Broncos LG Evan Mathis (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6 against the Browns.

Mathis has played through the injury the last two games, but he was not able to practice at all this week. "There's some concern," said Broncos coach Gary Kubiak. "The hamstring has been an issue now for about three weeks. He's trying to play through it. It will be a game-time decision." With LT Ty Sambrailo again out with a shoulder injury, Denver cannot afford to be without Mathis as well.

New Broncos LG Evan Mathis is confident he'll be ready for Week 1.

"I'm in shape," the 33-year-old Mathis said. "I'll have to get used to the altitude there." Mathis has 19 days to get conditioned for Week 1, a quick turnaround for someone who hasn't taken part in any officially-sanctioned practices this summer. Mathis missed seven games last season with a sprained MCL, but was one of the league's best guards upon his return.

Broncos signed OG Evan Mathis to a one-year contract.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the deal is worth "up to" $4 million if Mathis hits certain playing-time incentives. It has a $2.5 million base. The biggest difference maker left on the open market at any position, Mathis graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 guard in 2014. Mathis goes a long way toward solidifying a line that's been racked by injuries and question marks this summer. Mathis will send LG Max Garcia to the bench, and line up alongside LT Ty Sambrailo, C Matt Paradis, RG Louis Vasquez and RT Chris Clark. It's still a much sorrier group than Peyton Manning had gotten used to working with in Denver.

Drew Rosenhaus said free agent G Evan Mathis will pick his new team this week.

Mathis left his Saturday meeting with the Seahawks without a contract, but reports suggest Seattle remains an option. The Dolphins, Titans and Chiefs have also been mentioned as possibilities. If Mathis does pick a team this week, it will likely be for less than the $5.5 million he has reportedly been seeking.

Free agent G Evan Mathis had a "good visit" with the Seahawks on Saturday but left without a contract.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo said the Seahawks "remain an option" for Mathis, though no deal is imminent. The Dolphins and Jets have both put out feelers for Mathis but are unwilling to meet his high salary demands. We'd expect Mathis to lower his asking price as the regular season draws closer.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky said the Titans are "monitoring" free agent G Evan Mathis.

Mathis is expected to meet with the Seahawks on Saturday, but he has said several teams are interested. Mathis reportedly wants to play for a contender, which would likely rule Tennessee out. Tennessee has the cap room to make a big offer, however, and could have a need a guard after demoting Andy Levitre. The Chiefs are also rumored to be interested.

The Seahawks are scheduled to host free agent OG Evan Mathis on Saturday.

After losing James Carpenter in free agency and trading Max Unger, Seattle isn't satisfied with its current front five. Mathis is an athletic and sometimes-nasty run blocker who would likely take over immediately at left guard, upgrading the interior in a major way. Mathis is reportedly interested in playing for a contender. The Seahawks have gone to back-to-back Super Bowls, winning one and losing the other on the very last play.

Free agent OG Evan Mathis is close to signing with a team.

Mathis has been on the open market since June due to his high contract demands. He’ll likely have to settle for less than the $5.5 million he was scheduled to make from the Eagles. The Dolphins are reportedly offering Mathis a deal in the range of $2 million annually.
Aug 12 - 6:50 PM

The Miami Herald says the Dolphins are inclined to pay free agent G Evan Mathis less than half of the $5.5 million he is seeking.

Mathis complained about his contract in Philly, requesting a new deal or trade. It resulted in him getting released two months ago and he remains on the street. Now Mathis and agent Drew Rosenhaus are just hoping they can recoup the $5.5 million they were scheduled to get from the Eagles.
Aug 10 - 9:05 AM

The Miami Herald reports "dialogue remains ongoing" between the Dolphins and free agent OG Evan Mathis.

The Dolphins have a trainwreck situation at guard, but are waiting for Mathis' price to come down. The Herald reports Mathis is seeking in the range of the $5.5 million he was schedule to make in Philadelphia. Although the Dolphins have a wretched cap situation for 2016, they have the funds to pay Mathis for 2015 if they get desperate enough.
Aug 6 - 2:16 PM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said the team has had talks with free agent G Evan Mathis' agent.

It is unclear what "talks" mean, but it does not sound like anything is imminent. Mathis has likely priced himself out of the market, meaning he will need to either drop the asking price or find a team more desperate for guard help than the Jets and Dolphins. The latter seems unlikely.
Aug 1 - 1:55 PM

The Dolphins have not pursued free agent OG Evan Mathis recently.

The Fins were known to have interest in Mathis earlier on, but it's possible Mathis is pricing himself out of teams' range, or there simply isn't a ton of league-wide interest in him. He's warranted two Rotoworld blurbs over the last month. We usually blurb free agents aggressively (annoyingly?) when they're in high NFL demand. Mathis did miss seven games last year and turns 34 in November.
Jul 29 - 10:52 PM

Free agent OG Evan Mathis expects to begin serious contract talks with teams "in a week or two."

Mathis expects negotiations with potential suitors to "ramp up" as training camp approaches. "Exactly what my options are aren’t as clear as they will be in a week or two," Mathis said. The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "at least some degree of interest" in Mathis, but most NFL decision makers are currently on vacation. Training camps open in a week and a half.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Rams are not interested in free agent LG Evan Mathis.

Per Cole, the Rams "prefer to let [their] young players grow together." While we doubt Mathis would even choose the Rams, it's baffling St. Louis is serious about heading into the season with its current offensive line of LT Greg Robinson, LG Jamon Brown, C Tim Barnes, RG Rodger Saffold, and RT Rob Havenstein.
