Report: Eagles Could Release Evan Mathis
The Eagles could soon be in the market for two new starting guards.
According to USA Today's NFL reporter Jim Corbett, Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Mathis is "looking for a team fit" for Mathis at the NFL owners' meetings.
Trading Mathis would save the Eagles $6.5 million on the cap
While the rumors of moving Mathis are nothing new, according to CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher the Eagles may release Mathis if Rosenhaus can't find a trade partner for his client.

If the Eagles move Mathis they could use Allen Barbre at one of the guard spots, and most likely fill the other spot with a middle-tier free agent or via the draft.
Mathis has two years left on his five-year, $25 million contract he signed in 2012, but has out preformed his deal and has been looking for more money to match his production. The left guard has been of the top guards in football the past few season, but missed seven games in 2014 with a sprained ankle.
