KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After nine seasons in the NFL, former Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is retiring from the league.

“Something that I want to share with everybody is that I’m retiring from the NFL. I’m done,” said the 30-year-old at his wife’s baby shower on Sunday.

Maclin was drafted 19th overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 where he played his first five season. He signed a five-year contract in free agency with the Chiefs in 2015, playing with the team for two seasons.

The receiver was picked up by the Ravens in 2017 and was cut in March 2018 -- going through last season unsigned.

Maclin finished his career with 514 receptions for 6,835 yards and 49 touchdowns in eight seasons.
