We mentioned earlier that the Eagles and Jeremy Maclin aren’t close to getting deal done.
Now we know why.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Maclin wants to sign a one-year prove it deal and then hit the market in 2015, while the Eagles want to sign him to a multi-year deal.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Maclin wants a one-year deal. He hopes to prove in that one year that he has fully recovered from a torn ACL that wiped out what would have been his contract year in Philly.
The Eagles wants a multi-year deal. We’re told that it wouldn’t be, in essence, a one-year “prove it” deal, with a significant option bonus due in 2015. Instead, it would be a legitimate multi-year contract.
