Good, bad and ugly: Fallout from Jeremy Maclin’s release
1. The Good:
Once you’re a man’s teammate, there’s a bond that exists forever. Sometimes, the bond is strained, but when those two men share an admiration for one another, the link is truly unbreakable. For whatever reason, LeSean McCoy continues to have an opinion about everything that goes on in Philly even though his time with the team has clearly long been over. He, of course, had an opinion about Jeremy Maclin’s next move, stating he’d love to see a reunion with he and his former teammate and how it would be cool to see Maclin in a Buffalo Bills uniform. His exact words? “Don’t be surprised” if it happened. There’s a rumor waiting to happen.
Here’s another small rumor, but an interesting one.
Torrey Smith, despite signing a three-year deal worth $15 million only represents $500,000 in dead cap space. That, along with the continuing rumors that the Eagles aren’t completely sure about what to do with Jordan Matthews. still leads some to believe there’s an outside shot of Maclin’s return. Let’s get a few things straight. Maclin won’t be back. Smith isn’t going anywhere. The way things are going, it appears Matthews will be back for 2017 as well.
That one had to be cleared up before things got out of hand. Still, Maclin will have some options. Good for him.
