The Eagles will not pursue free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.
"At this time, no," coach Doug Pederson said Thursday.
The Kansas City Chiefs released Maclin, the former Eagles Pro Bowler, last Friday. Maclin, 29, spent the first six years of his career with the Eagles. Pederson was Maclin's offensive coordinator with the Chiefs during Maclin's first year with Kansas City, when he had 87 catches for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns. Maclin finished 2016 with a career-low 44 catches for 536 yards and two touchdowns.
The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in March. They drafted Mack Hollins in the fourth round and Shelton Gibson in the fifth round. They also return every wide receiver from last season, including Jordan Matthews.
The depth at the position is why the Eagles are not in the market for Maclin, who has received interest from Buffalo and Baltimore.
"Love the guys that we have," Pederson said. "Always constantly looking and trying to better our roster, but at this time, very pleased with what we're working with and what we have. We have some young talent that's playing extremely well. So next week and going into camp, that's what I'm trying to see – where our young guys are and how well we could handle the workload with what we're trying to do offensively and in our passing game."
