1. Chiefs make Jeremy Maclin signing official

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"Back when Reid was in charge of the Eagles, he drafted Maclin in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft — one of only two the Eagles took at the position that early, along with Freddie Mitchell, during his entire 14-year tenure in Philadelphia — and coached Maclin for four years before he was fired in 2012.

"I'm reunited with coach Reid and some of the guys that were on staff in Philadelphia, which is something I never dreamed that could have happened," Maclin said. "The fact that I'm in this situation is pretty awesome.""    READ MORE…

2. GM John Dorsey: Chiefs weren't desperate for a wide receiver

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"That's why Maclin makes plenty of sense for the Chiefs, even discounting his big 2014 season for the Eagles when he caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Those 10 touchdowns were 10 more TD catches than the Chiefs' wide receivers combined for last year. Maclin indicated he was aware the Chiefs were held scoreless from their wide outs.

"You hear about it on ESPN," he said. "There was a lot of fluke stuff that happened, receivers fumbling on the 1-yard line or getting tripped up and stuff like that. There's a lot of stuff that goes into it. Hopefully I can score at least one next year.""    READ MORE…

By James Walker - ESPN

""Today's going to be a great day, and there's many more to come after that," Suh said Wednesday.

Suh arrived in Miami on Wednesday morning to put the finishing touches on the contract, which was first reported by ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen on Sunday.

"I'm excited about the pressure. I don't necessarily look at it as pressure. I'm looking at it as doing something I'm built for," Suh said, when asked about the pressure that comes with such a massive contract."    READ MORE…

By Pete Sweeney - KCChiefs.com

"The last time new Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin stood at a podium as a member of a football team located in the state of Missouri, he was much younger, and the news he needed to share moved him to tears.

"This decision hasn't been easy for me," the 20-year old said as he tried to keep his composure. "I've seen a lot, I've battled through a lot with these guys on the team.

"I don't regret it. [Missouri has] been the best experience of my life so far. I'm saying it right now—I'm entering the 2009 draft.""    READ MORE…

5. WR Eddie Royal signs with Bears

By Michael C. Wright - ESPN

"Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace said the team would address the receiver position in free agency on Wednesday, and hours later, the club signed former San Diego Chargers receiver Eddie Royal on a three-year contract.

Former Charges receiver Eddie Royal has agreed to a 3-year deal with the Bears, according to a source.

Financial terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed.

Royal put together his most productive season in three years with the Chargers in 2014, playing a full, 16-game season for the first time since 2010. Royal played in 722 snaps, finishing with a team-high 22 catches on third down."    READ MORE…
