Re: Eagles may cut Evan Mathis

in a heart beat. so much for my eagles trade idea

he probably wont be as much as people would think. up there in age but has just a few years of starting time in

The 33-year-old Mathis is still a good player, but his cap hits of $6.5 million this year and $7 million this year appear to be more than Kelly is willing to devote to any guard, even one of the best in the NFL. The flip side is, Mathis has indicated that he thinks heís underpaid and would like a new contract. So the two sides are clearly far apart in their perceptions of Mathisís worth.

perfect time to cut him loose and see how tight money is. then swoop in. if he signs else were lets see what player that other team cuts loose.

Re: Eagles may cut Evan Mathis

yikes, that's a lot for a guard at his age, not his current salary per se, but a new contract with MORE money...

I know the name but not much on his play lately. Anyone know if he still has some gas left in the tank. I do mean farts of course

Re: Eagles may cut Evan Mathis

If they cut him they only owe him 2 million, so he'd be looking for 4 or 5 elsewhere.
I was hoping Philly was on the hook for more and we could look at him in the 3 million range.
