Jeremy Maclin Signs Five-Year Deal with the Philadelphia Eagles

Michoel BotwinickSenior Analyst IAugust 4, 2009

According to multiple sources, Jeremy Maclin reached an agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles late last night.

The two parties reportedly agreed on a five-year deal worth $15.5 million, $9.5 million of which are guaranteed. It is unclear whether this was Maclin's original asking price.

The 19th overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, Maclin scored 33 total touchdowns and piled up 5,609 all-purpose yards over his two-year collegiate career at Missouri. He posted single-season school records with 102 catches and 1,260 receiving yards along with 13 TD grabs last season.

Now that his holdout is over, Maclin must catch up on nine days worth of missed practices.

According to PhiladelphiaEagles.com, he (Maclin) is taking a flight from St. Louis, Mo (to Philadelphia). He has to take a physical when he gets to Lehigh and is expected to hold a press conference after the afternoon special teams practice. That means he will most likely not be participating in the special teams practice.

According to an official poll, 36.3 percent of fans view Maclin as "too talented to keep off field", but only 12.3 percent think he will be a "big-time player by mid-season". I however, voted that it was "way too early to predict" what Maclin will do on the gridiron.
