Broncos sign Evan Mathis

I wanted the Saints to sign him!

Peyton Manningís protection just got a lot better.

Free agent guard Evan Mathis has signed with the Broncos. Itís a one-year deal worth $4 million if he meets playing-time incentives.

Thatís less money than Mathis was slated to make this season before he was cut by the Eagles, but a league source tells PFT that Mathis didnít choose the Broncos for the money: Another team offered him $5.5 million but he turned it down because he wants to win a ring and thinks playing for the Broncos gives him a good chance to do that.

So after missing training camp and half of the preseason, Mathis will now try to get up to speed quickly, and to provide a big boost to the line in Denver.

Interesting move by Mathis. It appears Denver is going all in this year.

O line is a big question mark for Indy.

Re: Broncos sign Evan Mathis

that's a pretty good price, and a smart incentive-based deal
I guess Mathis finally came to his senses and realized his true value

Turning down 1.5M...If it was the Raiders he would not be the first.
