(NEW YORK) — Despite the stunning departure of wide receiver DeSean Jackson from the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin doesn’t think the team’s offense will skip a beat without the Pro Bowler.
“I think we’ll be fine man. Obviously DeSean is one of the better playmakers in this league but we’re moving forward and I think we’ll be just fine,” Maclin told PhillyMag.com. “I have faith in the offense and I have faith in the guys in the locker room and on the football field.”
For reasons that are still fully unknown, Jackson was released by the team depsite coming off a career year under first-year head coach Chip Kelly.
Maclin missed all of the 2013 season after tearing his ACL. In 2012, Maclin caught 69 passes for 857 yards and also caught seven touchdowns.
