FOR JEREMY Maclin, the waiting and the uncertainty and the word cancer combined to conjure up the kind of burden no kid should have to carry. Anyone can empathize with Maclin's struggle the last few months, and with the joy of a clean diagnosis he must currently feel. Few, though, understand the rest of it: Maclin's quiet insistence on dignity and privacy as his medical situation remained uncertain. He is a celebrity, after all, a wide receiver whose potential for stardom is as underrated as the man himself is understated.

Friday was Jeremy Maclin's 24th birthday. It didn't have to include anything special to mark a huge improvement over his 23rd. May 11, 2011, was when Maclin learned the results of tests done after the Eagles wideout couldn't quite shake an undetermined illness earlier in the spring. The tests showed inflamed lymph nodes. Doctors thought Maclin might have lymphoma. He had been unable to eat, just wanted to sleep, he said. It took more than 3 months from Maclin's birthday for everything to look normal again and for everyone to conclude that whatever illness Maclin had suffered, he had come out of it OK, didn't have any kind of cancer.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - With Jeremy Maclin out with shoulder and hamstring injuries, the Eagles were in dire need of production from their receivers to complement DeSean Jackson. The understudies caught on well as Riley Cooper had his first touchdown of the season and Steve Smith added his first as an Eagle in the 17-10 win over the Giants in Sunday's NFC East matchup at MetLife Stadium. Chad Hall also made some key plays in his first game this season and tight end Brent Celek was his usual steady self.

1. Very confident. He showed what he could do against the Falcons. 2. Not so confident. With Jackson out, Maclin will be a marked man.

JORDAN MATTHEWS was ticked. He had run the sideline pass route cleanly, but the ball arrived a little late and a little high, and by the time he jumped and extended all of his 6-3 frame to haul it in, a defensive back was upon him and there was no room to run. And thus, no first down. So, as Matthews ran from the field, the sound of his frustration carried out across the practice fields of the NovaCare Complex. Carried, literally, into the streets. "That's nothing," he said after the second day of minicamp had come to an end. "That's just competing.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Kevin Kolb heaved a pass skyward and the receiver at the other end wasn't Hank Baskett or Riley Cooper or Chad Hall. It was DeSean Jackson and all felt right in Eagles country. The team's No. 1 wide receiver returned from a back injury Friday, and while it is still early in training camp, Jackson's presence was good news for an offense that had struggled over the previous few days. "It feels good," Kolb said. "I'm looking forward to having [Jeremy] Maclin making it back, as well.

The Eagles signed yet another free agent - inking former New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith on Wednesday - and in the process managed to swipe a key piece from an NFC East rival. Of question, however, is whether the Giants were outbid for Smith or whether they felt the receiver, who had microfracture knee surgery in December, was damaged goods and simply let him go. Giants coach Tom Coughlin recently said that Smith had a long haul. "I would disagree with that," Smith said during a conference call.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - With the Eagles offense struggling and with three turnovers against the Arizona Cardinals in the first half on Sunday, it may not have been the best time for the Birds to overlook an important component of the passing game. Despite Jeremy Maclin's being out with a hip injury, coach Andy Reid did not go out of his way to compensate. Instead of getting DeSean Jackson more touches and a greater share in the overall game plan, Reid decided on a balanced approach. Through a difficult first half and a more challenging second half, Jackson seemed to be less on Michael Vick's radar screen and more in the Cardinals' defensive preparation.

The Kansas City Chiefs were docked two draft picks and fined by the NFL for violating the league's anti-tampering policy because of "improper contact" with Jeremy Maclin when the wide receiver left the Eagles for Kansas City last offseason. The Chiefs lost a 2016 third-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick and were fined $250,000. Andy Reid, the former Eagles coach who now coaches the Chiefs, was fined $75,000. General manager John Dorsey was fined $25,000. The league said the Chiefs had "direct communications" with Maclin during the open negotiating period.

THERE WAS a moment a couple of weeks ago during an 11-on-11 period that made you stroke your chin a bit. Darren Sproles, isolated on a linebacker on the right side of the formation, took a couple of steps and busted a slant across his defender's inside shoulder for an easy catch-and-run in the middle of the field. It was the kind of play we have seen throughout the career of the little two-legged hovercraft, and you couldn't help but wonder if it was something that Chip Kelly decided he was going to need to see more of after Jeremy Maclin signed with the Chiefs in March.

There were more ex-Eagles than current Eagles at Todd Herremans' third annual Hoops 4 Hope fund raiser Thursday night at Vie Restaurant. A month ago, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole and Herremans were four of the more notable Eagles and accounted for a combined 32 seasons in Philadelphia. But after a flurry of moves and decisions from Chip Kelly that had McCoy dealt to the Bills, Maclin choosing the Chiefs, Cole and Herremans released and eventually signed by the Colts, and Nick Foles traded to the Rams, the Eagles took on a dramatically different look in a matter of weeks.

PHOENIX - When Andy Reid outbid the Eagles for Jeremy Maclin, the irony that the Chiefs coach was willing to spend top dollar on a wide receiver was not lost on anyone familiar with his past. Reid, of course, hardly ever gave big contracts to receivers when he was with the Eagles, and when he did sign Terrell Owens and DeSean Jackson to long-term deals, they were team-friendly. The rationale, one that team president Joe Banner also perpetuated, was that other positions, particularly along the lines, were of more importance.

JEREMY MACLIN came back from a career-threatening ACL injury to have the best season of his career, catching 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. Now he's gone, headed for a reunion in Kansas City with the man who drafted him, Andy Reid, and Eagles fans want to know how in the hell this happened; how in the hell a supposedly smart guy like Chip Kelly could do something so insane like letting Maclin walk. It wasn't personal, and it certainly wasn't racial, as ESPN's Stephen A. Smith suggested yesterday, conveniently focusing on the color of Riley Cooper's skin and ignoring the color of the two wide receivers Kelly selected in the second and third rounds of the draft last year, Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff.

JEREMY MACLIN, the last major offensive weapon left over from the Andy Reid Eagles regime, will join his former coach in Kansas City when free agency starts tomorrow at 4 p.m., ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported last night. The news was unexpected, given that there hadn't been much buzz about Maclin previously during the NFL's "legal tampering" period leading up to free agency, and the few reports that had surfaced spoke of Maclin and the Eagles continuing to try to reach agreement.

The Eagles are expected to lose top wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and are keeping quarterback Mark Sanchez, two moves that could signal major changes to Chip Kelly's offense. A deal is in place for Maclin to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed. The signing would reunite Maclin with former Eagles coach Andy Reid, who drafted the wide receiver in Philadelphia. The Chiefs still need to clear salary-cap space, according to ESPN, which first reported the news. Sanchez is returning to the Eagles on a two-year contract that is worth $9 million and possibly $16 million if he hits certain incentives, a league source confirmed.

The Eagles still do not have a new deal for Jeremy Maclin or Brandon Graham, and the agents for both players are free to formally begin negotiating with other teams when the legal tampering window begins at noon on Saturday. Maclin and Graham are among the seven Eagles set to become unrestricted free agents Tuesday, when the new league year begins. Free agents can sign anywhere at that point, and a flurry of activity commences once the clock strikes 12 p.m. that afternoon. After a busy three-week period that included releasing veterans Trent Cole, Todd Herremans, Cary Williams, and James Casey - along with the blockbuster LeSean McCoy trade that will be processed Tuesday - the Eagles appear poised to be big spenders in free agency with around $49.5 million in salary cap space.

THE EAGLES announced a signing yesterday, but not the one fans of Jeremy Maclin were hoping would occur. Inside linebacker Brad Jones, released by the Packers last week, signed a 2-year contract with the Birds after visiting Tennessee over the weekend. Jones, who turns 29 next month, figures to provide depth and insurance as DeMeco Ryans rehabs from Achilles' surgery. "Whatever they ask me to do, I'm sure I'll be up to the task," Jones said on a conference call with reporters, which began just as the 4 p.m. deadline passed to place the franchise tag on Maclin.
