Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin gets what he wants, agrees to 1-year contract

As expected, the Eagles have re-signed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18, and it appears the player got what he wanted out of negotiations. The two sides agreed to a one-year deal on Friday worth up to $6 million. He will get $3.5 million guaranteed.
Maclin missed all of the 2013 season due to a torn ACL. It was reported Thursday that the Eagles preferred Maclin sign a multi-year contract now, knowing that his value has declined following a lost year. Maclin desired a single-season deal to prove he is healthy and can be productive again before hitting the market in 2015 with a larger pay day in mind.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Eagles are the league's big spenders right now. Just this week, they've invested lots of money into offensive lineman Jason Peters and Jason Kelce, and wide receiver Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14. The Maclin deal is pocket change by comparison. Maclin will lose a good number of targets to Cooper next season, but I think talent wins the day, and he should be more productive than Cooper, even if that means he is only a WR3 in 10- or 12-team leagues. Maclin will be just 26 years old this May.
