FF Today's Take:The Bears and Jeffery have until July 15th to work out a long-term deal otherwise Jeffery will make 14.4 million in 2016. Jeffery battled a series of injuries (hamstring, groin) in 2015 limiting him to nine games. He'll be a risky low-end WR1 heading into re-draft leagues this Summer.
