(Before It's News)

The Bears have agreed to terms on a contract with wide receiver Markus Wheaton, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The former third-round pick of the Steelers is en route to Chicago to sign a contract and provides depth after Alshon Jeffery turned down an offer from the Bears to sign a one-year contract with the Eagles reported to be worth $14 million.

Wheaton, 26, appeared in only three games last season as a lingering shoulder injury eventually forced him to injured reserve. He had the best year of his career in 2015 when he played in all 16 games and had 44 receptions for 749 yards and five touchdowns.

“I’m absolutely excited,” said Wheaton, who indicated he learned of the Bears’ interest from his agent Thursday morning.
