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.
There will be a letter and video to follow soon in the near future. It is true I am retiring from the NFL! Stay tuned for how/why I came to this decision. Much love everyone!— Jeremy Maclin (@jmac___19) March 24, 2019
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.
