Maclin deal getting close?

New, comments

With more and more first round picks around Jeremy Maclin inking deals in the past day, rumors of a contract between he and the Eagles are heating up.

There were indications last night that a deal might be near between the Birds and their first-round wideout, who has missed six workouts in shorts, five of them held among rookies and a handful of veterans recovering from injuries. Team sources seemed to think the gap was narrowing, and that the rising number of slots being filled in above and below Maclin should speed the process.

Multiple reports say Maclin is in Philadelphia and the moment he gets word of a deal he can be in camp within hours. Today marks the first day of full squad workouts and while Maclin has missed valuable time already, now is when he could start to fall very far behind.
