One of the biggest signings of the new NFL league year on March 9 was the Philadelphia Eagles giving former Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery a one-year, $14 million deal. The signing was a big one for the Eagles because they lacked a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver on their roster. Philadelphia did sign former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith, and he will help the vertical passing offense, but they still needed that go-to guy. And that is exactly what they get with Jeffery. He will take the Eagles offense to another level Allen Iverson Youth Jersey and help the progression of 2016 No. 2 overall pick, quarterback Carson Wentz. The former North Dakota State quarterback did well in his rookie season, but the lack of a legitimate No. 1 target hindered his ability. The addition of Jeffery will give Wentz a receiver he can trust and someone that will open up the field for the other receivers. The Jeffery signing will be talked about a lot heading into the 2017 season and Jeffery added to the excitement right when he arrived in the City of Brotherly Love. CSN’s John Clark asked Jeffery, fresh off of his plane ride to Philly, why he chose Philadelphia. Jeffery said: I think it was the best decision for me and my family. Also it’s a great situation. PHILADELPHIA -- New Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was sold on Carson Wentz after seeing him live back in September. During that Week 2 game at Soldier Field between the Eagles and Chicago Bears, Wentz went 21-of-34 for 190 yards and a touchdown, leading three second-half scoring drives en route to an unexpected 29-14 Eagles win. Alshon Jeffery is already making noise for the Philadelphia Eagles, saying that Carson Wentz will be a future MVP. "I was playing for the Bears, I was hopeful we'd win," Jeffery said at his introductory press conference Friday. "But I think in that last drive as he was really getting things going, I'm like, 'Yeah, wow, this kid is going to be special.'" Jeffery said Wentz influenced his decision to sign in Philadelphia. Jeffery inked a one-year, $14 million deal that has $8.75 million in guarantees http://www.officialpistonstore.com/Allen_Iverson_Jersey. The bulk of the rest will have to be earned through incentives. It's a "prove-it" contract of sorts, and he's betting that he'll create greater value in 2017 -- both for himself and his new quarterback. "Like I told him when me and him texted back and forth, I told him that my job is to help him win the MVP, which I truly believe," Jeffery said of Wentz. "Sky is the limit for him. He's a great quarterback." "He said, 'I don't really care about MVP, I want to win championships.' I was like, 'That's right. That's the right mindset, the right attitude.' That means a lot for a young player to say that." Jeffery has Andre Drummond Authentic Jersey 304 career receptions over five seasons for 4,549 yards with 26 touchdowns. He has only six touchdowns over his past two seasons, however. He dealt with multiple injuries and missed seven games in 2015, and this past season he missed four games after violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. "I'm going to have the right team in place, like everyone around me, we're all on the same page," he said when asked about the suspension. "I'm pretty sure that's never going to happen again." The 27-year-old receiver was asked if it is his intention to stay in Philadelphia long term. "I'm just focusing on this season. Whatever happens after the season," he said, "we'll handle it." Executive vice president of http://www.officialpistonstore.com/Andre_Drummond_Jersey football operations Howie Roseman called the deal with Jeffery a "win-win". From the team's perspective, it gives them options and exclusive negotiating rights before free agency next year. If all goes well, it seems likely that the Eagles will make a push to sign Jeffery to an extension.
