Late last night Philly.com's Paul Domowitch reported Eagles guard Evan Mathis was expected to be a no-show at the Eagles' voluntary offseason workout program this week at the NovaCare complex. This came as a bit of a surprise but also ties into the story the Eagles were open to trading him last month.
Everybody can breath a sigh of relief.
Birds 24/7's Tim McManus reports Mathis is at the NovaCare complex today and is participating in the voluntary workouts with the team.
Mathis, who turns 33 in November, is set to make $5 million this season as he signed a five-year, $25 million deal prior to the 2012 season. The Eagles guard was considered a Pro Bowl snub in 2012 and was not selected the first time around in 2013 but got in after injuries caused some players to back out. He was a first-team All Pro guard who had his best year to date in 2013.
Mathis just completed his third season in Philadelphia after signing with the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent in 2011.
