The Philadelphia Daily News wouldn't be shocked if LG Evan Mathis is a no-show when training camp opens.
It's a surprising take considering Mathis was present for both voluntary and mandatory workouts this offseason. It sounds like reporter Paul Domowitch is basing his skepticism on the history of agent Drew Rosenhaus. Mathis did ask for a new contract before the draft, but has little leverage as a 33-year-old player in the third year of a five-year, $25 million deal. Jul 2 - 11:47 AM

Speaking Thursday, Eagles LG Evan Mathis said his contract situation won't be a distraction this season.

"I’m here," Mathis said from voluntary workouts. "I’m not holding out. ... If I did ask for a new contract, I’m not going to tell (the media) I want a new contract." Mathis reportedly asked for a raise prior to the Combine, but sounds like he's mentally moved on from the idea. Going on 33 and signed through 2016, Mathis will make $5 million this season.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis will participate in this week's voluntary OTAs.

Mathis created a stir when he asked for a raise prior to the Combine. The Eagles responded by allowing their All-Pro to seek a trade, reportedly asking for a third-round pick in return. The buzz died down from there, and Mathis likely understands he has very little leverage at this point. He's going to have to play out the five-year, $25 million contract he signed in March of 2012.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects LG Evan Mathis to remain with the Eagles for this season.

Beat writer Jeff McLane thinks "that was much ado about nothing." Mathis wanted a raise and the Eagles responded by suggesting a trade, but there have been no whispers of anyone wanted to surrender a third-round pick for a 32-year-old. Given the public relations hit the Eagles are taking from fans on DeSean Jackson right now, it's hard to see them letting their All-Pro guard walk.

The Miami Herald considers the Dolphins a potential fit for Evan Mathis.

The Eagles have placed Mathis on the trade block after the All-Pro guard asked for a raise prior to the Combine. The Dolphins are a logical "connect the dots" kind of candidate because they have a desperate need at guard and former Eagles assistant Bill Lazor is now the offensive coordinator in Miami. The Herald is uncertain of the Dolphins' level of interest in Mathis, who will turn 33 in November.

According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Eagles are seeking a third-round pick for LG Evan Mathis.

Prior to the Combine, Mathis' reps went to the Eagles and asked for a new contract. The organization instead suggested they explore the trade market. Mathis has been among the game's best guards for three straight years, but isn't a scheme fit everywhere due to his size and will turn 33 in November. If the Eagles do end up finding a trade partner, they'd likely plug in Allen Barbre at left guard.

The Eagles have placed LG Evan Mathis on the trade block.

The story has been reported by both NFL Network and the Philly Inquirer. Both outlets report Mathis wants a raise on his scheduled $5 million salary. Mathis was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2013 and has been one of the best guards in football the past three seasons. Mathis saw LT Jason Peters and C Jason Kelce get extensions earlier this offseason, and apparently felt snubbed when his contract wasn't addressed. Mathis is entering his age-33 season.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis called his ankle surgery "a good thing."

Mathis will miss the rest of the spring workouts, but expects to be fine for training camp. The surgery was a simple cleanout. Mathis has missed just one game over the last two seasons and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 guard in 2012.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis is likely out until training camp after undergoing ankle surgery.

The surgery is described as "minor," and was done to address "swelling and discomfort" in Mathis' ankle. Former first-round bust Danny Watkins is expected to see first-team reps at OTAs opposite RG Todd Herremans. Injuries sapped the life from the Eagles' offensive line last season, with Mathis as the lone healthy member. They'll hope he returns 100 percent for the start of camp.

Beat writer Rueben Frank calls LG Evan Mathis the Eagles' offensive MVP from 2012.

Mathis turned out to be one of the few free-agent signings the Eagles have gotten right recently. Re-signed to a five-year, $25 million deal last March, he started every game in 2012 and graded out as the best guard in the NFL. Mathis is a lock to get his $1 million roster bonus on March 24.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis may no longer require offseason ankle surgery.

Mathis was expected to have bone chips removed in a routine procedure, but has decided to wait a little longer before deciding. Mathis graded out as the best guard in the league by a wide margin in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis will require offseason ankle surgery.

The routine surgery will remove bone chips from Mathis' ankle, and is considered "nothing serious." Mathis, the Eagles' lone starting offensive lineman who stayed remotely healthy in 2012, wound up grading out as a top-three guard by Pro Football Focus. Mathis' left guard job will be very safe in 2013 on a $2 million salary. He'll also collect a $1 million roster bonus.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis injured his ankle in Thursday night's game against the Bengals and is doubtful to return.

Mathis initially hurt the ankle early in the second half and got a re-tape before returning, but with the Eagles down big late in the game, they likely won't push him back out there. Danny Watkins will finish the contest at left guard.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis is dealing with vertigo, sources tell the Wilmington New Journal.

Mathis has been out of practice since Wednesday. The problem started with an ear infection and then progressed to dizziness and balance issues. He's tentatively expected to be "on the tail end" of the issue and should be back at practice soon. Dallas Reynolds has been picking up first-team reps at left guard.

Eagles re-signed LG Evan Mathis to a five-year, $25 million contract.

The deal includes $7 million guaranteed. Mathis was drawing strong interest on the open market after Carl Nicks and Ben Grubbs got scooped up early, but will return to where he played under a one-year deal in 2011. Signed as a backup last summer, Mathis ended up thriving in OL coach Howard Mudd's system, and graded out as the league's No. 1 guard by Pro Football Focus. The Eagles re-signed RT Todd Herremans to a three-year, $21 million deal earlier in the week. Every member of the Eagles' offensive line is now signed through at least 2014.
