Alshon Jeffery plays wide receiver (WR) for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. He was a very talented player coming out of college, and did not take long to become one of the most freakish players at his position as a pro. Standing at 6'3" 220 pounds, and having long limbs and large hands, he is considered a prototypical 'large receiver' who can jump up and catch the football over smaller defenders. A few years into his career he was busted for performance enhancing drugs and suspended, read on for the full story.
Alshon was born and raised in South Carolina and went to school at Calhoun County High School. He played for one of the best basketball programs in the state, which only lost 1 time in all 4 years he was there, and he also played 2 years of football. He decided to follow both his brother's footsteps and play college football for his home state school.
As just a freshman, Alshon put up the 2nd best receiving game in South Carolina's history, racking up 138 yards and 3 touchdowns in just 1 game. He made the Freshman All-American team.
His 2nd year in college was even better. He had a whopping 88 catches for 1500 yards with 9 touchdowns, averaging over 100 yards per game. By now considered one of the top receivers in college football, he was a Biletnikoff Award finalist and All-American.
His final year of college he was ranked as the #1 player in the entire conference by analysts. He had another dominant year, which included a 24 game streak of catches and he won MVP at the Capital One Bowl. However, the performance was overshadowed by him being ejected for fighting and left some people wondering if he was mature enough to play in the pros.
Alshon performed at the NFL Combine and South Carolina Pro day. He ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash, he also had a 36.5" vertical jump to go with a 10ft 2" broad jump.
At the 2012 NFL Draft, he was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 2nd round #45 overall pick. Maturity issues were thought to have led to his drop out of the 1st round. His rookie season he got into a fight during the preseason and was warned by coaches to play smarter. He showed some glimpses of talent his rookie year catching 24 balls for 367 yards with 3 touchdowns from Jay Cutler.
Alshon had a breakout 2nd season getting named to the pro bowl and was named the most improved player of the year. He broke the Bears record for yards with 218 in 1 game. Overall he caught 89 balls for 1421 yards and 7 touchdowns.
His 3rd year was also solid with over 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Disaster struck his 4th season when he was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Up to that point, he was having another dominant year and had already had over 800 yards catching, on pace for potentially breaking all-time Bears records:
Before his 5th season, the Bears placed the franchise tag on Alshon to prevent him from leaving the team in free agency. He did not have a particularly good season only catching 2 touchdowns and it was announced after 12 games that he would be suspended for the last 4 games. More on this later in the article.
Alshon was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles under a 1 year 'prove it' deal for $14M. This would wind up being a very smart decision for both parties because, with his help, the Eagles would go all the way to the Super Bowl and win. Alshon started all 16 games and had 57 catches with 9 touchdowns. In the playoffs, he was very important, hauling in 12 catches for 219 yards and 3 touchdowns.
This included 1 touchdown in the Super Bowl. He did all this with a major shoulder injury, playing games in pain.
The Eagles rewarded him with an extension worth up to $52M.
Alshon courageously played most of the prior year with a torn rotator cuff, including the Super Bowl, so he had to wait until February to finally have surgery on his shoulder. As of this article, he is still not healthy and the Eagles passing offense sputtered without him as of Week 1. He is expected to miss at least 1 more game at minimum, although he is practicing with the team.
During his nightmare 2016 season, Alshon was suspended the last 4 games for using performance-enhancing drugs. The NFL did not reveal exactly what he took, but he claims that he took a supplement for inflammation which contained a banned substance. He also apologized to the organization, teammates, and fans and promised to earn back everyone's respect.
The facts were that Alshon was going into a life-changing season where he was set to become a free agent and command one of the biggest contracts for a receiver. A great 5th season and he would have commanded $14M a year with a lot of guaranteed money, a poor season and he would have gotten far less. Also, he was having some nagging injuries so he likely wanted to take something to help give him an edge. We can speculate he probably used this stack:
