Maclin said Monday, via CSN Philly, that he "definitely" wants to return because his "heart is in Philly."
Coming off training-camp ACL surgery, Maclin acknowledged that he might have to accept a one-year contract to rebuild his value.
"I'm a realist, so I understand that's a possibility," Maclin said, per Philadelphia Magazine.
Asked if he would consider giving the Eagles a hometown discount, Maclin replied, "Money isn't everything. I just have to see what's best for me, look at the numbers, look at the personnel and I think we'll make our decision based on that."
Maclin said late last week that he's ahead of schedule in his knee rehab and expects to be ready for spring workouts.
After catching just eight passes for 93 yards and one touchdown from Michael Vick in the first five games of the season, Cooper racked up 45 receptions for 812 yards and eight touchdowns in the final eight games.
Cooper might draw interest from other teams on the heels of a breakout season, but his best career move is to re-sign with the Eagles.
