Alshon Jeffery is about to enter his sixth NFL season and it's a change in scenery as he is in his first season with the Philadelphia Eagles after spending his first five seasons with the Bears.
Jeffery says he's excited about joining the Eagles who were looking to add some playmakers to the offense, but Jeffery says that unit on the other side of the ball will be exciting to watch.
"It's all about the process, but I think we made some great pickups," Jeffery said.
"Even with me, Torrey (Smith) LeGarrette (Blount) and our defense, I just can't wait to see. Everyone's been like family. Everyone loves each other. We joke around and just compete with each other."
While Jeffery is in a positive frame of mind when it comes to his NFL career, he wants to spread those good feelings around and he will do just that Saturday when he hosts the 1st Annual Free Youth Football Camp and Community Fun Day. The camp is his way of giving back to the St. Matthews community who watched him win state championships in basketball and go on to a stellar career at USC and now in the NFL.
"Calhoun County means a lot to me," Jeffery said.
