Philadelphia Eagles: Evan Mathis trade rumors

Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles just cannot seem to stay out of the headlines this offseason. And for good reason too. After decisions that got rid of key contributors and fan favorites on the team like McCoy and Foles, you would think that he would lay low and stay out of the news until draft day. But that’s just not the case and should not be expected of an unforeseeable...

Full Philadelphia Eagles 7-Round Mock Draft – 1.0

Some of the biggest concern’s of the offseason still remain unchecked for the Eagles. For example, a starter is still needed beside Malcolm Jenkins, a starting caliber wide receiver is still needed to replace Jeremy Maclin, and depth still needs to be added to an aging offensive line.

It’s somewhat rare for Eagles owner Jeff Lurie (aka rich Uncle Giggles from The Flintstones) to come out and speak so frankly about his team and his unabashed intention to roll the dice for a boom-or-bust season.

Trying to figure out why Eagles are selling Evan Mathis…

The Philadelphia Eagles are blatantly hanging a “For Sale” sign on Pro Bowl left guard Evan Mathis. On the surface it looks like a maneuver to save some cap space and pick up an extra 5th or 6th round draft pick in the bargain. It may also be a tactic by the team to induce Mathis into restructuring his current contract. At age 33 the Alabama alumnus can still play at a high...
