During his senior season at South Carolina, questions surfaced about wide receiverAlshon Jeffery’s conditioning. But Jeffery is taking steps to make sure there are no such questions during his rookie year with the Bears.
Jeffery, the Bears’ second-round draft pick, has decided not to attend the 2012 NFL Rookie Premiere, an event in Los Angeles celebrating some of the league’s top rookie, so that he won’t miss any time in the Bears’ offseason program, ESPN Chicago reports.
“I was very impressed with him mentally,” McCown said. “Great hands, too.”
And if he’s in great shape, Jeffery will be a great deal for the Bears in the second round.
