Jeremy Maclin Wants To Stay Put

While much of the Eagles’ off-season speculation has centered around the uncertainty of the receiving corps, free agent Jeremy Maclin desires to stay in Philadelphia. Speaking with Zach Berman of, Maclin said, “I’ve always stated, this is where I want to be. The Eagles have stated the same thing. We’ll continue to get on the same page with all that and get something done.”

Berman also took to Twitter, reiterating Maclin’s genuineness: “FWIW, Maclin has remained in Philly area this offseason to work out and has been around team facility. Desire to stay is not lip service.”

Maclin, recovering from the second tear of his right ACL, will not be 100% when free agency opens in March, but his rehab is progressing well and the injury will not deter suitors wanting a 26-year-old playmaker. He expects to be cleared for non-contact activity in the spring and believes there is “no question” he’ll be ready for training camp. Berman explains the free agent’s looming decision by writing, “Maclin must decide between taking a short-term “show-me” deal, or sign a long-term deal that likely won’t be of the same value he would have earned had he been healthy in 2013.”
