WR Mclin signed a five-year contract with the Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles first-round pick Jeremy Maclin finally got a five-year contract signed with the Eagles, ending his holdout.

It was reported that the contract is worth a maximum of $15.5 million, including $9.5 million guaranteed. After the deal, Maclin will not skip any practice again and is expected to make great contribution on special team. Last season Maclin caught 102 passes for 1,260 yards and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore at Missouri. The Eagles traded up two spots to pick Maclin in the NFL draft. But before the contract was signed, he had been missing all workouts since the Eagles opened camp last Sunday. But now we will see him in eagles jersey again.

Special teams coordinator Ted Daisher praised Maclin Sunday, saying that he did a good job this spring in the OTAs and had been making progress.
