Alshon Jeffery Rumors: Eagles listed as suitor for free agent wide receiver

He didn't miss any action with an injury but drew a four-game suspension for violating the National Football League policy on performance enhancing substances.

Cutler is ahead of schedule in a rehab process that began with surgery in December, Pace said.

Pace added that the Bears are "constantly having dialogue" with Jeffery's agent and anticipates "that'll continue like it has pretty much always". "It is fluid. It's fluid throughout this week, as we approach free agency and even after free agency". We're getting daily reports on his progress.

"We'll know a lot more in the coming week". "I'm trying to work with you all, but I hope you appreciate that".

"It's our responsibility to have a plan in place, which we do, that's flexible and adaptable as the landscape's changing", Pace said. I also want to see what other free agents may be attracted to the same teams I'll be looking at.

The Chicago Bears have been the laughingstock of the NFC North for the past six years. The 45th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft is projected at a value of $12.2 million a year by Sportrac with a possible asking price of $60 million for a five-year contract.
