BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) If indeed this is his time, his chance to assert himself as a true No. 1 receiver for the Chicago Bears, Alshon Jeffery was in no mood to discuss it.
"I mean I'm not looking forward to anything," he said. "I'm just doing my job whatever it takes for us to win. I mean whether that's me blocking, catching the ball. It doesn't matter. It's not one guy who stands out on our team. It takes 11 guys on the field. So each one of us has our part."
Jeffery has a big one as the Bears try to shake off a miserable five-win season that led to general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman being fired.
