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

Jeffery has Top-10 skill, but Top-500 health. The Bears will bring in a new quarterback, so a lot will depend on who that is, but more will depend on Jeffery staying healthy

Jeffery is never able to play a full 16 games and he may be in another city. His value is going to be volatile this off-season, depending on what the Bears do at quarterback and whether he'll even be back in Chicago in 2017.
