Coach Chip Kelly said Jeremy Maclin (ACL) looks "fantastic" so far.
Maclin is one year removed from his ACL tear and penned in as the No. 1 wideout for Nick Foles. He's cutting, planting and bursting without issue. Maclin will be playing the DeSean Jackson "Z" role, a spot that led to D-Jax posting career outlier numbers in his first year under Chip Kelly. Jul 28 - 10:06 AM

Jeremy Maclin (ACL surgery) says that in some ways, he now feels faster.

Maclin participated fully in the entire offseason program, making a strong return from his July 2013 tear. "In some ways I feel more fresh, more physically strong," he said. "I just think you put so much hard work into your rehab process that that's kind of what happens. You get that leg back. You build that leg back stronger." With DeSean Jackson now a Redskin, Maclin is Nick Foles' "Z" receiver and No. 1 wideout. He's playing on a one-year "prove it" deal.

Jeremy Maclin (knee) has practiced in full for the Eagles' entire offseason program.

"I’ve been getting better each and every day, and I’m really happy with my progress," Maclin said. "I feel good, I don’t feel I lost a step, and I’m getting in and out of breaks well." Now nearly 11 months removed from tearing his left ACL, Maclin is a WR3 with WR2 upside in Chip Kelly's offense.

Jeremy Maclin tweaked his left knee at Monday's practice, but is expected to be fine.

Maclin is recovering from a torn right ACL. Maclin went down in a heap, but "bounced up from the turf and walked back to the huddle" after only a few moments. Monday's incident isn't a concern for Maclin's 2014 status, but a reminder of his relative fragility.

Jeremy Maclin is lining up at DeSean Jackson's old position at right-side wide receiver during Eagles OTAs.

Maclin is the new "Z", with Riley Cooper at "X." Rookie Jordan Matthews was excused to attend an NFLPA event, but has been lining up at slot receiver in a Marques Colston-type role. Maclin probably won't do as much slot work as Jackson did -- D-Jax lined up there on 30 percent of his snaps -- but will do the heavy lifting outside. Maclin is a WR3 fantasy pick with WR2 upside.

Speaking Thursday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Jeremy Maclin (knee) has looked "fantastic" in OTAs.

Maclin is 10 months removed from tearing his ACL, and if he isn't 100 percent already, he will be for training camp. He'll be a WR3 with upside as the Eagles' nominal No. 1 receiver this season.
May 29 - 8:59 PM

Jeremy Maclin expects to see some playing time in the slot this season.

Depending on what the Eagles do in the draft, Maclin is a candidate to start at Z receiver and move to the slot in three-wide sets. "I think I’ll do a little bit of everything," he said. "I’m a guy they can move around in different positions." Nine months removed ACL surgery, Maclin has been cleared for limited work during OTAs and expects to be 100 percent for training camp. It's worth noting DeSean Jackson played nearly 30 percent of his 2013 snaps in the slot.
Apr 25 - 5:09 PM

Jeremy Maclin (knee surgery) is participating in pre-draft workouts and said that if training camp started today, he'd have no limitations.

Unlike Robert Griffin III during the 2012 season and Rob Gronkowski last year, Maclin's ACL tear occurred during the preseason. The extra months give him a far more optimistic projection going forward. By the time camp rolls around, Maclin will already be a full year removed from his tear. The Eagles gave him a vote of confidence as their No. 1 wideout when they dumped DeSean Jackson.
Apr 24 - 12:54 PM

Jeremy Maclin (knee) reiterated that he expects to be 100 percent for the first day of training camp.

Maclin tore his right ACL in late July, seven years after suffering the same injury to the same knee prior to his freshman season at Missouri. He says he's making excellent progress this time around. "I'm running, I'm cutting, I'm lifting," he said after signing his one-year deal with the Eagles. "I'm happy with where I am." If truly healthy, Maclin will run circles around Riley Cooper as they battle for snaps in two-wide sets. But given the history of his right knee, we can't be certain that will be the case.

Eagles agreed to terms with WR Jeremy Maclin on a one-year, $5.5 million contract with a max value of $6 million.

It's a master stroke by the Eagles, keeping 25-year-old Maclin off the market where he surely would've been a hot commodity despite last year's ACL tear. Maclin is fully expected to be ready by training camp. Turning 26 in May, Maclin posted a 69-857-7 season in 2012 and will return to compete with Riley Cooper for No. 2 receiver duties in Chip Kelly's attack. The Eagles are highly run based and Maclin will struggle for consistent week-to-week targets, making him a borderline WR3 as it pertains to fantasy. In real-life football, Maclin's return combined with Cooper, Zach Ertz, and Nick Foles' ascension gives Kelly's offense a shot at being even more "multiple" and explosive than the 2013 version, which ranked No. 2 in the NFL in total yards and No. 4 in points scored.
Feb 28 - 3:40 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reported on NFL Insiders that "4-6 teams" are expected to have interest in free agent Jeremy Maclin if he hits the market.

Caplan spoke to "several executives" at the Combine who were under the impression Maclin's surgically repaired knee is doing "great." From a financial perspective, it would certainly seem in Maclin's best interest to test the open market, where he'll be the second most coveted wideout behind Eric Decker. Maclin seemingly prefers to return to Philly, though, targeting a one-year deal.
Feb 27 - 3:40 PM

Profootballtalk reports free agent Jeremy Maclin prefers a one-year, "prove it" deal with the Eagles, while the team wants a multi-year contract.

Maclin wants to prove he's healthy with an eye towards a bigger payday in 2015, while the Eagles see an opportunity to lock up a premium talent at below market value. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday the sides were expected to agree to a one-year deal. Even if the Eagles are holding out hope for a multi-year pact, a one-year agreement ultimately makes the most sense.
Feb 27 - 2:40 PM

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Eagles are talking with free agent Jeremy Maclin but are not close to a deal.

The Eagles wanted to lock up Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Riley Cooper and Maclin before the new league year opened. All the deals are done except for Maclin's. It's a tricky situation because he's coming off a torn ACL and the Eagles just gave Riley Cooper a $25 million deal with $10 million guaranteed. Maclin has conceded he may have to accept a one-year deal, but it now looks like he could find better opportunities elsewhere on a team with fewer mouths to feed (the Jets are reportedly very interested). Eagles beat reporters fully expect a deal to get done in the next 12 days, but it's far from a sure thing.
Feb 27 - 9:33 AM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles are expected to re-sign free agent Jeremy Maclin to a one-year contract.

The Eagles and Riley Cooper are hammering out a new deal at this moment. It appears Philadelphia wants to lock up both free-agent receivers before the market opens on March 11. Beat writer Jeff McLane says Maclin's deal will "most likely" be a one-year, "show me" contract in an effort to rehab his value after tearing his ACL last July. Maclin would be the favorite for No. 2 duties.
Feb 26 - 5:19 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles favor keeping free agent Jeremy Maclin over Riley Cooper.

Per beat reporter Jeff McLane, the "plan" is to retain Maclin on a one-year deal and attempt to acquire another starting-caliber receiver. Cooper remains "on the radar," but securing Maclin will take precedence. Maclin has been connected to multiple teams this offseason, but could be re-signed before free agency. He turns 26 in May and has more long-range upside than Cooper.
