Report: Maclin wants one-year deal, Eagles want multi-year contract

Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin wants a one-year deal while the team would like him to sign a “legitimate multi-year contract,” according to Pro Football Talk.

The report says Maclin, who is set to become a free agent on March 11, wants a one-year deal to prove that he has fully recovered from the torn ACL that sidelined him during his contract year. 

The Eagles, on the other hand, want a longer contract, one that would not come with a significant bonus for 2015 if Maclin produces next season.

The Birds have already locked up wide receiver Riley Cooper with a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $25 million. Center Jason Kelce and offensive tackle Jason Peters also received new deals in the past couple days.
