Eagles Will Favor Jeremy Maclin Over Riley Cooper

The Philadelphia Ealgles have two wide receivers that could end up testing the market in 2014. Jeremy Maclin, who missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL he suffered in training camp, and Riley Cooper, who played the entire season but did not come along until later in the year after creating big problems in the preseason with a racial slur.

When Maclin is healthy, he is effective. The 26-year-old Maclin has registered 258 receptions for 3,458 yards and 26 touchdowns in four seasons with the Eagles.

Cooper on the other hand, has come along much slower. Cooper has 93 receptions for 1,514 yards and 13 touchdowns in his four seasons in Philadelphia. Cooper’s most productive season coming in 2013 when recording 47 catches and eight touchdowns.

The Eagles are more focused on keeping Maclin over Cooper — meaning the team will most likely be parting ways with him in free agency.

Many teams seem interested in Maclin already before free agency, like the Jets. However, Maclin has spoken out about how he would like to stay with the Eagles. The team would like to get Maclin under contract for a one-year deal after tearing his ACL and find another receiver in either free agency or the draft, but for Cooper, it looks like his days with the Eagles are over.
