Chiefs release WR Maclin in midst of voluntary workouts

Browns coach Hue Jackson says

Browns coach Hue Jackson says "that's a good thing" regarding team's reported interest in WR Jeremy Maclin

The Chiefs released the veteran wide receiver in a stunning move midway through their voluntary workouts, bringing an abrupt ending to the tenure of what was arguably general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid's biggest free-agent acquisition.

If he's able to rebound, plenty of teams would be lucky to have Maclin on board.

"Crazy business this is...appreciate y'all #ChiefsKingdom", Maclin tweeted after his release. "I have a lot of respect for the way he goes about his business and how he handles himself as a professional".

Cutting Maclin might not change that, and it's obvious the Chiefs have a much lower opinion of their No. 1 receiver of the past two years than they did when they signed him to a five-year deal worth $55 million, but this team now has a curious wide receiver depth chart.

The move saves the Chiefs $10 million in salary cap space this season. His cap hit was $12.4 million. The remaining $4.8 million of of his prorated signing bonus would apply toward next year's cap. And new Indianapolis GM Chris Ballard was in charge of player personnel in Kansas City when the Chiefs originally signed Maclin. The NFL ruled the Chiefs tampered with the former Philadelphia receiver before the legal contact period.

The league also levied Reid a fine of $75,000, reduced to $60,000 on appeal.

Maclin followed up by catching 87 passes for 1,088 yards and eight touchdowns, giving quarterback Alex Smith a reliable downfield target.

Last week, Maclin told the Kansas City Star that he could have played better in 2016. "I struggled a little bit past year with injuries and everything else. I'm healthy, and I'm looking forward to getting this thing back on the road".

It had to be someone special. "I could have done a lot better job with the front side of the run to put us in a better position". The team then chose to take the new slicks that had just been put on off the vehicle and replaced them with treaded rain tires.

Maclin spent the past two seasons with the Chiefs, recording 131 catches for 1,624 yards and 10 touchdowns in 27 games.

In 2016, Maclin finished tied for third on the team in catches (44) and third in yards (536).

Maclin would likely come in on a one-year deal considering he needs to show that he can recreate the success that he had prior to last season.

Demarcus Robinson and De'Anthony Thomas have hardly played, while the Chiefs used a fourth-round pick this past April on former MI wide receiver Jehu Chesson. The club invested another fourth-round pick this year in Jehu Chesson. "We wish Jeremy the best as he continues his career".
