LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have agreed to a 4-year contract with second-round draft pick Alshon Jeffery.
A receiver from South Carolina, the 6-foot-3, 212-pound Jeffery had 3,042 yards for his career, making him 1 of only three Southeast Conference receivers to go over 3,000 yards. He had 1,517 receiving yards as a sophomore in 2010, but just 762 last year.
Jeffery gives Chicago another big receiver to go with the 6-foot-4 Brandon Marshall. The Bears announced the agreement on Wednesday.
