Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin getting work in as a punt returner


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was the Chiefs' prized free-agent pickup this offseason, which makes it that much more intriguing that he lined up to return punts during practice on Thursday, per ESPN.com.

Maclin, who signed a five-year, $55 million deal with the Chiefs, was a premier punt returner in college and played the role sparingly -- with little success -- with the Eagles.

Coach Andy Reid said the team is preparing Maclin just in case he's needed to return punts or kicks because of injuries.

We just want to make sure he is ready,’’ Reid said. “You have limited numbers that you can dress on game day, so you don’t know what rotation you are going to have there with the receivers and returners. So it gives you an opportunity to keep him fresh. We don’t work him every day like the other guys. It’s kind of an every other day deal, so just to make sure that he’s okay and can still do that, but he’s not going to be the primary guy doing it right now.”


Former Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin: I still believe in Chip Kelly


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Former Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin apparently has no ill-will toward Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly. Although the Eagles could not match the Chiefs' five-year, $55 million contract offer, which Maclin signed in mid-March, Maclin is still a fan of Kelly, who has overhauled the Eagles' roster this offseason.

"I still believe in Chip," Maclin said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think Chip's going to do great things here. I have the utmost respect for him. Unfortunately, we couldn't get something worked out. But at the end of the day I'm very excited about playing for Kansas City and playing for Big Red."

As well as Maclin not being brought back, the Eagles traded LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles. They also released defensive end Trent Cole and offensive lineman Todd Herremans.

Maclin missed the 2013 season -- Kelly's first in the NFL -- due to a torn ACL. However, he returned in 2014 to post career highs in targets (143), catches (85) and receiving yards (1,318), while tying a career high with 10 touchdowns.


Chiefs announce the signing of WR Jeremy Maclin


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) The Chiefs made the signing of wide receiver Jeremy Maclin official on Wednesday, per the team's official website. Maclin reportedly signed a five-year, $55 million contract, including $22.5 million guaranteed, per ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Maclin, 26, set career highs with 85 catches for 1,318 yards last season and matched his career best with 10 touchdowns. It was his only 1,000-yard season of his career. He'll join a Kansas City offense that failed to score a wide receiver touchdown last season.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/11/2015) Receiver Jeremy Maclin will sign a five-year, $55 million contract with the Chiefs, including $22.5 million guaranteed, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Maclin's salary will be $13 million in 2015, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The deal will go through as soon as Kansas City clears enough cap room, according to Mortensen.

Playing for the Eagles, Maclin set career highs with 85 catches for 1,318 yards last season and matched his career best with 10 touchdowns. He'll be Alex Smith's No. 1 receiver as he reunites with coach Andy Reid, who drafted him in 2009 for Philadelphia.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Receiver Jeremy Maclin is expected to reunite with former coach Andy Reid. 

According to a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Maclin will sign with the Chiefs on Tuesday, ending his tenure with the Eagles. The Eagles were previously hoping to keep him in Philadelphia. 

Coming off a torn ACL that kept him out of the 2013 season, Maclin had a career year in 2014, going for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) The Eagles are hopeful that they can retain receiver Jeremy Maclin with a new contract, reports CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. 

Maclin was a big key to the Eagles' offensive success in 2014 as he caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. Maclin is a priority for the Eagles. Maclin did this after missing the entire 2013 season due to a torn ACL. 

The Eagles have been proactive thus far during the legal tampering period as ESPN has already reported that they're signing running back Frank Gore and cornerback Byron Maxwell next week.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) The Texans have targeted Jeremy Maclin, Randall Cobb and Torrey Smith as possible replacements for veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson once free agency begins on Tuesday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Report: Eagles do not apply franchise tag to WR Jeremy Maclin


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will reach the open market as the team decided Monday not to apply the franchise tag to the 26-year-old, according to ESPN.

Maclin, who posted a career season in 2014 with 85 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns, has remained hopeful and confident throughout the offseason a deal will get done to keep him in Philadelphia.


Eagles' Maclin believes contract will take care of itself


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin believes he will be back in Philadelphia in next season. His representatives and the Eagles are in the process of negotiating a new contract for the 27-year-old, who will become a free agent in March unless he is re-signed.

"I'm excited about what the future holds," Maclin said on Friday. "Once again, both sides have made it known what we want to do. I think it will take care of itself."

He could be franchise tagged if a deal is not signed. The tag number for wide receivers is yet to be determined.

Maclin had 85 catches in 2014 for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns in Philadelphia.


Lions wide receiver Golden Tate replacing Jeremy Maclin in Pro Bowl


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Lions wide receiver Golden Tate will replace Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in the Pro Bowl, the team has announced. Maclin has decided to bow out of the game for personal reasons, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

Tate had 99 catches for 1,331 yards and four touchdowns in 2014. He was considered the fourth alternate for the game. It is also the first time in Lions' history two wide receivers will play in the Pro Bowl in the same season.


Eagles' Jeremy Maclin, Jon Dorenbos added to Pro Bowl roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos have been added to the Pro Bowl roster, the team announced Friday.

Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin held to three catches in finale


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/28/2014) Eagles leading receiver Jeremy Maclin, an impending free agent, caught three of six targets for 49 yards in the Week 17 win over the Giants. Maclin finished the season with career highs in catches (85), yards (1,318) and touchdowns (10).

Maclin has said he wants to return to Philly, which drafted him in 2009, and he's expected to be one of the team's offseason priorities.


Eagles' Jeremy Maclin hoping for extension before free agency begins


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is pretty intent on returning to Philadelphia next season. Maclin said Tuesday after practice he is hoping to get a deal done with the Eagles before he becomes a free agent.

“When the time’s right, it’ll get done,” Maclin said. “Both sides have made it clear that they want me to be here. They want me to be here, I want to be here. This is the place I want to be. As long as we can agree to something, this is where I want to be. If something else happens, that’s what happens, but I try not to get caught up in that.”

Maclin is finishing the best season of his young career, with 82 catches for 1,269 yards and 10 touchdowns heading into the last week of the season. 

Maclin was signed to a one-year, $5.25 million deal in the offseason after tearing his ACL in 2013, which gave the Eagles a chance to see what the Missouri product could do when healthy.


Riley Cooper steps up with other WRs quiet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) For as productive as Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews have been in the second half of the season, neither seemed to be a big target for quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 16 at Washington. Tight end Zach Ertz got all the targets for the Eagles, but wide receiver Riley Cooper scored the touchdowns, hauling in a 3-yard slant late in the second quarter and making a leaping 16-yard grab early in the fourth. He finished with five catches for 53 yards.

Cooper entered the game with just one touchdown all season, and he hadn't topped 50 yards since Week 8 at Arizona. Matthews, a rookie, had seemingly overtaken him in the pecking order, but now Matthews has averaged just 33.0 receiving yards in his last four games.

The bigger upset for Cooper in Week 16 was outperforming Maclin, who had four catches for 62 yards. Maclin had only one fewer target than Cooper, though, and still finished with more yardage, so you have little reason to believe Cooper is now the preferred option. He and Matthews may be 2A and 2B, though, which makes both hard to trust Week 17 at the Giants.


Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin held to four grabs in Week 16 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin wasn't much of a factor during Saturday's 27-24 defeat to Washington in Week 16.

Maclin was targeted six times and finished with only four catches for 62 yards. He has been held to four receptions or fewer in each of the past three games -- all resulting in a loss for Philadelphia. He has 82 catches for 1,269 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.

Philadelphia will face the Giants at MetLife Stadium in Week 17.


Eagles' Jeremy Maclin leads team with 98 receiving yards Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught four of his five targets for a team-high 98 yards in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Maclin's highlight came courtesy of a bad decision by his defender, who went for an interception despite having no help behind him. Maclin hauled in the catch and then followed a teammate blocking the one defender remaining between him and the goal line but was dragged down at the one-yard line on the 72-yard play.

Tight end Brent Celek racked up 52 yards while catching four of his six targets. Rookie Josh Huff received just one target but hauled it in across the middle and weaved his way toward the sideline for a 44-yard gain. Tight end Zach Ertz contributed three catches for 32 yards, while wide receiver Riley Cooper managed 17 yards on two receptions. Rookie Jordan Matthews recorded just one target but didn't catch it.

The Eagles will look to rebound against the Redskins in Week 16.


Eagles receivers don't do much Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Eagles receivers didn't amount to much Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Jordan Matthews finished second on the club in receiving, gaining 23 yards on two receptions. Jeremy Maclin had three catches, but did manage to find the end zone. He finished with 21 yards. Maclin's score came on a 1 yard pass in the first quarter. Riley Cooper also had three catches, but gained just 13 yards.

The trio will hope for more Week 15 against the Cowboys. 


Risky week for Eagles wide receivers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) Even with Mark Sanchez under center, the Eagles have had one of the most prolific passing attacks in the league, and wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews have both benefited, the latter joining the former as a high-end option in recent weeks.

But they'll both have their work cut out for them Week 14 against Seattle. Not only do the Seahawks rank third against the pass, giving up 199.4 yards per game, but they've allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. And they've been especially stifling lately, allowing an average of 126.0 passing yards to the last three quarterbacks they've faced.

Just ask the 49ers' Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree how that went for them last week. The two combined for six catches for 28 yards.

Of course, Maclin and Matthews have been much more valuable than Boldin and Crabtree in Fantasy. Maclin will have the occasional stinker but has been more or less a stud from the beginning, and Matthews has five touchdown catches in his last five games.

For what it's worth, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank both Maclin and Matthews among their top 30 wide receivers, with Matthews in their top 24, so if you play in a 12-team league with a flex spot, chances are you're starting both. But if you have uncommon depth at wide receiver, now might be the time to make use of it.


Jeremy Maclin posts fourth 100-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/27/2014) Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin reasserted himself Thursday as the team's leading receiver, catching a game-high eight passes for 108 yards. He was targeted a game-high 10 times.

It was Maclin's fourth 100-yard game this season, and it put him over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career.

Maclin's biggest play came when he caught a sideline route and cut all the way across the field for a 58-yard gain. That set up a field goal on Phillys' third drive.

Maclin plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


Eagles WRs Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper held in check


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper were each held in check during Sunday's victory over the Titans in Week 12.

Maclin received the same amount of targets as rookie wideout (eight), but finished as the team's second leading-receiver with six catches for 59 yards. Cooper caught only three of the six pass thrown in his direction. He finished with 49 receiving yards in a 43-24 defeat.


Jeremy Maclin notches eighth touchdown in road loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/16/2014) Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin caught a team-high nine passes for 93 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 loss at Green Bay. The 20-yard score in garbage time was Maclin's eighth score this season, leaving him two shy of his career high set in 2010.

Maclin led Philly with 11 targets, and the nine receptions were his second-highest total this year. He'll try to keep it up Week 12 against Tennessee.


Jeremy Maclin doesn't join in the MNF fun


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/11/2014) Eagles No. 1 receiver Jeremy Maclin wasn't a big part of the team's 45-21 win over Carolina on Monday. Maclin drew seven targets, second-most on the team, but caught just three for 38 yards.

It was an unusually quiet night for Maclin, who had exploded for 345 receiving yards and four touchdowns over the previous two games. Maclin visits the Packers in Week 11.


Eagles' Maclin: 'The sky is the limit' for QB Mark Sanchez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) The support continues to pour in for Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez, who takes over as Philadelphia's starting quarterback with Nick Foles sidelined. Sanchez is remembered for his struggles toward the end of his tenure with the Jets, but Eagles teammate Jeremy Maclin is the latest player or coach to show confidence in Sanchez.

"The Mark Sanchez I knew when he got here was the quarterback that led [the Jets] to two straight AFC championship games," Maclin said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "He was a quarterback who won at this level as a very high draft pick and did very well with what he was given in New York. 

"Mark can play, man. There’s no question about it. He’s also surrounded by a lot more talent than what he had in New York, so the sky’s the limit."

Stephen Hill, who is a former teammate of Sanchez with the Jets and is now on the Panthers' practice squad, chimed in as well. He said Sanchez shouldn't have any issues with Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. Sanchez makes his first start of the season Monday against Carolina.

"He gets the ball out of his hands quickly," Hill said, per ESPN. "That's going to be a big deal, especially for our defense." 


QB change can't slow down Jeremy Maclin


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin's huge comeback season continued in Week 9 against the Texans, and he showed he can dominate no matter who is throwing him the ball.

With Nick Foles forced out by a shoulder injury, Maclin just kept on rolling. He caught two touchdown passes Sunday, one each from Foles and Mark Sanchez, who could replace Foles for the foreseeable future. In fact, he had four receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown, including a 52-yard reception from Sanchez. 

Maclin has been one of the most productive receivers in the league this season, and the Eagles have done a good job of keeping him involved even with less-than-stellar quarterback play at times. Even if Sanchez remains the quarterback moving forward, Fantasy owners shouldn’t have any second thoughts about starting Maclin in Week 10 against the Panthers.
