Eagles HC Chip Kelly told reporters on Saturday that veteran G Evan Mathis has been available for trade for two years now. However, they’ve yet to receive any offers for him.
“Evan Mathis has been available for trade for two years and there have been no offers,” Kelly said, per Dave Weinberg.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Lions had “some interest” in Mathis before they took Laken Tomlinson in round one.
Many have speculated that the Dolphins could be an option, given that they could use help at guard, but Miami reportedly is not interested in a deal.
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.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Maths would free up $4.5 million in available cap space while creating $2 million in dead money.
Last year, Mathis appeared in nine games for the Eagles after he dealt with an MCL injury. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 guard out of 78 qualifying players.
