Jeremy Maclin | WR | Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) has been working without restrictions since the team began practicing this spring. Maclin is recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee that he suffered last July, and he has not experienced any setbacks since he began practicing. 'I've done everything since April 21st, when we were able to get out here as a team,' Maclin said. 'I've been getting better each and every day, and I'm really happy with my progress.'
Huddle Up: Maclin slides into the top role of a receiver rotation that also includes Riley Cooper and rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff. If healthy, he should account for most--if not all--of the numbers vacated by DeSean Jackson's departure.

The Philadelphia Eagles fully expect Jeremy Maclin (knee) to be ready to go for the start of the 2014 season, according to general manager Howie Roseman. 'I think it depends on the player. We saw Adrian Peterson come back after six months, and did he win the MVP award after that? So I think it depends on the genetics. And all I know is what our doctors are telling us, and he;s doing a great job in his rehab. We fully expect him to be ready to go once the season starts.'
Huddle Up: If healthy, Maclin is in a prime spot to bounce back strong with DeSean Jackson and his 2013 team-leading 126 targets and 82 receptions having departed for D.C. this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) fell to the ground holding his left knee during OTA events on Monday, June 2. While Maclin tore the ACL in his right knee last year, causing him to miss the entire season, this incident left him clutching his left knee. Maclin quickly got to his feet, and later noted that he felt fine.
Huddle Up: Philly fans and Maclin's keeper-league owners are breathing normally again, with the WR figuring heavily in the team's post-DeSean Jackson plans after missing all of the 2013 campaign.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said he expects the offense to be fine even though they lost Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson this offseason. '[Head coach Chip Kelly] said it himself: The offense is not built around one guy,' Maclin said. 'We have multiple guys that go out there and make plays.'
Huddle Up: With the return of Maclin and the addition of RB Darren Sproles, the wideout does have a point -- and we're not even to the draft yet.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said WR Jeremy Maclin is on schedule in terms of his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that shelved him for the 2013 season. Kelly said he is not sure if Maclin will be able to participate in offseason workouts but should be 100 percent by training camp.
Huddle Up: Maclin averaged 67 catches, 893 yards and 7 TDs in his last 3 full seasons and could be in line for even more work if Philly winds up trading DeSean Jackson as has been rumored.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $6 million with $3.5 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: It's a show-me deal for Maclin, who blew out his knee heading into 2013 and was unable to put up a marketable campaign. Maclin joins DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper to give Nick Foles a formidable receiving corps.

Updating an earlier report, the Philadelphia Eagles are negotiating with WR Jeremy Maclin but are not close to a deal.
Huddle Up: With Philly's flurry of recent moves, including the shiny new 5-year, $25 million deal for fellow wideout Riley Cooper, it increases the likelihood that Maclin might be left as the odd man out.

The Philadelphia Eagles have decided re-signing impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin will be a bigger priority than re-signing impending free-agent WR Riley Cooper. The team will look to sign Maclin to a one-year deal and attempt to sign another starting-caliber wide receiver in free agency. The team could be interested in bringing Cooper back if they are not able to find another option.
Huddle Up: There's room for three receivers in Chip Kelly's offense, though with Maclin back in the mix Cooper's numbers--and the amount Philly would be willing to pay him--would dip more than a little. It will be interesting to see how the Philly receiver situation shakes out, as there are plenty of fantasy ramifications.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said he likely will not be ready when he signs with a team next month but should be ready for training camp. Maclin said he is happy with how his rehab has been going.
Huddle Up: Maclin's inability to work out for teams might lead him back to Philly, as well as keep his price tag down. But don't sleep on his fantasy prospects in 2014 if he's healthy--especially if he's back in Philly.

The New York Jets are interested in free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers). Some people in the organization aren't sold on free-agent WR Eric Decker's (Broncos) ability to be a No. 1 receiver.
Huddle Up: Geno Smith needs some targets, and either Maclin or Sanders would step to the fore of the Jets' receiver rotation.

The Philadelphia Eagles have exclusive rights to re-sign WRs Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper before March 11. The 2014 NFL Draft has a group of underclassmen who could make this upcoming draft the deepest at the receiver position in years, and that could affect how the club approaches re-signing Cooper and Maclin. However, a pool of coaches, executives, scouts and agents suggested the team is likely to retain both players unless they opt to test the market.
Huddle Up: It's definitely bad timing for Maclin coming off a knee injury, and it'll be interesting to see if he's willing to test the market coming off a full season on IR.

The Kansas City Chiefs could pursue impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) (knee) during the offseason, especially if he accepts a 1-year deal. Maclin is familiar with head coach Andy Reid, who drafted him when he was head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Of all the FA rumors floating around, this is as logical a fit as any with K.C. needing playmakers to complement RB Jamaal Charles.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said he would be willing to accept a one-year deal from a team this offseason because he knows some teams may be worried about the torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered. 'For a team that wants to give me a one-year deal, that's cool, I'll just go out there and ball out, do the things I think I can do. Hopefully get that type of deal I'm looking for. If a team wants to give me a long-term deal, I'll go out there and still do the same thing,' Maclin said. Maclin said his representatives have had talks with the Eagles but is not sure if he will return.
Huddle Up: Maclin, who averaged 64.5 catches and 6.5 TD catches over his first 4 years in Philly but has yet to record a 1,000-yard receiving season, will be an interesting FA to watch. Riley Cooper's emergence makes it somewhat less likely he'll return to Philly, but definitely don't rule it out, either.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman did not rule out the possibility of re-signing impending free-agent WRs Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin this offseason.
Huddle Up: Maclin's price may be reduced somewhat as he's coming off a major knee injury, but Cooper's strong season drives his price tag up. And with DeSean Jackson making noise about a new deal, that's a whole lot of money for the receiver position. The more likely outcome is Philly bringing back one of the two secondary targets to team with Jackson.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said he's ahead of schedule from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, and he expects to be ready for the start of spring practices April 21.
Huddle Up: Maclin was almost forgotten man in Philly in missing the season, and his return will only boost the already-soaring 2014 fantasy stock of QB Nick Foles.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (knee) said his rehab from a knee injury is going really well Monday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: This is great news for dynasty owners, but Maclin won't help anyone this season.
