The Chicago Bears are unlikely to use their franchise tag upon Alshon Jeffery this season.

Jeffery is likely to sign with another team at the start of free agency.

Despite playing under the $14.599 million franchise tag in 2016, Jeffery caught only 52 balls for 821 yards and 2 touchdowns in 12 appearances.

From 2013-14, Jeffery combined for 174 receptions, 2,554 yards and 17 touchdowns.
