During an appearance on Adam Schefter’s podcast “Know them from Adam“, Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin explained that he suffered a groin tear last year, which impacted his playing ability.
“Well, I tore my groin last year,” Maclin said. “So, if I’m supposed to be just as fast with a torn groin, then more power to them. Man, I guess they just have to wait and see. I don’t really have anything else to say about that. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. I’ll still be able to get open. I’ll still be able to make big plays, that’s for sure.”
Even upon returning got the Chiefs, Maclin says that he still wasn’t 100 percent healthy.
“I came back and I was able to play but I can’t sit up here and tell you I was 100 percent,” Maclin said. “I’m also not going to sit up here and make excuses. At the end of the day, I didn’t play as well as I could have last year and that’s ultimately what happened.”
In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, veteran coach Norv Turner didn’t rule out the possibility of returning to coaching at some point.
“I’ve had a couple (coaches) reach out to me and ask if I could come in for two or three days to just visit and maybe help a little bit or give some opinions,” Turner said, via the Sporting News. “I’m open to continue coaching in the future. A lot of that would depend on the opportunity.”
