Alshon Jeffery to sign with Eagles

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Philadelphia Eagles and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery agreed to terms on a one-year, $14 million deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles pursued Jeffery around last year's trade deadline to no avail. However, they landed him Thursday on a one-year deal. Phialdephia had a need at wide receiver and they brought in the best availible in this year's free agent class. He is in the middling WR1 conversation for the 2017 fantasy football season.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears still in discussions

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery are continuing to "discuss a potential deal as he weighs offers from other teams. "

Fantasy Impact

With the free agent signing period set to open at 4 pm Thursday, the possibility of Jeffery re-signing with the Bears is not out of the question. Per reports, Jeffery is weighing out offers from other teams before he ultimately makes his decision on where he will play moving forward. He is expected to receive a deal that pays him north of $15 million per year on the open market. With DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Kenny Britt already agreeing to deals with new clubs, Jeffery will be in even higher demand with the free agent wide receiver class quickly depleting.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears 'open to a reunion'

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Chicago Bears and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery's agent had a "positive meeting" on Saturday, later adding that "both sides are more than open to a reunion."

Fantasy Impact

Although the Bears did not place the franchise tag on Jeffery for the second straight year, it appears that retaining the wideout is not out of the question. As Rapoport reported, Jeffery's agent and the Bears had a "positive meeting" on Saturday, which is good news if they actually intend to re-sign him with the free agency signing period set to begin on March 9. If the two sides are unable to come together on a long-term deal, Jeffery is expected to be heavily pursued by the Eagles, Titans and 49ers. He would make an immediate impact as a WR1 on any one of the aforementioned clubs.

Alshon Jeffery expected to be pursued 'hard' by 49ers

Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com reports the San Francisco 49ers are expected to "go hard after" Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery in free agency.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery was not franchise tagged by the Bears and is fully on track to hit the open market. He is expected to be heavily pursued by a number of wide receiver-needy teams that include the Rams, Eagles and 49ers once the signing period begins on March 9. Regarded as the top wideout in this year's free agent class, Jeffery is in line for a big payday.

Alshon Jeffery on track to test open market

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chicago Bears are "not expected" to franchise tag wide receiver Alshon Jeffery this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Jeffery, who was tagged by the Bears last offseason, is unlikely to receive the tender for the second straight year at its current value of around $17 million. The 27-year-old wideout is on track to test the open market as a result. As the top free agent receiver available this offseason, expect Jeffery to play with a new team in 2017. Expect the Eagles, who are in dire need at the receiver position, to make a run at Jeffery if they could maneuver their salary cap enough to make it work. Currently, they only have $9,842,349 million of cap space available according to overthecap.com.
