Hearing from a source close to #Eagles, Maclin & Sanchez are coming back. Announcement of new the deals should come at some point tonight. — Jon and Sean Show (@JonandSeanShow) March 8, 2015
The Mac Attack may be returning to Philly next season after all.
Per 97.5 The Fanatic's Jon and Sean Show Twitter account, the Eagles have agreed to terms with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and that details of an announcement should come shortly. The tweet also noted that the Eagles have re-upped with quarterback Mark Sanchez. There have since been reports that, indeed, the two sides have ironed out a new two-year agreement.
There has been no official word from the Eagles on either item.
Maclin earned his first-career Pro Bowl nomination in 2014 after setting career highs in receptions (85), yards receiving (1,318) and 100-yard games (4) while tying a career high with 10 touchdown receptions. He was also the Eagles' recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award last season.
A first-round pick of the Eagles in 2009, Maclin has 36 career touchdown catches (7th in Eagles history), 14 100-yard games (7th in Eagles history), 4,771 yards receiving (8th in Eagles history) and 343 receptions (9th in Eagles history) in just five seasons (only four when you consider he missed all of 2013 with a knee injury).
Maclin's rookie contract expired after the 2013 season, but he and the Eagles worked out a one-year deal last offseason with hope that a long-term contract would eventually be hammered out.
