Default Alshon will be pumping gas soon...

...into the car of his choice. The guy's contract is up in 2014 and he will be a free agent in 2015. The Bears have signed Marshall at 10 million a year and Alshon will get more. The Gamecocks are doing OK in the NFL...

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...or-a-big-deal/

So if Marshall is worth $10 million per year, what will Jeffery get? Hes eligible for a new contract after the 2014 regular season, and hell be a free agent after 2015. The Bears will need to pay Jeffery as much or more than Marshall, sooner rather than later.

I don't think he will get more than Marshall.
And they probably won't trade him.

I don't think they will get rid of Marshall as long as Cutler is there. I still say they should have fired Cutler and kept Smith. We all knew Alshon had greatness in him the first time we saw him play in a game at the WB. Now the NFL knows it too.

Default Re: Alshon will be pumping gas soon...

The Bears just signed Marshall to a 3 year $30M extension through 2018. Marshall probably could have gotten more on the free market, but this move give them cap room to sign Alshon. I don't think they trade him as they know all they have to do is get better OL and run defense play and that team can really take off. I think Jeffery gets around the same deal as Marshall from the Bears.

Default Re: Alshon will be pumping gas soon...

Here is a list of highly ranked WR's (6.0 or better on Rivals) who chose to go to Southern Cal in the past 8 years and who are now pumping gas (or will be soon.)

Markeith Ambles (transferred to Houston, not even a starter, will work at Texaco)
Kyle Prater (transferred to Northwestern, had a total of 9 receptions last year.)
George Farmer (didn't even play last year.)
Ronald Johnson (signed with 49'ers but was cut, looking for a job.)
Patrick Turner (got on a couple teams Practice Squads, but hasn't done that since '12.)

Default Re: Alshon will be pumping gas soon...

IMO, the Bears would be better off with Alshon than Brandon Marshall. We all know what Jeffery is capable of. Marshall enters Free Agency next year. Alshon is probably looking at a second-tier WR contract (Calvin and Fitzgerald are the first tier at $16m/year.) Somewhere in the neighborhood of Dwayne Bowe's contract of 5 years $11.2 million a year. Here's a list of WR contracts:

Marshall just signed an extension.

Also looking at that, some of those receivers make too much and some too Little. (Victor Cruz being paid less than Dwayne Bowe etc)

Just from the feel of things around the city, it's hard to imagine them letting Alshon get away. I also think he's pretty happy here right now.

Not only that but in 2 years he has set records for their team. If they let Alshon get away, then Chicago may as well hang it up as a football franchise.

If they were smart, they would ditch Cutler's ass and find a real QB. Guess who is just across thew way? A guy named Connor Shaw.

Culter's fine. I'd rather have him on the Bears than pretty much any rookie. As for Shaw being "across the way" .... Cleveland's about the same distance to Chicago as Richmond, VA is to Columbia, SC.
