WR Maclin Says He’ll Take A One-Year Deal With Eagles

Jeremy Maclin

The NFL is a tough, bottom-line business.

It therefore comes as no shock that Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, despite being possibly the most talented member of the team’s wide receiver corps, realizes that he may have to settle for a a one-year deal this offseason according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“I’m a realist, so I understand that that’s a possibility,” Maclin said. The impending free agent missed the entire first season of Chip Kelly’s regime after tearing his ACL in training camp.

This is the second ACL tear of Maclin’s football career.

He is currently running and will soon ramp up his rehab and begin running side-to-side. Maclin has previously stated that he anticipates being ready for the start of spring practices in April.

The Eagles seem interested in re-signing both Maclin and Riley Cooper. Maclin has caught more passes (258) in his first four years with the Eagles than any other receiver in franchise history.
