It has been a busy 72 hours for the Philadelphia Eagles. Over the past three days, the Eagles have re-signed Jason Peters, Riley Cooper and Jason Kelce to new deals, now you can add wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to that list. 

Maclin and Philadelphia have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, the team announced Friday. Although Maclin apparently wanted a long-term deal, the Eagles wanted to get him signed to a one year "prove-it" deal where Maclin could fully show that he was recovered from an ACL tear that he suffered during the preseason

The one-year deal is worth a maximum of $6 million, with Maclin making $3 million in guaranteed money, according to FoxSports.com

Since Maclin got injured in the preseason, he still hasn't got a chance to play a regular season game in Chip Kelly's offense.

"I'm excited to see Jeremy play in our offense," Kelly said in a statement. "You saw the potential of that in the spring and summer, but obviously he didn't get an opportunity last year. However, what was great to see was how he was literally here every single day since being injured."

Maclin has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, the 25-year-old was the 19th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.  

The Maclin deal marks the third day in a row that the Eagles have re-signed one of their own. Peters was signed to a five-year, $53 million deal on Wednesday. That was followed up on Thursday by Cooper's five-year deal and Kelce's seven-year deal
