The Seahawks worked out a number of quarterbacks in recent weeks, and the most high-profile of them was Colin Kaepernick. Coach Pete Carroll talked him up, but decided to go in a different direction when the team announced the signing of Austin Davis.
If you’re wondering “Who?” you aren’t alone. The 28-year-old quarterback has been a journeyman, bouncing from the Rams, Browns and Broncos in the last three years. He actually received some hype in 2014 as a member of the Rams when he had back-to-back games of 300+ yards and three touchdowns. Outside of that, however, he’s been marginal.
Here are three teams that could use Maclin’s services next season.
Bears — Yes, they signed a plethora of free agents this offseason, including Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton, but the Bears need game changers. Kevin White should be back in the mix, but two years of injuries leaves his career muddled at best.
Last year’s breakout sensation Cameron Meredith is expected to take over departed Alshon Jeffery’s place as the team’s No. 1 receiver. If White is unable to reach his full potential, or gets injured again, Maclin could be a suitable option to line up opposite Meredith, presenting Mike Glennon with an experienced target.
Saints — Maclin would truly be a luxury for Sean Payton’s explosive offense, but a second glance at New Orleans’ depth chart shows this team is dangerously thin at wide receiver.
The Saints signed Ted Ginn Jr. to offset the loss of Brandin Cooks, and Lsu Cheap Jerseys Michael Thomas proved he’s a bona fide No. 1 receiver as a rookie last year, but Willie Snead and Kids Football Jerseys Cheap unproven Brandon Coleman are the other likely receivers to get playing time this season.
