Even though there are mouths to feed, Jeremy Maclin is finished with football.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, veteran wide receiver Jeremy Maclin announced his retirement today — while at his wife’s baby shower. (Having him around to change diapers might be the best gift of them all.)

The Ravens released Maclin last March, and he wasn’t able to get back into workouts with other teams last year because of a hamstring problem that required surgery.

He caught 514 passes for 6,835 yards and 49 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons with the Eagles, Chiefs, and Ravens.

  1. Sorry John Dorsey ran you out of KC. You will be missed, him and his character issues and finding players with them, aren’t missed.

  2. I thought he’d played for about 12 years.

    Best wishes for a healthy, not-too-painful retirement. Eight seasons of NFL hits is more than enough; he’ll be grateful as he ages that he didn’t try to play a few more.

    Macklin was a tough SOB. He gave it 110 % all the time. Sorry to to see him go.

    Who are you thinking of? This guy quit on the Ravens half way thru his last season

  4. Seems like a solid guy and he was a very good player, especially early in his career with the Eagles.

  5. I liked him as a good #2 wr in philly. I just would have liked to see him take the eagles offer before the 2017 season and finish his career there instead of going to Baltimore. He would have gotten a ring as well.

    Without a doubt, the worst Patriot troll that posts on PFT, you always think you are right, you always put every non Patriot player down. If it’s a Patriot, greatest player on earth.

  7. Liked Jeremy coming out of Missouri. Wished the Chiefs had drafted him. Thanks for your time with the Chiefs, Jeremy. Best of luck with your future endeavors.

    Exactly. And when the eagles beat them in the super bowl, he/she spent the whole offseason trying to discredit the eagles win and rain on our parade, crying on every single article. Pretty sad, actually.

  9. I remember watching the draft hoping theyd move up and grab Crabtree and once he was taken i was hoping theyd take Harvin. Hindsight is 20/20 and THANK THE GOOD LORD they didnt take Percy Harvin!!!!! He became one of my faves on the Eagles and seemed like a great guy. Just wish he wouldve came back to get a ring….. Guess hindsights 20/20 for him as well. Thanx for the memories and enjoy retirement J-Mac!!!!

  10. Sits at #10 on Eagles all-time receiver list, with only 5 seasons. Throw an ACL tear in the middle, 2013…and came back roaring with yds per catch, and catches up >20% for a career year. 36 TD’s in 5 years, on a rookie contract.
