Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Eagles have made it known that they’re willing to trade RB Ryan Mathews for the right price.
Previous reports have said that they are also looking to trade RB DeMarco Murray, so it’s clear that Philadelphia is open for business.
Mathews, 28, is in the second year of his three-year, $11 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2016 season.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Mathews would free up $2 million in available cap space while creating $2 million in dead money.
In 2015, Mathews appeared in 13 games and ran for 539 yards on 107 carries (5 YPC) to go along with 20 receptions for 146 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 47 running back out of 69 qualifying players.
