Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin did not play a single snap this season.
Yet, that doesn’t mean his former coach can’t express interest in Maclin. The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in signing Maclin this off-season.
Maclin suffered a torn ACL during training camp in July and sat out the entire season. He is expected to be at full strength for the 2014 season barring any setbacks.
There’s already speculation that he will have to settle for a one-year, incentive-based contract. He was in the final year of his rookie contract when he got hurt.
Maclin is no stranger to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. Big Red drafted Maclin in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft out of Missouri.
If he signs with the Chiefs, he would be the compliment to Chiefs leading wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. This is a role that Maclin is no stranger to, as he was the compliment to Eagles leading wide receiver DeSean Jackson the past four years.
Maclin is regarded as the No. 2 free agent wide receiver this off-season.
