Jeremy Maclin is entering his sixth season with the Philadelphia Eagles after sitting out the entire 2013 campaign with a freak ACL injury, sustained while making a routine cut in space during training camp. Maclin, with 69 receptions for 857 yards in 2012, inked a one-year, $5.5 million deal, instead of cashing in on a long-term contract extension.
Early Years & College
Maclin was born in Chesterfield, Mo., on May 11, 1988. Maclin was raised by his pee-wee football coach, Jeff Parres, after his biological father abandoned him, and his mother struggled with alcohol addiction. He attended Kirkwood High where he was a star wide receiver, safety and punt returner. He earned first-team All-State honors in 2005 after hauling in 41 balls for 1,042 yards and 11 touchdowns, while averaging 24.6 yards per punt return. After graduating, Maclin went to the University of Missouri and thrived in head coach Gary Pinkel’s spread offense. Maclin, a consensus All-American (2007, 2008), scored a school-record 33 touchdowns in 28 games and became the first player to score via four different methods (receiving, rushing, punt return, kickoff return) at Missouri.
The Eagles selected Maclin in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft (19th overall) after trading up to steal him away from division rival New York. He finished third among NFL rookies that year in receptions (56) and receiving yards (773). Maclin parlayed a successful rookie campaign into an even better sophomore year, leading the team in receiving touchdowns with 10. In 2011, he led the Eagles in receptions (63) and did it again in 2012 with 69 catches for 857 yards. Maclin, who missed the entire 2013 season due to a season-ending ACL injury, has been 100 percent in spring mini-camps. He is expected to start for the Eagles in 2014.
