According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inqurier, the Eagles are prioritizing re-signing wide receiver Jeremy Maclin over Riley Cooper.
The Eagles have prioritized retaining Jeremy Maclin before Riley Cooper as the wide receivers near free agency, according to NFL sources.
If all goes to plan, the Eagles will sign Maclin to a one-year contract and attempt to acquire another starting-caliber receiver via free agency. Cooper remains on the radar, and the Eagles could circle back if they don’t land another target, but securing Maclin will take precedence.
What’s really interesting is that Maclin is already drawing interest from other teams.
There is a market for the 25-year-old Maclin despite the fact that he suffered a season-ending knee injury last July. But he will likely have to accept a prove-your-healthy one-year deal, something he has said he had come to terms with.
