Maclin expected to sign with the KC Chiefs on Tuesday

The Philadelphia Eagles have made three big pending moves today. However, one of their free agents is flying the coup.

Jeremy Maclin will sign a free agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. It is not known how much he’s going to get at this time.

This move will make Maclin the top receiver, as he replaces underachieving Dwayne Bowe. Also, the moves reunites him with former Eagles coach Andy Reid.

He was regarded as the top free agent wide out left with Randall Cobb re-signing with the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night.

The Chiefs will have to make room for Maclin, as they are already close to the salary cap. Bowe is expected to be released, as the team does not believe he is worth $14 million.

This season, none of the Chiefs wide receivers had a touchdown. Maclin is expected to change that immediately going into next season.

Before signing a one-year deal to stay with the Eagles, there was speculation that this move could have happened last year.

He took an incentive-based contract, and he produced. He had 1,318 yards with 10 touchdowns last season.

This is the second straight year that the Eagles lost their top wide receiver. Last year, the team released DeSean Jackson at the end of March, before he signed with the Washington Redskins.

With Jackson and Maclin both gone, Riley Cooper is now the top target for the Eagles at the moment.
