With blount to Philly, wouldnt mind seeing the Bills bringing in Ryan Mathews for the right price. 


providing Philly cuts mathews. Seems they will.

He's injury prone but I'm not too worried about that since he wouldn't be the main guy. Would be great to add to the RB squad imo.

@adamschefter
Signing LeGarrette Blount probably winds up sealing the deal on Ryan Mathews' departure from Eagles once he's healthy.

@pdomo
When Ryan Mathews was healthy, he was one of best short-yardage backs in the league. He converted 76.3 percent (58-76) of and-1 runs.

@spotrac
Releasing RB Ryan Mathews will clear $4M in cap space for the #Eagles, which covers Darren Sproles 2017 cap figure.

Would be better option than Tolbert for me carrying the rock.

He's injured so often, sucks because he's actually a great back when healthy.

RB's should be lining up to play for us for free.  we run the ball more than any other team.  1 year deal with us could lead to long term contract elsewhere

Actually really like the idea. He excels in the one area that Shady struggles. The only sticking point is salary.

 

If, like seasons past, he gets injured, there's always JWill in reserve.

How much would you pay him? They balked at giving up much of anything for Gillislee, I would e disappointed if they were to invest very much in Matthews at this point

Honestly, I'm in the same boat. I guess, by using deductive reasoning, the team wouldn't be willing to give him more than the 2nd round tender price of $2.75m.

 

I'd probably low-ball him with maybe a $1.5m base salary, $250k signing bonus and maybe $31,250k per game active roster bonus (as injury safeguarding).  Max value if he's healthy is $2.25m for the season.

Whether he accepts that coming off a 3-year, $11m deal and a '17 cap hit of $5m is another matter entirely.

Do you see anyone lining up to give him more than 2.5? Blount scored more TDs than anyone in the league last year and he didn't even get that.

Probably not. Can't think of any situation around the league where he's walking into a significant role at this point.

 

I guess it depends on how realistic he is. He was a low-end functional starter for a while, what does his head/agent tell him now?

that LeShady is an alcoholic with hammy issues and he will get a chance to start some games but not be required to carry the load, eventually getting a big deal after a 1 year stint in this offense. Just look at Gillislee!

How's that

Much rather wait and see who gets cut when rosters get trimmed to 53.

I have a feeling Jonathan Williams makes us forget Touchdown Mike AND Fat Karlos.  And who, Ryan Mathews?  I forgot him already.

Looks like people that said he'd be better than Spiller in that draft were correct
