Alshon Jeffery is in Tampa

I had a chance to catch up with Alshon Jeffery’s Trainer and members of his representation last week, and highlighted the details in this article.
Since, a rumor has come out that Alshon Jeffery is training at St. Vincent’s in Indy. The same rumor said he is tipping the scales at close to 250 pounds and running a reported 4.88 40-time.
I’m not surprised that a rumor like this would come out. The internet has not been Jeffery’s best friend during this draft process. Try typing in “Alshon Jeffery” in your google toolbar and see what the first thing that pops up is. “Alshon Jeffery fat”. I personally believe whatever value loss that may stem from this public perception will be one team’s major gain.
I just texted Alshon’s trainer. Not in Indy, at the Athlete’s Compound in Tampa, FL. The same place Alshon Jeffery is. He’s been there since January 8th, and he will remain there until late next week when he leaves for the NFL Scouting Combine.
