Robert Mathis, Antoine Bethea skip minicamp too

Defensive end Robert Mathis is also staying away because he’s unhappy with his contract.  Safety Antoine Bethea, who is an unsigned restricted free agent, continued his offseason absence by not attending.  (Bethea is not required to be there, and cannot be fined.)

Mathis is in the area and participated in a charity event Thursday night, so the absence is clearly contract related.  Wayne and Mathis both have two years left on their respective deals and have to understand they won’t get paid until Peyton Manning does.
