Bears GM Ryan Pace told reporters on Wednesday that he doesn’t think playing out the year under the franchise tag will have much of an impact on WR Alshon Jeffery.
“Honestly, I feel really good about where he’s at right now and kind of where we’re at,” Pace said, via ESPN.com. “I don’t think it’s going to affect him at all.
“He’s at a good spot right now,” Pace added. “And you know, those negotiations were friendly the whole time. And I don’t think it’s uncommon when you’re negotiating off the franchise tag to sometimes not come to an agreement. But that doesn’t mean there’s any ill will. So now we understand; we can revisit it after the season. But I’m optimistic. He’s a talented player. He knows he has to stay healthy. And we’ll see going forward.”
