Analysis: Jeffery was considered the top receiver available in free agency, but he couldn't secure a long-term deal to remain in Chicago after getting the franchise tag last year. The 27-year-old Jeffery is coming off two down seasons in which he missed 11 games due to injury and suspension. His last standout season came in 2014, when he had 85 catches for 1,133 yards receiving and 10 TDs.

Analysis: In 2016, Jeffery finished with 52 passes catches for 821 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games as he dealt with a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He missed 11 games the past two seasons. Jeffery, 27, earned $14.599 million under the tag last season. If the Bears utilized the tag on Jeffery again, it would cost them $17.5 million.
