The Bears announced on Tuesday that wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has signed his franchise tag tender.

The move is an encouraging sign as the receiver does not appear to be disgruntled about receiving the tag, and it means he’ll likely be at offseason minicamp unless he has a last-minute change of heart. If he skips camp he will get fined, so his intentions clearly are to be a cooperative team player.

The Bears will continue to negotiate with Jeffery and his agent on a long-term deal, and the two sides have until July 15 to work one out.
