After surprisingly being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs late last week, Jeremy Maclin already has two free agent visits lined up. The former vetera NFL wide receiver will visit the Buffalo Bills today on Tuesday before going to meet with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.
It’s not a surprise to see Maclin visit with these two teams. The Bills have been rumored to have interest in Maclin. Former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has been recruiting his old teammate to Buffalo. Maclin has ties to the coaching staff given head coach Sean McDermott’s time in Philadelphia. The presence of former Eagles wide receiver coach David Culley (now a quarterbacks coach in Buffalo) is also worth noting.
Buffalo isn’t the only team that shares connection to Maclin. Former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg now holds the same position with the Ravens. Baltimore is also in need of more help at wide receiver.
The Eagles haven’t shown any interest in Maclin since the former Philadelphia pass catcher has become available. It’s not like Maclin would need to visit Philly in order to sign; he already has a lot of familiarity with this team. But as we’ve previously noted, the Eagles might not make the most sense for him due to money and playing time opportunities.
Seeing Maclin return to Philadelphia would be cool and fun. A number of Eagles fans would certainly enjoy seeing Maclin back in midnight green:
It doesn’t seem likely to happen, though. There’s probably a better chance Maclin ends up signing with one of the two teams he visits this week.
