The Chicago Bears, as usual, moved quickly in signing the team's second-round pick, South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, to a four-year contract.

The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with WR Alshon Jeffery on a four-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Bears selected Jeffery with the 45th overall pick in the 2nd round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of South Carolina. Jeffery started 33 of 40 games in three seasons (2009-11) at wide receiver for the Gamecocks, setting a school record with 3,042 receiving yards on 183 receptions (16.6 ypc) with 23 touchdowns.

The 6-3, 216-pound receiver tied Sidney Rice for South Carolina’s career touchdown reception record and his 183 catches are topped only by Kenny McKinley’s 207. Jeffery also gathered a school-record 12 100-yard receiving performances during his collegiate career.

In 2010 Jeffery established school single-season records with 88 receptions for 1,517 yards. His 763 yards receiving in 2009 and 762 in 2011 rank tenth and eleventh, respectively, on the season-record chart.
