Doug Pederson said he spoke to Jeremy Maclin over the weekend about rejoining the Eagles.

Pederson was asked by reporters last week if the Eagles had interest in Maclin, and Pederson responded, “Not at this time.” It came out Monday, after Maclin picked the Ravens, that the receiver’s decision had come down to Baltimore and Philadelphia.

“As I’ve said, we’re always looking for talent and ways to upgrade this roster,” Pederson told the team website. “At the time, when I was asked that question, I had not talked to Jeremy, but when he was still available over the weekend, we got together as a staff and discussed it. I called him and spoke to him and had a good conversation just to see what he was thinking, where he was at.

“He made the decision today to sign with Baltimore, and we wish him the best of luck. We feel very good about what we have at wide receiver, but again we’re always going to keep our eyes open for ways to improve our football team at any position.”

Maclin played for the Eagles from 2009-14 before leaving for Kansas City, which released him earlier this month.

    The Eagles don’t need Maclin. I can’t wait to see Alshon Jeffries and all of the Eagles wide receivers now that they have a really good wide receiver coach.

    As a fan of Maclin i would have loved the reunion but, as a fan of the Eagles Maclin is better off with the Ravens. Him choosing them over the Eagles shows he doesnt want competition. He isnt the number one guy on 28 teams including the Eagles. He would not be the go to guy here. He has lost a step. The Ravens have zero WRs. He will have a chance to shine ir fail there. Reid knows when to release a player. He cut Maclin why?

    Maclin is garbage. Andy Reid told me so.

    The Ravens are the better opportunity — he will be a primary receiver and their defense looks very solid this year. Eagles have a crowded receiving corps.
