VIDEO: Alshon Jeffery On Playing With Brandon Marshall

Jay Cutler hasn't had top-notch targets to throw to during his time with the Chicago Bears, but his wide receiver corps was upgraded significantly this offseason. Not just with former Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall, but with rookie Alshon Jeffery.

The former Gamecock standout spoke to Amy K. Nelson at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere, and he's excited to play in Chicago.

"It's a blessing from God to be drafted," said Jeffery. "Just getting the call was very exiting, my family was very excited, and I'm just looking forward to being a Chicago Bear."

Jeffery also talked specifically about what it's going to be like to play with Marshall. When asked about what he hopes to learn from his new teammate, he said, "everything about how to become a Pro Bowl receiver and a great player. So that means whatever he tells me to do, whatever I need to do, whatever I need to work on. I'm sure he's going to tell me a lot, and I'm going to listen and soak up everything."
