Free Agent WR Jeremy Maclin Undergoing Surgery, Will Not Play This Season


According to Mike Garafolo, veteran free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is undergoing hamstring/glute surgery and will not play for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Garafolo adds that Maclin’s injury has prevented him from working out for teams but he is expected to be fully recovered for 2019.

The last we heard about Maclin in September, Garafolo reported that he was “close to being healthy” and was expected to begin taking visits. However, it appears that he never fully recovered. (NFLTR)

Garafolo also reported in September that the Eagles were “keeping tabs” on Maclin, so they may be a team to keep an eye on next offseason.

Maclin, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009. He spent five years with the Eagles before signing a five-year, $55 million contract that included $22.5 million guaranteed with the Chiefs in 2015.

After being released by the Chiefs, Maclin signed him to a two-year, $11 million contract with the Ravens last year. Unfortunately, Baltimore elected to release Maclin back in March in a move that created $5 million of available cap space.

In 2017, Maclin appeared in 12 games for the Ravens and caught 40 passes for 440 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 52 receiver out of 118 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available 2018 NFL Free Agents list.
