Eagles reportedly cut OG Mathis


The Sports Xchange

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly released Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis on Thursday.

The move was reported by NFL Media and USA Today, and Mathis seemed to confirm it when he tweeted, “Thanks for the memories Philly.”

Mathis, 33, had been absent from organized team activities as he sought an upgrade to his contract, which was due to pay him $5.5 million this year and $6 million next year.

Mathis, a third-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2005, had played the past four seasons in Philadelphia. He missed seven games last season with a sprained MCL but was still picked to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year.
