John Fox: New conditioning program will aid Alshon Jeffery
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(3/25/15) Bears coach John Fox is changing the team's offseason conditioning program, and he thinks the tweaks will help wideout Alshon Jeffery, reports ESPN.com. Jeffery is the Bears' No. 1 receiver now that Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Jets.
The 25-year-old dealt with nagging hamstring problems last year.
“I really liked Alshon coming out [of college],” Fox said at the NFL owners' meetings. “One of the things I’d say is we had a lot of soft-tissue injuries last year as a football team. We’ve kind of changed philosophically in the weight room. I think you’ll see we’re going to do things a lot different from offseason conditioning, the approach to how we handle that. I don’t think we had a soft-tissue injury a year ago in Denver other than one particular guy.”
Jeffery caught 85 passes for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, his second straight 1,000-yard season.
“I think [the new conditioning approach] will help him,” Fox said. “There have been times in his career when he might have been a little bit overweight, but obviously a beast as far as size, and a guy we’re looking forward to getting to know better.”
Bears GM on Forte, Jeffery extensions: 'It's a slow process'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Bears general manager Ryan Pace appeared noncommittal when asked to discuss potential contract extensions for players like Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery during his combine press conference, according to ESPN. Pace, however, did admit that "it's a slow process."
"I just want to take it on a case by case basis. It's a slow process," Pace said. "I know you guys are going to ask questions from a million different angles but again it's just my job and John's [Fox] job and our staff's job to just be thorough and slow with this process. I know there is a time frame but I don't want to rush any decisions."
Forte, 29, is entering the final year of the four-year contract extension he signed in 2012. He is due to collect a $6.650 million base salary, along with a $1.050 million roster bonus, and $100,000 workout bonus. Jeffery, 25, is also entering the final year of a four-year, $4.54 million contract. He is due to make $960,157, and a $50,000 workout bonus in 2015.
Bears TE Bennett does heavy lifting; WR Jeffery held in check
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett did most of the heavy lifting in the aerial attack, while wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was held in check in Sunday's season finale against Minnesota.
Bennett led the way with eight catches for 59 yards on 11 targets. He finishes the season with 90 catches for 916 yards and six scores. Jeffery caught only two of five passes thrown in his direction for 34 yards in a 13-9 defeat. He turned 145 targets into 85 catches for 1,133 yards and a career-best 10 touchdowns.
Backup quarterback won't ruin Alshon Jeffery
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/22/14) Though the Bears passing game didn't fare so well overall with the switch to Jimmy Clausen at quarterback Week 16 against Detroit, top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made as much of an impact as usual, catching six passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. He's had between 70 and 80 receiving yards in three of his last four games, scoring at least one touchdown in six straight.
His 15 targets were actually the second-most he's had in a game this season, but that's not too surprising since it was his first game without Brandon Marshall on the opposite side of the field. Marshall is out for the season because of rib and lung injuries.
Clausen threw for only 181 yards against the Lions, but it was an especially difficult matchup. And with Jeffery no longer competing with Marshall for looks, he was able to make a major impact regardless.
Don't worry so much about his quarterback. Just keep running Jeffery out there Week 17 at Minnesota.
Production of Bears WR Jeffery cut short in fourth Sunday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) Bears premier receiver Alshon Jeffery did not catch a pass in the fourth quarter Sunday against Detroit. That proved critical in a loss.
Jeffery did snag six of his game-high 14 targets for 72 yards. Among them was a 20-yard score late in the third quarter. That, however, was his last catch.
The Bears play at Minnesota in Week 17.
|There's no more No. 1 and 1A receiver duo in Chicago -- Alshon Jeffery is the top dog for the Bears now. Brandon Marshall's departure to the Jets makes that so. However, it also places the spotlight directly on Jeffery. To give you an idea of what he can do without Marshall, he scored two touchdowns and averaged 15.3 yards per catch in three games without him at the end of last year. Jeffery was one of seven receivers who had 10-plus Fantasy points in 10 games in 2014 and should get a hefty amount of targets now. Expect Jeffery to finish as a top 12 receiver for the second year in a row. You'll be able to find him picked between 17th and 24th overall in every draft this summer.
