  • La Canfora mentions that the Eagles have given Mathis’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, permission to seek a trade.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Eagles are working to trade veteran G Evan Mathis.

Mathis, 33, still has another two years remaining on his five-year, $25 million contract that included $7 million guaranteed. He stands to make another $5.5 million in 2015 and another $6 million in 2016.

Trade him for Dion Jordan please.


No. I’d rather have a 3rd rounder(if not a 2nd. He is a Pro-bowl OL after all). DJ=bust


Got a better idea. Trade him and a 3rd for Eric berry. Please sir.
