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.

The Dolphins are among the teams interested in free agent LG Evan Mathis.

With limited 2016 cap space, the Dolphins can’t afford to get in a bidding war for Mathis, but are monitoring his situation. Mathis is seeking a deal in excess of $5.5 million annually.
Jun 20 - 4:40 PM

In a radio interview, agent Drew Rosenhaus said, "There are 10 teams that have expressed bona fide interest in signing [free agent G Evan Mathis]."

"I can tell you that this deal will happen at any time or it may still take between now and training camp to get it done," Rosenhaus continued. "There are several teams that are in the mix right now, and we don't want to discourage anybody from pursuing it." Rosenhaus can spin whichever yarn he prefers, but these sound like the comments of an agent trying to drum up interest for his client. Though Mathis has been one of the top guards in the league the last several seasons, teams are likely hesitant to give a 33-year-old guard the kind of long-term money Mathis is seeking. Mathis was scheduled to make $5.5 million with the Eagles this season.
Jun 20 - 10:55 AM

Chip Kelly said Evan Mathis asked to be released by the Eagles.

Speaking at a Tuesday press conference, Kelly tried to turn the narrative away from the Eagles cutting an All-Pro caliber player at their thinnest position. Of course, he failed to mention that Mathis -- although disgruntled -- was planning on showing up to this week's mandatory minicamp. The Eagles could have simply forced him to play out his $5.5 million contract for this season. Instead, they're going to be starting Allen Barbre at left guard and one of Matt Tobin, Andrew Gardner and Dennis Kelly at right guard. Mathis' desire to be cut suggests he expects to land more than $5.5M on the open market.
Jun 16 - 11:10 AM

Free agent LG Evan Mathis has received interest from "at least half a dozen" teams, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

"It's wide open and there's a lot of interest," Rosenhaus added. "The contract has been an issue, so that's a factor. We won't necessarily rush into signing immediately." Mathis was seeking an extension that would pay him top-five guard money prior to his release. The Dolphins, Patriots, and Rams have been previously linked to Mathis, while the Bills are reportedly doing their due diligence. 33-year-old Mathis was PFF’s second-overall guard last season.

Eagles released LG Evan Mathis.

This has been a long time coming for Mathis, who wore out his welcome under my-way-or-the-highway coach Chip Kelly. Mathis skipped voluntary workouts the past couple seasons in hopes of a trade or raise from the Eagles. Due a $5.5 million salary in 2015, Mathis wanted more entering his age-34 season. Now hitting the market at this stage of the year, Mathis would do well to make 75 percent of that. The Dolphins, Patriots, and Rams all reportedly expressed some level of interest in Mathis in recent months. When on the field, Mathis is still one of the best guards in the league.
Jun 11 - 4:00 PM

The Eagles have pulled off the table an offer to LG Evan Mathis that would have increased his base salary by $1 million per year.

Mathis is due $5.5 million this year and $6 million in 2016. The offer was originally made by former GM Howie Roseman, but yanked when Chip Kelly took over personnel decisions. Currently the NFL's 12th or 13th highest-paid guard, Mathis wants to be compensated like a top-five player at his position. Kelly said Tuesday that he has not spoken to Mathis this offseason.
Jun 9 - 11:39 PM

In a radio interview, ESPN insider Adam Caplan said he expects Eagles LG Evan Mathis to be moved before the start of the season.

"I’ve been asked repeatedly about his future," Caplan said, "and I would say I would be pessimistic, clearly, for him to be on the (Eagles) this fall." The Eagles gave Mathis permission to search out a trade partner last offseason, but to this point he has yet to find any takers. It seems unlikely the 33-year-old guard suddenly finds a team willing to both trade for him and pony up the extra money he is seeking, but a guard-needy team like the Dolphins could be willing to take a shot. Mathis is owed $11.5 million over the final two years of his deal.
Jun 6 - 11:02 AM

Eagles LG Evan Mathis' agent Drew Rosenhaus said the Dolphins are not a "strong possibility" for the disgruntled guard.

"I’ve been given permission by the Eagles to shop Evans," Rosenhaus said in a radio interview. "We thought we had a trade with another team leading up to the Draft. It was not the Dolphins." Coach Chip Kelly has said Mathis has been available to trade for two offseasons, but to this point Rosenhaus has yet to find a partner. Mathis is not happy, but he will likely remain an Eagle for at least one more season.

May 30 - 12:38 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane believes the Eagles giving LG Evan Mathis a new contract is "unlikely to ever happen."

Mathis, of course, is skipping OTAs once again as he hopes to get some money out of the Eagles in the form of incentives. It's a lost cause. Coach Chip Kelly doesn't seem to highly value the 33-year-old and is content with letting him play out his current deal. Mathis' holdout is unlikely to last through minicamp.
May 29 - 8:46 AM

Eagles LG Evan Mathis is skipping OTAs.

Mathis is the sort of veteran player who is often excused from "voluntary" OTAs, but it's still notable considering his contract situation. Nevertheless, we'd be surprised if Mathis skipped next month's minicamp.
May 26 - 1:38 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer does not expect Evan Mathis to be traded or released now.

With the draft behind us, Mathis' window for a trade is closed. Since he has no leverage, he's going to have to (unhappily) play out his contract, which is set to pay him $5.5 million. It's great news for the Eagles, as Mathis is one of the best guards in the game. Their offensive line is aging but will be strong again with LT Jason Peters, LG Mathis, C Jason Kelce, RG Allen Barbre and RT Lane Johnson.
May 4 - 9:20 AM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed LG Evan Mathis has been on the trade block for two seasons.

"Evan Mathis has been available for trade for two years," Kelly said, "and there have been no offers." Unhappy with his contract situation, Mathis is available for trade by his own request. The Eagles have given him the freedom to pursue a trade and new contract, but as of now Mathis has not found any takers. With the draft all but over, Mathis will likely remain with the Eagles in 2015. He is scheduled to make $5.5 million this season.
May 2 - 4:52 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins have expressed no interest in trading for Eagles LG Evan Mathis.

Miami is the club linked to Mathis most, but figures it may as well wait until the Eagles release the 34-year-old. The Dolphins desperately need guard help but are short on draft picks after trading their third-rounder to the Saints for WR Kenny Stills. Mathis has been a no-show at voluntary workouts.
May 1 - 10:07 AM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Eagles LG Evan Mathis recently came up in trade talks with the Dolphins.

Per reporter Jeff McLane, Mathis' name was "discussed." It's the second time in two months Mathis has been connected to the Dolphins, but it doesn't appear a trade is imminent. Mathis is skipping voluntary workouts as Chip Kelly decides his future. Mathis' release remains a possibility.
