The Eagles continue to take care of their own.
After re-signing guard Todd Herremans and defensive end Trent Colts and franchise-tagged wideout DeSean Jackson, the Eagles have brought back an unrestricted free agent.
The team has announced that guard Evan Mathis agreed to terms on a five-year deal.
A source with knowledge of the contract tells PFT it’s worth $25.5 million, with $7 million guaranteed. Incentives and escalators can push it to $31.25 million.
Mathis, who spent seven NFL seasons with the Panthers, Dolphins, and Bengals, found a home in Philly via a one-year deal signed in 2011. He started 15 games for the revamped offensive line.
He’s ranked No. 25 on the PFT Hot 100. (Hadn’t you heard we’re keeping a list of the top 100 free agents?)
