Jeremy Maclin gets better of Darrelle Revis, but tweaks hamstring
Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin has had a solid couple days of practice.
All offseason long, we've had to listen to various players brag about how they're the best cornerback in the game. Patrick Peterson has said it. So has Richard Sherman and DeAngelo Hall and Brandon Flowers and probably scores more I'm forgetting.
Revis was whistled for three holding penalties against Maclin on Tuesday and Maclin beat him for a touchdown, and on Wednesday, this happened.
Jeremy Maclin continues to toast Darrelle Revis in 1 on 1s. Looked right at us after beating him as if to say, "You reporters catch that?"— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 13, 2014
Of course, that begs the question: does Revis care? After all, it's still in the middle of the preseason, and one man's success during practice won't mean much of anything once the regular season begins.
Should point out: I am not under the impression that Darrelle Revis is giving anywhere near 100 pct in these drills. Has little to prove.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 13, 2014
Maclin is coming off an ACL tear, so the news of his success from the joint practices likely means more to the Eagles.
But Maclin also came off the field during practice Wednesday, because it was raining and the fields were wet. He held an ice pack on his knee, and he told reporters he left practice because of his hamstring.
