Eagles Free Agency Rumor: Jeremy Maclin's price tag continues to rise

New, comments

Could Jeremy Maclin cash-in big time?

Jeffrey G. Pittenger-USA TODAY Sports

It appears as if Jeremy Maclin's price tag continues to rise. The free agent wide receiver is asking for so much money that the Houston Texans will likely take themselves out of the running for his services, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

Maclin is believed to want at least $11 million per year on a long-term deal, but that price may be bigger with him being the top receiver on the market. His one-time rival in the market, Packers receiver Randall Cobb, re-signed in Green Bay on a four-year, $40 million deal on Saturday. It'll be interesting to see how the Cobb deal impacts Maclin's market. Ravens receiver Torrey Smith is widely-considered to be the next best option at the position on the market after Maclin.

The Eagles have already agreed to a massive deal with Byron Maxwell and are said to have interest in Devin McCourty and Orlando Franklin. The Eagles look like they are willing to spend big, so that may go for homegrown talent as well.
