Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery hauls in a touchdown against the Cowboys this season. Despite a half-hearted effort by the Bears to re-sign Jeffery, he opted for a one-year, $9.5 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles that can earn him an extra $4.5 million in incentives. “Business is business,” said Jeffery, a Pro Bowl pick after the 2013 season.
Signing former Bears WR Jeffery big catch for Eagles

Sunday’s game between the 3-7 Bears and the 9-1 Eagles in Philadelphia matches quarterbacks who were picked second overall in the previous two drafts. The Eagles’ Carson Wentz is already a bona fide star. The Bears’ Mitch Trubisky has made strides in that direction.
Bears would love if Trubisky followed career arc of Eagles' Wentz

Bulls’ Justin Holiday, left, goes to the basket against Charlotte Hornets’ Nicolas Batum during Nov. 17’s loss. Yes, Holiday seems to shoot a lot but look at it this way, the Bulls took a career role player and tossed him into a situation where he’s expected to be a veteran leader and go-to scorer. Naturally, Holiday is still figuring things out when it comes to shot selection and he may not have it in him to be a consistent 16- to 18-point scorer in the NBA. If the Bulls can add some talent in the next couple years, Holiday could learn from this experience, slide back into a supporting role, and be a valuable piece if the rebuild starts climbing the stairs.
Time to give thanks for the Bulls rebuild? Not quite, but here's a mailbag
Bears inside linebacker Christian Jones brings down Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery during the loss to the Packers. Jones has played inside and outside in his four years with the Bears. He’s having his best season this year playing inside, but because of the season-ending knee injury to outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, Jones could occasionally line up outside.
With Floyd out, look for Jones to get even more involved in Bears defense
