Eagles release Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis

NFC East Update

The Philadelphia Eagles made offensive guard Evan Mathis the most sought after free agent after his release today. Mathis who was scheduled to make $5.5 million with the Eagles in 2015 was a no show at Eagles OTAs because of a contact dispute the last 2 seasons with management. Mathis will be an upgrade to most offensive lines as he is still a productive guard but will probably not fetch close to the $5.5 million he was scheduled to make. Now the Eagles will look to replace Mathis who was rated by Pro Football Focus as the best rated offensive guard from 2011-2013 to help protect injury riddled quarterback Sam Bradford. This is yet another quality player head coach and personnel Czar Chip Kelly has shown the door, 2015 will be a pivotal season for Kelly and the Eagles organization as a whole.
