Alshon Jamell Jeffery, born February 14, 1990, plays for the National Football League (NFL) as a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jeffery was first drafted into the NFL in 2012 by the Chicago Bears as a second round pick, after playing college football for the South Carolina Gamecocks. Before his football career began, Jeffery played championship basketball for his hometown high school.
When Jeffery reached the University of South Carolina in 2009, he was ready for his first season as a freshman, and performed well beyond expectations, ending the season as the first-team Freshman All-SEC and first-team Freshman All-American. His season started strong, with five passes totaling 61 yards in just his first five games. Jeffery landed the second-best single-game performance in school history when he made seven catches for a total of 138 yards in addition to three touchdowns against the University of Kentucky.
His second season with South Carolina, in 2010, went just as well, if not better, as Jeffrey made a total of 88 catches for 1,517 yards, nine touchdowns, and played eight games with 100 or more yards his season yard average landing at 108.4 yards per game. Jeffery ended his second college season being named an All-American and landing a spot as a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the top wide receiver in the country.
By his third season in 2011, Jeffery had picked up momentum and built his reputation, and was named best overall player in the SEC by ESPN. He kept his power going throughout the season, and won the title of MVP of the 2012 Capital Bowl. By that time, Jeffrey was in high-demand and became the Chicago Bears’ 45th overall pick in the second round of the 2012 Draft.
Jeffrey became the first player from the 2012 draft class to sign on a deal, on May 2, coming to a 4-year agreement with the Bears. His first NFL season started strong, with just a small issue with unnecessary roughness, but would eventually turn into a string of injuries, which kept him from playing a good part of the season. After breaking his right hand, an injury that did not require surgery, but still left Jeffrey sidelined, he returned to the field only to injure his knee, putting him on the bench again.Jeffrey’s rookie season ended with three touchdowns and a total of 24 catches for 367 yards.
Jeffrey came back with a vengeance in his second season in 2013, resulting in being named Most Improved Player by the Pro Football Writers Association. He came out from the beginning of the season with a bang, recording his first career 100-yard receiving game, and following that by breaking Bears single-game receiving record with 218 yards and making 10 receptions, his career-high, the next week. Later in the season, Jeffery put his cemented his name in Bears history by becoming the first player to record two 200-yard games in one season.
Staying healthy for his third season in 2014, Jeffery managed to record over 1,000 yards for the second time in his career, with a total of 1,133 yards accompanying his 10 touchdowns and 85 receptions. Coming off a solid third season, Jeffery went into the 2015 season, his fourth, with enthusiasm. He continued his dominant performance, his season ending early due to a hamstring injury, but still managing to lead the Bears in receptions for the season, with 54. Besides his receptions, Jeffery recorded four touchdowns and 807 total yards.
Before the beginning of his fifth season, the Bears announced that they were putting the franchise tag on Jeffery. Jeffery’s 2016 season went well, his performance living up to his usual standard, until he was suspended by the NFL for four games, in November, for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. When the 2016 ended, Jeffery wrapped up his five year career with the Bears having recorded a total of 4,549 yards and 304 receptions, placing him in the third highest spot for receiving yards in Bears franchise history.
After ending his Bears career, Jeffery became a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, signing the initial one-year $14 million contract in March 2017. After a successful beginning to his 2017 season, Jeffery and the Eagles agreed on a four-year contract extension for $52 million, $27 million of which is guaranteed.
In all, we estimate Alshon Jeffery net worth in 2018 to be above $20 million.
