The Facts: We already knew Maclin was surprised by how the Chiefs told him he was being released (via voicemail). The veteran WR also told ESPN's Adam Schefter that he played most of last season with a torn groin.
Diehards Line: Maclin missed four games last season with the injury and he said he never really got back to 100 percent when he returned. "So I missed about four weeks there with the torn groin and you know I came back and I was able to play but I can't sit up here and tell you I was a hundred percent," he said of his injury. "But I'm also not going to sit up here and make excuses so you know at the end of the day I didn't play as well as I could of last year. I think that's ultimately what happened." Maclin finished last season with career worsts in receptions (44), yards (536) and touchdowns (2). The Chiefs decided earlier this month to release him. Although he was "shocked" by his release, Maclin said the manner in how it happened helped him to move on from the situation quickly. Maclin signed a two-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last week.
