Jeremy Maclin Re-Signs With Philadelphia Eagles


Whatever dream of Jeremy Maclin coming to Kansas City that existed is now dead.

 

 

 

Maclin would have been a solid fit for the Chiefs, who need as much wide receiver help as they can get. However, there are some questions whether or not the Chiefs would have actually made a run at him.

It is very interesting the Chiefs were not mentioned in that tweet, especially since KC would have been the first call Schefter would have made regarding Maclin. Both John Dorsey and Andy Reid said at the NFL Scouting Combine last week they did not anticipate spending a lot of money in free agency this year, and they may be dead serious about that.

As things stand now, the Chiefs are about to lose Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asamoah, Branden Albert, Dexter McCluster, and others in less than two weeks. Rumors are already circulating about Asamoah landing with either the Atlanta Falcons or New York Giants, while Schwartz supposedly has multiple teams interested in him from the combine. There have been no indications – at least not yet – the Chiefs are trying to re-sign either. Same goes for McCluster, and we already know Albert is as good as gone.

So what exactly is the Chiefs’ plan if all of these guys leave via free agency? Obviously the Chiefs are going to have to sign someone as they only have six picks in the draft, but things are staring to get a little more unclear the closer we get to March 11.

    Thank God! Now I don’t have to worry about Mr Glass in a Chiefs uniform

      Because besides his ACL injury he’s only been hurt 5 games..he’s fragile! Watch out!

      Wait…Charles and Berry both tore their ACLs too…does that mean they are “Mr. Glass” too?!

      Besides missing 3 games due to injury, he’s missed 2 games because they thought he had cancer. So claiming a player who has only missed about 2 games more than our star safety and running back is injury prone, or as you put it “Mr. Glass”, is a ridiculous comment. Not sure who or where you get your information from or what grounds your opinion comes from, but you seems to be looking in the wrong places.

    A one year deal? What’s up with that?

    We can’t let Schwartz and Asamoah go. Need to sign at least one of them.

    I hope I’m proven wrong, but I thought a lot of the R&D signings last year were going to leave us in a bad cap situation for years to come and it seems like it’s coming to fruition.
    Time will tell, but so far I’m not as high on Dorsey as slot of my fellow addicts seem to be. I give him credit for going out and spending money last year, but that only works if the money was spent in on the right players. If not, at least Pioli always left plenty of cap space for the next guy…
