Chiefs part with WR Maclin in salary-cap move

Ron Matthews | 05 June, 2017, 03:19

The Kansas City Chiefs released wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on Friday, the team announced in a statement.

Maclin, who was two years into a five-year $55 million deal, was abruptly cut Friday afternoon, after posting two touchdown catches, 536 yards receiving and 44 catches while making almost $10 million.

Dorsey added that he had great respect for every player, which makes the decisions the team has to make quite hard but the team felt it was in its best interest to move forward, while parting ways at the same time.

Kansas City traded up to draft Smith's eventual replacement Patrick Mahomes before releasing his best receiver, Jeremy Maclin, on Saturday.

The move saved the Chiefs $10 million in cap space.

Reid added that he respected how Maclin goes about what he does and how professional he is in handling himself.

"Jeremy's a great person, a great teammate, a great player", Smith said.

"He played through a lot a year ago, played through injuries and pushed through trying to help this team".

Maclin was married in May to longtime girlfriend Adia Kuzma.

Maclin alone has 474 catches and 46 touchdowns.

Bears - Yes, they signed a plethora of free agents this offseason, including Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton, but the Bears need game changers. Rookie Tyreek Hill was dynamic as a rookie last season, leading the wide receivers in receptions with 61 and six touchdowns.

Maclin consistently got first-team reps in OTA practices, though there was some rotation among the skill players. Maclin's ability to stretch the football field with his speed, along with the ability to lineup as a slot receiver could help the Bills' offense. Maclin, however, likely would want some decent cash being sent his way.

Despite Maclin being 29-years old at a skill position, the Raiders (nor their fans) should expect for the WR to accept a contract less than what the average No. 2 wide receiver in the National Football League gets paid. Conley caught 44 passes for 530 yards and no TDs last season. He also missed four games due to a groin injury, but when he did play, he struggled to rekindle his connection with quarterback Alex Smith, as the two appeared to be uncharacteristically out of sync at times.
