Post Evan Mathis On The Trade Block
Rumors are that the Eagles are willing to move Evan Mathis, their first team All-Pro left guard for a 3rd round pick. He's 32 years old (33 in November), coming off of a stellar 2013 season (and 2012, and 2011), and certainly fits an area of need. But he's looking for more money and he's already due to make $5M this season, $5.5M in 2015, and $6M in 2016.

What does everyone think? Should we try to get this guy?

Is the price tag too steep considering his age? Is a 3rd round pick too much to give up?

Leave the old guys who over-value their market price alone.

There is no denying the man has talent and would be a serious upgrade. But I agree, no sense in Miami spending a quality draft pick on a 32 year old lineman that wants too much money. I'd much rather see Miami take a quality offensive guard in the early rounds.

As far as I'm concerned, premium money should only be appropriated for premium positions ..... not guards.

Why trade for Mathis when Travelle Wharton is available and is a free agent. No draft pick compensation and he is not wanting more money like Mathis is. Plus, he is a very solid OG.

At this point in the game, most of these guys realize they are not getting big money. The reason Philly is looking to trade Mathis is they just gave him a nice deal and he wants to re-negotiate his contract.

No thanks. Been a good player for Philly. Was terrible for Miami like Wade Smith was, go figure.

Stay younger on new additions.

I agree, you pay elite quarterbacks, left tackles, and pass rushers the big money. On a rare occasion, you pay a shutdown cornerback or #1 receiver, but it's rare that those positions pan out when big money is thrown at them so you have to be extra careful when investing. Other than that, you offer fair market value for other positions and you have to be prepared to re-load in the draft every year and learn to live with compensatory picks every now and then.
