Jeremy Maclin and the Philadelphia Eagles have both expressed interest in getting a deal done that would keep Maclin in midnight green.
Maclin, who was participating in the Jefferson's Heart Health Day in the King of Prussia Mall on Saturday, spoke to a couple reporters and said, "I've always said I want to be here in Philadelphia, but I've also said it's a business. Both sides have made it known that we want each other back, so the rest is in God's hands."
It would be in the Eagles best interest to get a deal done with the Pro-Bowl receiver before he is able to sign with another team on March 10th. Maclin is coming off his best season as a pro, catching 85 passes for 1,318 yards and ten touchdowns in his first season in Chip Kelly's system. If the Eagles wait until he becomes a free agent they are running the risk of having to overpay to keep a player that wants to stay in Philadelphia.
After missing the 2013 season with a torn ACL, Maclin was in position to become an unrestricted free agent. The Eagles offered him a multi-year deal, which Maclin declined, opting for a one year deal instead. He signed that contract one year ago Saturday.Read more... Join the Conversation...
