Howie Roseman delivers Christmas in March to Carson Wentz, Eagles fans

Howie Roseman delivers Christmas in March to Carson Wentz, Eagles fans

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, the former SC wide receiver is signing a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Together, the two wide receivers give Wentz a speed component (Smith) and a big receiver who can outleap defenders for the ball (Jeffery), something the Eagles sorely lacked last season.

The Philadelphia Eagles introduced newly acquired wide receiver Alshon Jeffery during a press conference on Friday afternoon. They obviously have a very good wide receiver in T.Y. Hilton, but pairing him with someone like Jeffery - who's also a very good receiver and who has good size - would make the offense even more risky and give Andrew Luck more weapons to work with. He was healthy in 2013, playing in 16 games and catching 89 balls for 1,421 yards on 148 targets, with seven touchdowns, earning him Pro Bowl honors.

With Jeffery's departure, the Bears will now look to in-house weapons like Kevin White, and will likely explore the free agent market for other receivers as National Football League free agency begins.

When asked why he chose the Eagles, Jeffery explained that it was the best decision for him and his family. He instantly became part of one of the best wide receiver tandems in the league alongside Brandon Marshall.

When the Bears failed to place the franchise tag upon him last month, it appeared the writing was on the wall.

Of course, back on September 19 in Chicago, Jeffery didn't know he'd join the Eagles this week. He started only 21 games the last two seasons as injuries hampered him and a four-game suspension due to PED's kept him out a month this past year.

Over five seasons, Jeffery's totaled 304 receptions for 4,549 yards and 26 touchdowns, eclipsing more than 1,100 yards during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. "But from our perspective, it was a win-win situation, and when you have guys on one-year deals, you still have options".

"I thought he did a good job taking care of his body this year", Pace told the Chicago Tribune.

Alshon Jeffery said he was enticed to sign with the Eagles as a free agent by the potential of quarterback Carson Wentz. He has only six touchdowns over his past two seasons, however. "Just being more careful", Jeffery said.

The departure of Marshall to the New York Jets made Jeffery the Bears' leading receiver.
