Chicago Bears Unlikely To Franchise Tag Alshon Jeffery Again


Alshon Jeffery is likely to hit the free agent market after all. After weeks of speculation regarding the future of the Chicago Bears All-Pro wide receiver, there appears to be a resolution in sight.

According to a report from NFL Network, Bears are unlikely to use the franchise tag on wide receiver Alshon Jeffery for another season which would make him a free agent. Teams have until Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET to use their franchise designation and free agency officially starts on March 9th.

Jeffery played under the $14.599 million franchise tag in 2016 which he caught 52 passes for 821 yards and 2 touchdowns in 12 games. Jeffery has 13 career 100-yard receiving games over his career.

Jeffery is likely to be a top target for wide receiver needy teams such as the Los Angeles Rams.
