- Mortensen adds that the Chiefs will need to clear cap space, which can be done by releasing WR Dwayne Bowe.
- Jeff McLane is hearing that Maclin will receive $11 million per year in his contract with the Chiefs.
Numerous reports in recent days have said that Maclin was likely to return to the Eagles, as they were reportedly pushing to get him under contract.
However, it appears as though the Chiefs made him an offer he can’t refuse.
Maclin, 26, missed the entire 2013 season after he suffered a torn ACL. The Eagles later signed him to a one-year contract worth $5.5 million, even though they were reportedly interested in giving him a multi-year agreement.
In 2014, he caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
We had Maclin currently listed as the No. 7 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
