The clock is ticking and minds are pondering what will happen to the Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper. Last year Maclin faced an ACL tear injury in training camp that put him out just before the season started. Maclin’s setback gave Cooper the perfect opportunity to finally show the Eagles what he’s made of, especially after making a racist slur at a Kenny Chesney concert last  summer.

Having an injury like a torn ACL can be tricky when trying to return to the field. There is always a chance the player may not play the same as before. With that being said, many questioned if he can still play at his best and help take the Eagles back to the playoffs next year and even further? More than likely, if the Eagles do decide to keep him it will be for a year to test him out. When asked how he would feel if he was offered a one-year contract, Maclin stated “I’m a realist so I understand that’s a possibility”. Whether Maclin stays with the Eagles or not, a one year contract is something he should expect.
