Interactive Bears graphic: The economical Alshon Jeffery
In only his second year, Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (1,109 receiving yards) has quickly established himself as one of the league’s best — and also cheapest wide receiving threats when looking at productivity vs. salary.
For example, let’s look at the Bears:
While Jeffery only will pull in 9.8 percent of the salary the Texans’ Andre Johnson will be paid this year ($10,527,918 cap hit), he’s caught the same number of touchdowns (5) and is within a catch or two of overtaking Johnson for the third spot in receiving yards.
