PHILADELPHIA -- Jeremy Maclin gets a second chance to play in Chip Kellys offence. Dimitri Payet France Jersey . Maclin and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on a one-year contract, preventing the wide receiver from becoming a free agent next month. Maclin missed the entire 2013 season after tearing his right ACL in training camp. "Im excited to play in Chips offence, Im excited to be able to help this team get to the next level," Maclin said after the deal was announced Friday. "This is a place I can showcase my skills. Im comfortable with my teammates and this is the right spot for me." Maclin said the team offered him a five-year contract, but the two sides couldnt agree on terms. "This is the place I wanted to be," he said. "This is where I was most interested in what was going on. By them offering me a long-term deal, that made me comfortable that I was in their long-term plans." The former first-round pick led the team with 69 receptions for 857 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. Hes one of eight receivers to in NFL history to have at least 55 catches and 750 yards in each of his first four seasons in the league. "Im excited to see Jeremy play in our offence," Kelly said. "You saw the potential of that in the spring and summer but obviously he didnt get an opportunity last year. However, what was great to see was how he was literally here every single day since being injured. You can see he has a passion for the game of football. When he was on the field last spring and summer, you saw his intelligence, you saw his great route-running ability and you saw how tough of a one-on-one match-up he could be." The NFC East champion Eagles had a busy week before signing Maclin on Friday. They gave new deals to wide receiver Riley Cooper and centre Jason Kelce on Thursday and extended All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters contract Wednesday. "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. "Were happy to see him rehabbing well and to get him under contract for the 2014 season." Yohan Cabaye Jersey .

Anaheim Ducks Reassign D Colby Robak to Norfolk Admirals (AHL). - Team Website D Eric Brewer (foot) removed from injured reserve.LAKE FOREST, Ill. - After his defence allowed more than 50 points for the second consecutive game, Chicago Bears co-ordinator Mel Tucker says the pressure he feels comes from some place other than disgruntled fans.I dont feel any pressure other than what I put on myself, and thats a lot of pressure, Tucker said.Tuckers defence has dropped to 26th in the league and 28th against the pass heading into Sundays home game against Minnesota. Last Sundays 55-14 blowout loss in Green Bay came on the heels of a 51-23 loss at New England, making the Bears the first team to allow 50 points or more back to back since the 1923 Rochester Jeffersons.The struggles of quarterback Jay Cutler and the offence are often the focus of critics in Chicago. But a defence that used to be the backbone of the franchise is bordering on laughingstock status. Coach Marc Trestman said this week he is planning no staff changes, and Tucker said hes not receiving specific pressure from his boss.I just feel pressure to coach the best that I can, he said. Thats the pressure I put on myself. Ive never been anywhere where there wasnt pressure to win and there wasnt pressure to play well.The Bears have been outscored in the first half of the last three games 94-7, including 42-0 Sunday that was a franchise record for points allowed in a half.Obviously we were not prepared enough and our effort and everything we do needs to be better, Tucker said. There is nothing that was good enough and regardless if we thought we were ready going into the game, obviously we need to make sure we are even more ready going into this next game.Chicagos defence finished 30th in the league and last against the run in 2013 under Tucker, but Trestman stood behind him. Tucker is now in his second year as defensive co-ordinator after doing the same job for four years in Jacksonville.Players are defending Tucker.I do believe in the system, veteran Bears linebacker Lance Briggs said. And I believe in the guys that are in that (locker) room, that we all have in the roomm. Blaise Matuidi France Jersey. And when I say those guys, it means my teammates and my coaches.Briggs admitted the confidence level of the team could be better, although he said it doesnt have to stay that way.The confidence level? Shoot. Ive never been in a situation like this and the last year, he said. As tough as it is, today is definitely better than yesterday and you could say the same about the day before. And really, at this point, its every one day at a time and its one play at a time. And its one practice at a time.Players acknowledge hearing the criticism about their coaches and the team, but try to forget it.It would be the most stressful life in the world, defensive end Jared Allen said. Goodness, wed be king one day, wed be dead the next. We have to focus on what we know and we know football.Even family members are catching heat these days. Trestman said his two daughters have become targets for what he calls Twitter terrorists.No. 1, thats a personal issue, he said. Thats a family issue and well work through that. The thing that that brings up is that theres another side of the coin and theres a lot of support out there for my family and for what were going through during this adversity. I try to find the glass loaded up with good things, too.After starting the season with high expectations, the team is wondering what kind of reception they will get Sunday in their first home game since Oct. 19. Chicago (3-6) is at the bottom of the NFC North, one game behind the Vikings (4-5).I understand the impatience from the fans, Briggs said. Obviously this city deserves better. We deserve better. We deserve better for ourselves.Notes: Tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs), cornerback Tim Jennings (knee), wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) and tackle Jordan Mills (ribs) all missed Wednesdays practice. ...
