Alshon Jeffery Profile
The Chicago Bears have quickly hammered out a four-year deal with second-round rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, the first draft pick in the NFL to agree to terms.
He's the fastest draft pick to agree to a deal since former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Williams on April 28, 1993.
A 6-foot-3, 216-pounder from South Carolina that the Bears acquired by trading their fifth-round draft pick to the St. Louis Rams to move up five spots, Jeffery caught 183 career passes for 3,042 yards and 23 touchdowns.
Two seasons ago, he caught 88 passes for 1,517 yards and nine touchdowns.
Last season, he caught 49 passes for 762 yards and eight touchdowns.
