Chiefs release WR Maclin after two seasons

Jeremy Maclin is looking for a new team

Download our online chat with Col. Brandon Pearce, chief information security officer for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

By releasing Jeremy Maclin post June 1, Chiefs save $10 million against cap. He was set to count $10 million against the cap in 2017, which has to be considered the primary motivation for Kansas City releasing the veteran.

The Chiefs now have $3,511,734 in cap space for 2017, according to the current NFLPA salary cap report.

Reid added that he respected how Maclin goes about what he does and how professional he is in handling himself. "Jeremy is a really good friend, an fantastic teammate, so still kind of just processing that he's not going to be in there with us, a guy that's done a lot for us the last two years, a guy I've grown really close to". But even with the big 2015 season signing him proved to be costly on more than one level, as the Chiefs were found guilty of tampering by contacting that year.

Maclin had only 44 catches for 536 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City last season. Still, Maclin helped the offense in a major way when it comes to scheming and has two 1,000 yard seasons and two ten touchdown years in his career.

The Assetmark Inc. Reduces Position in Realty Income Corp (O)
It dived, as 45 investors sold SLG shares while 109 reduced holdings. 60,924 are owned by Robeco Institutional Asset Mgmt Bv. Assetmark Inc. lowered its stake in Realty Income Corp (NYSE:O) by 4.6% during the first quarter, Holdings Channel reports.

Check out Federal News Radio's latest podcasts. That season Maclin caught 87 passes for 1,088 yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games.

Maclin is just another high-profile skilled position player that has been cut by Kansas City since the end of the regular season. And by not playing well, I feel like I let my team down. We were so close (last season). Hawkins is now a member of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

"Crazy business this is...appreciate y'all #ChiefsKingdom", Maclin tweeted. "I've never been a stat guy".

Getting Maclin to run down deep shots from Joe Flacco would alleviate the Ravens' frustration of not landing a game-changing wide receiver this offseason and losing top pass-catcher Dennis Pitta to another hip injury. D'Anthony Thomas will fight for a spot and the team drafted Jehu Chesson out of MI.
