Eagles Sign Alshon Jeffery To One-Year Deal

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Eagles have signed wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to a one-year deal.

The deal is reportedly worth $14 million.

Jeffery reportedly turned down a multi-year deal from the Vikings, with more financial security.

Jeffery caught just 52 balls for 821 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games last season after being suspended for using performance enhancing drugs.

Jeffery, 27, was a 2012 second round pick out of South Carolina. At 6'3″, 216 pounds, Jeffery ran a 4.53 at the 2012 NFL combine with a 10.24 catch radius (89th percentile).
