Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin Can Change Everything

In a move that surprised many, Kansas City Chiefs General Manager, went hunting for big game at the onset of free agency. In signing Pro Bowl Wide Receiver, Jeremy Maclin, KC has that down the field threat that cold yield big returns for KC’s offense in 2015.

Though Chiefs fan wanted it to happen, a reunion between Wide Receiver, Jeremy Maclin, and Head Coach Andy Reid, much had to take place for fans to do the happy dance. In other words, they asked the question would the Chiefs spend the bucks to get a premier offensive threat.

However, General Manager, John Dorsey, was very aggressive giving the standout wide receiver a five-year, $55 million contract. By shedding the image, the Chiefs would not spend big in free agency, Kansas City landed arguably their biggest free agent catch in decades.

Maclin should for the passing game what Running Back, Jamaal Charles, does for the Chiefs running game. Both are capable of scoring anytime they have the ball in their hands.

Though the Chiefs have struggled at the wide receiver position in each of the last two seasons, Maclin can change any perception this offense can’t become a consistent vertical force in the AFC.

If the first day of training camp meant anything to Maclin, and his Quarterback, Alex Smith, the two appear ready to share a connection that finally opens KC’s offense.

On the field, Maclin is a bulldog when the ball is in the air. On the sidelines, he’s a teacher to the younger receivers trying to make a similar impact in KC’s passing game.

Either way you look at Maclin, he’s going to be anointed from Chiefs fans as the savior to KC’s passing woes of the past. Granted that’s unfair but Maclin doesn’t appear to be fazed by the pressure. Photos: Courtesy Warpaint Illustrated and Mark J. Rebllas USA Today Sports
