Jeremy Maclin Believes Eagles Will Be Just Fine Without DeSean Jackson


Chip said it himself: the offense is not built around one guy.

DeSean Jackson was released this offseason by the Philadelphia Eagles, but Jeremy Maclin doesn’t think that they will miss him much on offense.

“I think we’ll be fine, man. Obviously DeSean is one of the better playmakers in this league but we’re moving forward and I think we’ll be just fine,” Maclin said, via Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com. “I have faith in the offense and I have faith in the guys that we have in the locker room and on the football field. Chip said it himself: the offense is not built around one guy. We have multiple guys that go out there and make plays, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do this year.”

Jackson is one of the elite speedsters in the game and can stretch the field on offense. There will be an aspect that is missing on offense without him on the field, but the team has other outlets that they can go to in order to make plays happen. Darren Sproles will be a big factor for the team’s offense. Chip Kelly will find ways to get players in space and will find ways to get playmakers the football. The offense will still move down the field with or without Jackson.
