The Philadelphia Eagles head office have been busy boys this week.

The Eagles had three wide receivers headed for free agency this off-season, and they have already penned new contracts with two of them.

Riley Cooper was the first to get a new contract. The 26-year old emerged from a racism storm at the start of the season, to finish the year posting career numbers and was rewarded with a five-year, $25 million dollar deal.

Now it is Jeremy Maclin's turn to re-sign and stay in the city of brotherly love.

The veteran wide receiver has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, and agreed to terms on a new one-year contract that was announced on Friday afternoon.

"Jeremy is an ideal player for our scheme with his combination of size, speed, strength and route-running ability, in addition to his dynamic playmaking talent," general manager Howie Roseman said. "We're happy to see him rehabbing well and to get him under contract for the 2014 season."

Maclin missed the 2013 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training camp practice. Maclin tore the same ligament four years earlier, during his college career at Missouri.
