Report: WR Jeremy Maclin to sign with Chiefs
ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports that Maclin will receive $11 million per season. Before last season, he signed a one-year extension with a maximum value of $6 million and $3.5 million guaranteed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
[daily_cut.nfl]Maclin, 26, spent his first six NFL seasons with the Eagles. He caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, one year after missing the 2013 season due to a torn ACL.
The 19th overall draft pick by the Eagles in 2009, Maclin has caught 343 passes for 4,771 yards and 36 touchdowns over 75 career games.
Maclin, a Missouri native and Missouri Tigers product, is reuniting with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. Reid coached Maclin in Philadelphia from 2009-12.
Last season, the Chiefs became the first team in the modern era to not have any wide receivers catch a touchdown pass over a 16-game season.
After trading running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills last week and releasing wide receiver DeSean Jackson last March, the Eagles' offense has undergone a significant makeover in the past year.
