Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin
Nov 16, 2014; Green Bay, WI, USA; Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (18) stretches into the endzone to score a touchdown as Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk (50) tries to make a tackle in the fourth quarter at Lambeau Field. Reuters

Facing free agency after the 2014-2015 National Football League (NFL) season, Jeremy Maclin is stating that he wants to stay with his current team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

“I want to be here, they want me here. We'll get something done,” Maclin said via ESPN. ""When the time's right, it will get done. This is the place I want to be. As long as we can agree to something, then this is where I want to be. If something else happens, then that's what happens. I try not to get caught up in that.”

In the same interview, Maclin mentioned the likes of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly as the guys he looks up to in the organisation and that he wants to spend the rest of his career in Philadelphia.

The 26-year-old wide receiver, who was the Eagles’ first round pick or 19th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Drat, suffered a torn ACL entering the 2013 NFL season and was signed to a one-year $5.5 million deal and worked on a contract extension with the Philly franchise during the 2014 NFL season. After the Eagles got eliminated this season it appears both sides are willing to talk about the probable extension.

The five-year WR logged in 1,269 receiving yards on 137 catches this season both of which are career-highs. He played a total of 15 games and finished with 10 touchdowns, tying his personal best for total TD in a season. He became the number one wide receiver of the Cowboys after the team released DeSean Jackson, who now plays for the Washington Redskins.

Maclin and the Eagles bowed out of playoff contention after a crucial 38-27 loss to division rivals Dallas Cowboys and Redskins in their last two games. Philadelphia faces the also-ran New York Giants in their final game in the regular season.
