There were strong indications late this morning that the Eagles are close to completing a deal with Jim Steiner, the agent for rookie WR Jeremy Maclin.
Steiner, in fact, has told some people that a deal will be struck today.
The Eagles' first-round pick was scheduled to report a week ago today with the rest of the team's rookies and has missed 11 practices, including this morning's rain-shortened session at Lehigh University.
If Maclin signs this afternoon, it's possible he could be in attendance for tonight's Flight Night! practice at Lincoln Financial Field.
