The Philadelphia Eagles can now get a very good idea of what Jeremy Maclin is worth. Yesterday, the Packers signed Randall Cobb to a 4 year deal worth 40 million dollars. There were multiple reports saying that Cobb wanted 11 million a year, but he was willing to take a home town discount to stay with the Packers.
Maclin on the other hand was looking for 10 million a year. With the market set by Cobb’s signing the Eagles can now expect what a team will pay. While some teams might be willing to pay a little more, Maclin will have to make the decision if he wants to leave or stay with Chip Kelly. According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, when the full details of Cobb’s deal are released, teams will know exactly what to offer.
Cobb reportedly will be paid $17 million guaranteed by the Packers. It’s not yet known how much of it is fully guaranteed at signing, or how the $40 million is distributed over the next four seasons.
The details could reveal a contract that, as a practical matter, lasts only one or two years. Whatever the specifics, the full guarantee at signing and the overall structure will shed plenty of light on what other veterans can expect to be paid — and on whether it’s anywhere close to the $10 million per year it’s being sold as.
