Shortly before being announced as the newest Chief, Maclin took to his Twitter account to thank the Eagles organization.
I want to start off by thanking Mr. Lurie for giving me the opportunity to live out my childhood dream of playing in the NFL!
I also want to thank the Eagles organization and coaching staff for their love and support throughout my 6 years in Philadelphia!
To the fans, thank you all for the passion and support you had for myself and my teammates.
Finally I want to thank my teammates I had the privilege to play with during my 6 years in Philadelphia. Forming a bond with a special group of men is something nobody can take from you. Blood couldn't make us any closer. I will forever and always cherish the memories and moments I shared in Philadelphia. Philadelphia will always hold a special place in my heart!
Thank you Philly!
