With the NFL Draft now behind us, there are some players currently on rosters in the league that are now in direct danger of losing their jobs and being forced to look for work after the 2014 season concludes. Near the top of that list is Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who seems to have little to no future with the Eagles after their draft produced two wide receivers who will look to supplant him in the depth chart.
According to the Boston Globe, the writing is on the wall for Maclin and his one year deal now seems more like charity than it does an actual contract.
He just signed a one-year deal to start alongside Riley Cooper, but the writing is on the wall that he’s not long for the Eagles. They gave Cooper, not Maclin, the long-term deal, and just drafted Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff in the second and third rounds.
He’s coming off of an ACL injury, so at the very least Maclin will be able to go out and prove that he can still play hard and function on a football field. He won’t be able to do much more though as the receivers the Eagles have invested more in seem to have more to offer than Maclin does and it’s a matter of time before he’s out looking for work elsewhere in the NFL.
