Maclin Still Believes in Chip Kelly


There were more ex-Eagles than current Eagles at Todd Herremans’ third annual Hoops 4 Hope fund raiser Thursday night at Vie Restaurant. A month ago, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole and Herremans were four of the more notable Eagles and accounted for a combined 32 seasons in Philadelphia.

But after a flurry of moves and decisions from Chip Kelly that had McCoy dealt to the Bills, Maclin choosing the Chiefs, Cole and Herremans released and eventually signed by the Colts, and Nick Foles traded to the Rams, the Eagles took on a dramatically different look in a matter of weeks.

“If you would have told me two years ago that that would be the case, I would have laughed,” Maclin said when asked if he could have envisioned the Eagles parting with the starting quarterback, running back and No. 1 wide receiver in the same offseason. “This is a business, man. Things like that happen.”
