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.

The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed reports that WR Jeremy Maclin tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Maclin's MRI did not show a tear of his medial collateral ligament.
Huddle Up: While it's good news that Maclin did not suffer damage to the MCL, he's still likely to miss much if not all of the 2013 season while recovering from the ACL tear.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin was carted off the field Saturday, July 27, and he believes he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Terrible news for the Eagles if Maclin is out for the year. DeSean Jackson would become the clear-cut WR1 in Philly, with Jason Avant, Arrelious Benn, Riley Cooper and Greg Salas jockeying for position in Philly's receiver rotation.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said he is expecting to be more involved in the team's offense in 2013. Maclin believed that the previous offense was tailored around WR DeSean Jackson. "There's two ways you can run the West Coast Offense," Maclin said. "You can run it where the flanker position, you can put him in the slot, put him in motion, or you can tailor it around a single receiver who's always by himself. And when Marty was here, we tailored it around the flanker position. That's just how it was."
Huddle Up: Maclin and Jackson both have the speed to excel in Chip Kelly's offense; whether Maclin is merely lobbying for a larger share of the pie or he is actually seeing more opportunities through the Eagles' OTAs remains to be seen. But there is plenty of upside to the Philly offense this year, and Maclin projects to be a big part of it.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin said his contract situation will not be a distraction for him this season as he enters the final year of his current contract and will look for the situation to play itself out. The two sides have had preliminary discussions about a new deal.
Huddle Up: Maclin has been fairly consistent in his 4 pro seasons, ranging from 56-70 receptions and 773-964 yards. Still, as has much discussed this offseason, there's a new sheriff (Chip Kelly) and a new offense (TBD) in Philly, and it'll be interesting to see how Maclin's game is incorporated into the attack.
