Veteran wide receiver Jeremy Maclin called it a career Sunday, announcing his retirement from the NFL after nine seasons.

A first-round pick in the 2009 draft, Maclin was quick to emerge as a top playmaker for a high-flying Philadelphia Eagles offense. He spent six seasons with the Eagles, racking up 4,771 receiving yards and 36 touchdowns before landing a lucrative free-agent deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015.

Maclin continued to produce at a high level in his first year with the Chiefs, but he'd last just one more season in Kansas City. He then caught on with the Baltimore Ravens for one season before sitting out the 2018 campaign.

The 30-year-old wraps up his NFL career having appeared in 114 games, recording 514 catches for 6,835 yards and 49 touchdowns.
