    Jeremy Maclin as #2/3?



    Just read where the Eagles are actively shopping him. Would anyone be willing to trade a 5th rounder for him? He's been injury prone and a mediocre WR so far in his career but still has a lot of upside if he puts it all together.

    I thought I had read that the Eagles were NOT actively shopping him, but for a 5th round pick it's a no-brainer. Are you kidding me? When healthy, Maclin is a VERY good receiver. He's not elite and he's certainly not measured up to the potential he held as a pro prospect, but he would be a great value for a 5th, and a better fit for our offense than he was in Andy Reid's WCO or Chip Kelly's spread/option.

    The main drawback would be the fact that he's in a contract year. He would have a $3.2m cap figure if traded to the Ravens, and I don't think they'd pay that money and a pick for a one-year rental. It would take a leap of faith to extend him although they'd be buying a bit low on him coming off of a fairly modest year.

    All in all, I think this is one of the few gambles I would actually make.

    Pass. I'm not trading for anyone in the last year of their rookie contract.

    I like Maclin, but he seems to be hurt a lot.

    Hell no. We have 12 selections this year. Move around and nab players that will fit into what we are trying to do. There should be good value at receiver in the mid-rounds.

    He doesn't miss too many games though because of it. In 4 years he's missed just 5 games.

    I doubt the Ravens are in position to offer Maclin a long-term deal, and I'd be surprised if they'd be willing to next year. So to me it's a question of using a 5th round pick to rent his services at a pretty good cap figure next year.

    I think Maclin could easily be great value vs. a 3.2M cap hit, but if that value is only for one year, I feel like it's probably not worth giving up a 5th.

    Maclin for Dickson would make sense for both teams, then we draft a TE, which they will likely do anyhow. We pay more $, they get a lesser player at a need spot.

    Heh... Just beat me to it.

    The "Maclin for a 5th" scenario is a no-brainer IMO but I also thought that PHI was NOT shopping him.

    Actually... thinking it through... with our 2014 cap. I wouldn't bother. Someone out there in a better cap situation would nab themselves very good value for a 5th though.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!

    I'd pass - too much $$$, last year of deal and WAY too injury prone.

    I'm surprised how many are quick to say no and dismiss this guy. The idea that he is injury prone might be an overreaction, he hasn't missed many games. As far as him being elite? Maybe not, but you can argue he's 2nd tier. The guys been in the league for 4 years and has 258 receptions for 3,453 yards and 26 TDs. How many receivers are in that conversation? You wouldn't take that for a fifth rounder or 4th even? Regardless of it being a contract year, worst case scenario, you get 65-70 catches 850-900 yards and 6 TDs from a guy for a 4th or 5th round pick. Best case scenario, he comes of age with Flacco throwing to him and proves to be a #1 and worth a long term deal. Did I mention he's 24? 5th Rounder? No Brainer. 4th rounder? No Brainer.
