"Yeah, wow", Jeffery remembered on Friday. But it is certainly intriguing to see what Jeffery can do on a one-year deal with Carson Wentz and the rest of that deep Eagles receiver corps.
After all, Ryan Pace has been trying come to a long-term agreement with the Bears' top receiver since the 2015 season. All that matters is that we know Jeffery will no longer be catching passes for the Bears.
As it turns out, Agholor and Jeffery are now teammates in Philadelphia.
Jeffery played for the team's new receivers coach, Mike Groh, when the two were together in Chicago.
Heck, Brian Westbrook didn't even arrive until 2002 and didn't become their top back until the next season, when it finally became clear to Reid and company after Westbrook suffered a season-ending injury in December that McNabb needed more. "They're passionate about their city". Rapoport said that the Eagles are also making a strong push, while the talks continue with the Bears. At just 27 years old, he's still got tread on his tires. Britt wound up signing a four-year deal with the Cleveland Browns instead.
Safety help: The Bears added a veteran safety for the second time in three offseasons, agreeing to terms on a three-year deal with Quintin Demps averaging $4.5 million a year, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

The virus found in Tennessee has been identified as an H7 virus, most likely spread from wild birds in North America. HPAI does not pose a threat to the food supply, and no affected animals entered the food chain, the statement said.
Jeffery will make slightly less than he earned in 2016, when the Bears put the franchise tag on him. Jeffery inked a one-year, $14 million deal that has $8.75 million in guarantees. It's not chump change.
"It was the best decision for me and my family". "He represented the Philadelphia Eagles with class and integrity for the past four seasons and we appreciate his efforts both on and off the field". And who could fault him?
Jeffery certainly seems like a ideal fit for the Eagles on the field.
Listed at 6-3, 220 pounds, Floyd plays a similar big receiver role as Jeffery.
But what did the Eagles get in return? Since earning his first career Pro Bowl honors in 2013 - when he posted 89 receptions for 1,421 yards (16.0 yards per catch average) and seven touchdowns - Jeffery ranks ninth in the National Football League with 4,182 receiving yards.
Matthews saw his production take a slight dip in 2016, finishing the season with 73 catches for 804 yards and three touchdowns. He has only six touchdowns over his past two seasons, however. Jeffery's red zone numbers over his career aren't staggeringly better, but it's not as if he had an elite quarterback in Jay Cutler. He had begun to eclipse his mentor in 2014, but injuries and the suspension prevented him from fully embracing the No. 1-receiver role. When on the field, he's very good, but given how often he has missed games - and the fact that he was suspended previous year for four games for a PED violation that, if caught again, would cost him 10 games - should be something of a concern for the Eagles.
