Evan Mathis, the best player in the history of the NFL, re-signs with Eagles

It would appear that the best player in the history of the NFL (according to Pro Football Focus) has decided to stay in Philadelphia:

OK, so he’s not the best player in the history of the NFL, but he had a legitimate Pro Bowl-esque type season playing next to Jason Peters in 2011.  The deal is for 5 years, according to the Eagles.

Mathis had spent a couple days being wined and dined by the Ravens while Eagles fans bombarded him promises of sexual intercourse with their wives and/or sisters if he stayed in Philly.  Ultimately, he chose to stay.  To be determined how many families in the Delaware Valley will be fractured.

Philly’s offensive line was considered to be a potential weakness going into the 2011 season, and those concerns were only heightened after the Eagles lost Ryan Harris for the season and Winston Justice couldn’t get healthy.  The Eagles were forced to kick Todd Herremans out to RT, and insert Mathis in at LG.  Both players had good seasons, and the OL unit unexpectedly became a strength.  Herremans signed a contract extension this week.  Today it was Mathis’ turn.  This group should be around for a while:

LT Jason Peters – Signed through 2014

LG Evan Mathis – Signed through 2016

C Jason Kelce – Signed through 2014

RG Danny Watkins – Signed through 2014

RT Todd Herremans – Signed through 2016

This is by far and away the best offensive line in the NFC East.

  7. I wish to show my appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this particular instance. Because of checking through the internet and seeing strategies which are not helpful, I believed my entire life was over. Existing without the approaches to the issues you have resolved all through your post is a crucial case, as well as the ones that could have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your web page.

    Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem together with your site in web explorer, might check this… IE still is the market leader and a big element of other people will leave out your excellent writing due to this problem.

  12. Outstanding article it is really. My father has been awaiting for this tips.

  13. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  14. Many people tend to believe the following but We don’t even think I’m one.

    Damn, that line is beastly.

  16. brisulph says:

    I guess the Eagles have to be the best at something… 😛

        Hahahahahahaha!

      We can’t all luck our way to a Super Bowl; some of us have to develop a talented team if we want to get there :p

      1. brisulph says:

        That’s right, Giants run was 148% luck, can’t forget that. Finished the year 13 Lucks – 7 No Lucks for a record.

      1. brisulph says:

        I wonder how badly all of your heads will explode when your team finally wins a Super Bowl. Seriously, that is the best you have…

  17. Imp says:

    Best player in NFL history? Please! He’s the best sports athlete of all time!

    1. I didn’t want to be called a homer, so I undersold him a little bit.

      (But between you and me, I agree).

      1. Ty says:

        Tommy would like a word with you about a certain Mr. Landri.

  18. Eric says:

    Peters is signed until 2014.

    1. Oops, I even went to eaglescap.com. Must have read the wrong line. Thanks.

    2. Alex says:

      That’s good news.

  19. Alex says:

    Any chance the Eagles will now aproach Peters about extending his contract beyond 2013??

    1. Anders says:

      I hope they do, that guy is a monster and should have a few more good years in him.

    2. Had the same thought. It’s possible. I think everyone is focused on McCoy, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Peters extended. The one thing that would hold that back from the Eagles’ perspective is that he’s already 30 (although Trent Cole is only 9 months younger).

      1. Alex says:

        Peters would command a huge contract, probably the biggest for any OL in the league.

        1. Anders says:

          Didnt he already get the most money for an LT when the eagles gave him his current deal?

          1. Alex says:

            I think you’re right! It was 6 years, $60m according to his wikipeda page.

            1. Anders says:

              I remember the reason he was traded to us, was that the Bills didnt wanna pay like the best LT, but we was and AR even called him the best LT in the NFL with alot of people laughing at AR for calling him that.

      2. Scratch that. It’s 2014, as noted below. My bad.
