Maclin not a must, but we do need to bring in a vet WR. Who's available?

Apparently Maclin, Desean, Shady weren't musts.

If no Maclin is Crabtree almost a must?

Crabtree sucks. Pure possession guy with reduced YAC ability now.

Uh oh:

Mort: The Eagles' wild ride will continue: Jeremy Maclin plans to reunite with Andy Reid in Kansas City once free agent market opens Tuesday.

8:28pm - 8 Mar 15

Wow that sucks. Outside of the Maxwell signing and Alonso I'm OK with but not feeling great about these moves or lack of.

Ugh. I've been a critic of Maclin's lack of toughness, but he had a great season last year and without him, our WR group becomes one of the weaker ones in the league.

This relatively good day has gone to #### in a hurry. Who in gods name is Marcus going to throw to??

Sproles?

@BartHubbuch: The trade demands when Chip Kelly starts calling the top five or six teams in the draft are going to be hilarious.

Can't disagree.

He will throw to, ertz, mathews, sproles, gore, huff, celek, and whomever they sign/draft

Not a single deep threat in any of that. Just like last year.

The Maclin writing was somewhat on the wall when they didn't franchise him. The hearsay that they were miles apart on Thursday I guess was right.

This is either going to be Bellichek or McDaniels 2.0. There is no in between.

Isn't the Chip offense not really reliant on deep passes? Kinda like SEA. Take it when it comes?

The only WRs left on the market (or likely to be available ala Dwane Bowe) are clearly a tier below the guys we've let go the last two seasons and have a reputation as #culture problems as well. I admit I'm more of a "glass half empty" guy but I think it's just as likely Kelly walks away from a pile of ashes in two years than this actually works out. You can't just keep letting/forcing talent out the door and think the scheme is going to make up for it. Don't care what a great guy Will Murphy is. I'd rather still have Jackson.

Maclin was fast enough to get deep, although not the same kind of threat as Jackson. With the targets that are left, they're not giving the D much of a reason to spread out. We'll see how the rest of the offseason goes, but boy we have some holes now.

Can't see it. Harvin's a locker room cancer. He makes DeSean Jackson look like Larry Fitzgerald from an attitudinal standpoint.

Sorry didn't mean that necessarily direct ed at you. Just keep hearing about Kelly's offense etc. Just can't believe he doesn't want to keep players that have been productive for him and before him for that matter.

Wasn't Andre Johnson told he could explore FA? I know he's up there in age and all, but if possible and not costing a fortune, I'd like to see Chi explore that.

Yeah, its unlikely, but he is the best WR left. After that its Crabtree, Britt, Shorts, Andre, Bowe, Hartline and Stevie.

Harvin's someone the Eagles don't want...I'd imgaine even if they're paying him next to nothing.

I'd look at Shorts and Kenny Britt. Both young enough to still improve and at times, both have shown talent.

I get it. Look, BB hasn't had a true long WR since Moss. SEA goes UDFA. CHI got 3 huge targets for Cutler. BAL gets a tough vet and some young speedsters every year. Etc. Teams develop strategy and identity.

If CHIP is the true Head ####er then he gets to pick guys that match his system. That's what college guys do :shrug: Not saying it's wise or stupid. Just is.

Crabtree I wouldn't mind taking a look at for a much cheaper rate. Like $6-7 mil/yr. He has elite talent and was in a ####ty offense for WRs. Maybe change of scenario and an offensive guru gets him to buy in.

Who's the former 100 million man? Vick?

I was wondering as well, would have to be Vick wouldn't it?

It was a shot at Foles.

Sanchez having such an incentive based deal is telling of a QB competition. One doesn't exist with Mariota. If we move to get him he's the starter.

Wait, what?? You're telling me there's open competition between Foles and Sanchez? And the incentives aren't there in case Mariota stinks? Seriously, an open competetion between Foles and Sanchez? After what we all witnessed Sanchez do last season, and what Foles has done in thr last two?

Signing Sanchez was insurance. If they miss out on MM, then Foles and Sanchez will have a short QB competition in starting camp. If they draft MM then they are under no pressure to start MM. Gore and Sanchez are not sexy moves by no means but they will benefit the team and direction.

Yea I don't think there's a question that Foles is the guy if MM is not here.

I can't see how he's getting a deal like that unless he was told something beforehand. If it's not for competition it's in the event of a foles injury. Either way, IMHO, this finishes off the Mariota talk.

Start looking at Jalen Strong

Dude's starting day 1 if he's here. All we hear about is how perfect he is for this offense. Well then, I want 3rd year results from the rook.

Sure there will be. But that's only if MM looks ready and Chip isn't starting him (which I won't think will happen). If MM's ready...he'll play.

That's why I think they can go to the playoffs with him his rookie year.

If the Eagles trade away their future to move up to get MM, he's starting day 1 and it's his to lose IMO.

There's going to be too many needs to go up to get Cooper or White IMO. It will be Parker or Strong IMO.

I'd like to have Devan Smith but Im not sure he plays big enough

Sanchez signed as backup so when they trade Foles to move up to get MM they have a vet backup. Why is that so hard to understand?

Yes, with his size, how would he ever catch for 1300 yards? :rolleyes:

What if Folesy is in the trade to get MM?

They're in a bit of a pickle with Foles....with him being a FA next year....he's either got to be the starter and franchise QB or he's got to be traded for the future franchise QB. No way they can hold onto him for a year and then let him walk at the end of this year.

Part of me's hoping TEN buys into the "you need a franchise QB to succede in the NFL", refuses to trade the pick for anything and just takes MM.

If there's a completion he will win it and get extended

If there's not one he will get an extension shortly after the draft and be named starter.

If he does not get an extension and explodes ala 2013 he gets franchised.

I get it but he was a huge volume guy with Foles and I'm sure many fans will tell you that he doesn't play big.
