Jeffery is the top receiver in this year’s free-agent class and, as such, is drawing multiple suitors.
The Colts entered the day with enough cap space to land Jeffery to a healthy contract. It appears they hope to pair him with the league leader in receiving yards T.Y. Hilton and quarterback Andrew Luck.
The Eagles are in desperate need of a dependable receiver for young passer Carson Wentz. Philadelphia has also been linked to trade talks with the New Orleans Saints’ Brandin Cooks and signed free-agent wideout Torrey Smith to a three-year deal on the first day of free agency.
Jeffery recorded 821 yards and two touchdowns with a collection of different Bears quarterbacks throwing him the ball in 2016. He served a four-game suspension late in the year for a performance-enhancing drug violation.
