Eagles coach Andy Reid recently said that the signing of former Giants receiver Steve Smith has no bearing on the status of receiver Jeremy Maclin.
Receiver DeSean Jackson says otherwise.
“The reason why they picked [Smith] up is they’re unsure of Maclin’s health,” Jackson said Saturday, according to Les Bown of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Maclin’s health generally remains a mystery. And in the absence of specific information, speculation has been rampant, with all sorts of rumors making the rounds on the Internet.
Here’s hoping that, whatever it is, it isn’t serious; Maclin is only 23.
