The Eagles aren't holding Jeremy Maclin back in workouts. He has lined up on the right in DeSean Jackson's old spot opposite Riley Cooper.
Thursday was the first opportunity to watch all the new pieces on offense, but rookie receiver Jordan Matthews was excused to attend the NFLPA's rookie symposium in Los Angeles. Cooper said that Matthews had been practicing in the slot with the first team.
Maclin was the #13 WR in 2010, #31 in 2011 and #27 in 2012 before tearing his ACL last summer. The Eagles don't throw as much under Kelly as they did under Andy Reid, but Maclin has the talent and opportunity -- DeSean Jackson is gone -- to be a fantasy starter in 2014, provided his knee is good to go.
