CBSSports, gives his overrated/underrated picks for all 32 teams in the NFL every offseason and as you can probably deduce by now, he tabbed Eddie Goldman as the Bears’ most underrated player. I’m expecting big things from Goldman this year -- he was my Number 3 Most Important Bear of 2016 -- so he wouldn’t have been my pick for underrated, but from a national perspective I can see where Prisco is coming from. If we’re really talking about who the national...

Chicago Bears Training Camp Preview: How many wide outs will they carry?

Last year the Chicago Bears opened the season with six wide receivers on the 53 man roster and one on the Physically Unable to Perform list. That same scenario could play out again this year with the recently injured Marquess Wilson a candidate for the PUP list. The Bears, like many teams, use a three wide out set quite often. Of the 204 different lineups the Bears used on offense last season, their top one (58 plays) featured WRs Marquess Wilson, Alshon Jeffery and Marc Mariani. Their second most used line up (39 plays) was also a 3 WR set featuring Wilson, Jeffery and Eddie Royal. Their...

Alshon Jeffery is the most overrated Bears player

CBSSports’ Pete Prisco came out with his annual “Most Overrated Player in the NFL” list because it’s July and the season of lists. Prisco lays out the central theme of his argument as “games not names.” He says he wants to see players who are consistent at making plays and not getting by on their reputation and name. So with that in mind, Prisco set out to name the most overrated player on every team. For the Bears that is Alshon Jeffery. Here’s what Prisco wrote: When he's on the field, he's a good player -- not a top-five receiver. But availability has been a problem. He's...

Bears and WR Alshon Jeffery Fail to Reach a Deal

The Bears failed to come to terms on a long-term deal with No.1 wide receiver Alshon Jeffery before Friday’s deadline according to Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune. To be frank, no deal was expected. Jeffery wanted Dez Bryant-type money and the Bears organization was simply unwilling to commit that kind of jack with Jeffery […]

Alshon Jeffery does not sign a long term deal with the Chicago Bears

The franchise tag deadline has passed and no deal has been reached between the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery meaning that Jeffery will play the 2016 season for a guaranteed $14,599,000. That's not too shabby, but it's not the long term deal that either side was looking for. Jeffery was reported to be looking for something along the lines of the highest paid wide outs in the game today, so think Julio Jones, Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas type of money ($70 million and over $40 million guaranteed). While the Bears were most likely offering something along the lines...
