03:43 PM ET 06.30 | Jeremy Maclin's future in Philadelphia beyond the 2013 season is in doubt. The fifth-year wideout is entering the final year of the rookie contract he signed in 2009, and the Eagles will have to decide sometime between now and next March whether to re-sign him. Maclin has been productive through four seasons, but hasn't reached the upper limits of the potential projected by many when he was selected No. 19 overall in the NFL Draft. Maclin himself understands that he may be playing for long-term deal this season. Via Philadelphia Magazine: "This is the team and organization that drafted me. I don't want to leave," Maclin said. "But at the end of the day, that's going to get brought up and come up when it's time for it. All I can do is go out there and play ball, and I'm going to play to the best of my ability."

Kind of hard to be a top tier WR when you have poor QB play.

Maybe he just feels safe there?

Safe in Philly? Only if the only other option was Detroit.

NO, safe as in safe in the locker room. ( a sic reference to the Wade Davis story ). I apologize to all the pigmies and anyone else.

You beat me to it, but you hit the bull's eye. Let the Eagles release him and then pair him with Manning or Brady and see how he does.

Why waste your time with Manning??? He has only a couple of more years left, his "Window of Opportunity" is closing and Brady isn't far behind.

Why would you say that?? The Eagles are probably the second best team in the NFC East.
