McLane adds that DeSean Jackson‘s $47 million contract extension makes it unlikely that any team would be willing to trade for him and the fact Maclin is a similar type of receiver could at least be enough for them to shop him around the league to see what they could get in return.
Maclin has yet to put together the breakout type of season that many believed he was capable of producing. Pro Football Focus actually has him rated as the No. 93 best receiver out of 104 qualifying players this year. The good news is that Maclin is still just 24 years old and will be under contract for a reasonable salary of $2.853 million next season. Philadelphia has done a great job of maximizing the value of their players in trade negotiations, so it seems likely that they would only consider parting ways with Maclin if they were able to secure a reasonable return.
