Despite still recovering from ACL tear that he suffered last offseason, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin believes he will have "no limitations" this summer when it comes to participating in workouts, according to CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher. The playmaker told Mosher that if training camp were to start immediately, that he would be a full participant.
Maclin missed all of last season after suffering the knee injury in training camp. He was among a litany of ACL injuries that plagued the offseason for the Eagles. He along with fellow wide receiver Arrelious Benn and linebacker Jason Phillips, spent the offseason rehabbing their tears. Maclin's second major knee injury of his football career concerned fans and local media regarding his future with the team, but the Eagles showed some faith and awarded him a one-year deal worth up to $6 million this offseason.
The Eagles will need Maclin to produce, as the team recently let go of DeSean Jackson and face a pretty tough schedule this season. Maclin is expected to start opposite Riley Cooper or a high draft pick. Cooper broke out last season when Maclin went down.
Maclin, Cooper, Benn, Brad Smith, Damaris Johnson, B.J. Cunningham, Ifeanyi Momah and Jeff Maehl make up the current wide receiver group. The team is likely to address the position in May's NFL Draft.
