Maclin: This Time For Real?

0 comments

This evening, the Denver Broncos announced they have reached agreement on a five-year contract with first-round pick Robert Ayers, a defensive end drafted 18th overall, one slot before the Eagles took wideout Jeremy Maclin.

Earlier, a source close to the situation indicated Ayers' signing would be a key step in ending the Maclin impasse.

Maclin has missed more than a week of camp. Previously, deals for other receivers, such as wideout Percy Harvin, taken 22nd by the Vikings, were thought to be keys to getting Maclin done, but Harvin signed Sunday and Maclin did not.

When the Maclin deal is consummated, it likely will be for five years, as well.
