Alshon Jeffery Agrees To Deal With Philadelphia Eagles

Jeffery was coming off of a rookie season in which he had modest production - 26 catches for 367 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.

Roseman signed Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith and they immediately become this team's starting wideouts when the regular season opens. Today he made his decision loud and clear: Jeffery will be a member of the Eagles after signing a one-year deal. In 2013-14 he posted back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and 17 total touchdowns.

Jeffery was considered the top receiver available in free agency, but he couldn't secure a long-term deal to remain in Chicago or from another team.

I don't know what other clubs were pursuing him, or if Philadelphia was one of the few to offer a one-year contract, which I assume is what he was after, but I'm excited to have a No. 1 receiver on board - finally!

It nearly means Nelson Agholor probably isn't in the long-term plan- okay I can't even type that with a straight face.

The last time the Birds acquired a wide receiver of Jeffery's magnitude was in 2004, when they traded for Terrell Owens.




Of course, back on September 19 in Chicago, Jeffery didn't know he'd join the Eagles this week.

Since Jeffery is only receiving a one-year deal, it can be argued that this is a medium-risk deal at worst. 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.

Royal is likely going to be cut with no guaranteed money left on his deal and injuries doing him in over his two seasons in town.

"Obviously, this was a hard decision for us but we wish him and his family all the best". The infraction led to a four-game suspension that derailed Jeffery's fifth season in the league and ultimately expedited his departure from Chicago, where he had developed into a bona fide star.

The additions of both Jeffery and Smith moves were crucial in giving second-year quarterback Carson Wentz more options at wide receiver. He had just 53 catches for 930 yards combined in the two seasons. I'm only 28. I just turned 28 in January.

When Jeffery entered the league, he had veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall to serve as a mentor.
