Evan Mathis still reports to camp despite wanting a new deal

When a new NFL season starts, players hold out for new contracts as they feel like they have outplayed them. In the case of Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard Evan Mathis he has outplayed his contract but will not hold out.

According to Tim McManus of Birds 24/7, he says that Mathis will report to training camp and was considering a holdout but ultimately decided against it.

This upcoming season, Mathis will be making $5.15 million after being an All-Pro last season. Mathis has been one of the most stable offensive linemen on the Eagles’ line. Since joining the Eagles in 2011, Mathis has not missed a single game.

The Eagles will need Mathis again this season to perform at a high level because they will be missing Lane Johnson for the first four games of the regular season due to a suspension for PEDs.
