The Buffalo Bills brought receiver Jeremy Maclin in for a free-agent visit this week, and the meetings spilled into a second day as Maclin remained at the team’s facility Wednesday after arriving Tuesday.
Maclin did leave the premises without a deal, however, and head coach Sean McDermott was not willing to divulge the details of their conversations on Thursday.
“We had a nice visit … Jeremy is a very good person and football player. I’ll keep the rest between us and Jeremy,” McDermott said.
While the Bills, like the rest of the NFL, were surprised a No. 1 receiver became available after he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, McDermott cautioned against making hasty decisions.
“No knee-jerk reactions. Those are not healthy,” he said, according to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News.
McDermott also acknowledged the roles of running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Tyrod Taylor in Maclin’s recruitment. McCoy and Maclin played together previously on the Philadelphia Eagles. He said he appreciated their input.
“They have a voice, but we have to do what’s in (the team’s) best interest,” he said, per Sal Capaccio of WGR 550.
Maclin continued with his free-agent tour, leaving for the Baltimore Ravens‘ facilities on Wednesday.
