Jeff Maehl Emerging In Eagles Offense

Posted Nov 9, 2013

Wide receiver Jeff Maehl is gaining more and more playing time in the offense, trying to find his comfort zone, and on Sunday he delivered a big play on the team’s opening drive, catching a 19-yard pass to convert a third-and-16 situation as the Eagles scored a touchdown on the way to 49 points.

It was a breakthrough moment for Maehl, who has 4 catches for 67 yards and a touchdown this season after the Eagles acquired him a trade with Houston.

“It was a big play in the game to keep that drive alive and keep our momentum going," Maehl said. "I struggled a couple of weeks ago and didn’t help Nick (Foles) out too much against Dallas, so for me to go out and help the team, it was big.”

Maehl, who played for head coach Chip Kelly at Oregon, caught a couple of passes for 43 yards late in the loss at Denver – he had a 37-yard grab and a 6-yard touchdown catch, the first of his career – is working his way into the rotation a little bit more as he gets up to speed in the offense.

“I’m definitely all up to speed and feeling like I’m ready when needed,” said Maehl. “I hope the reps come. It seems like in the last month I’m part of the rotation and we’re all used to the rotation and it’s working well.”
