Adam Teicher of ESPN.com was asked whether the Chiefs might target wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in free agency since he played under Chiefs head coach Andy Reid in Philly.
My only questions about Jeremy Maclin, the former Missouri wide receiver now with the Philadelphia Eagles, are his health and his contract demands. He missed last season because of a torn ACL. The injury happened at camp in July. The Chiefs won’t have a lot of room under their salary cap so I don’t see them winning any bidding wars for free agents like Maclin. But if he will be ready when the regular season begins and he would come at a salary that’s comfortable to the Chiefs, then there’s no downside. He will turn 26 in May, and he’s an accomplished receiver with experience in Andy Reid’s system.
The good news is that with Maclin coming off ACL surgery, he doesn’t have much leverage. The Chiefs might be able to get him to sign a one year deal that would make sense for both sides.
