No surprise here. Mathews was coming off a neck injury and had to be medically cleared before the Eagles could cut him.
Mathews underwent a physical yesterday and today he was cut. The move will save the Eagles $4 million in cap space for this season (with $1 million in dead cap). Joining Mathews in traded or cut players counting against the Eagles’ cap are Chase Daniel, Sam Bradford, Marcus Smith, Eric Rowe, Connor Barwin, Jordan Matthews and Leodis McKelvin. With the move, the Eagles will be third in the league in dead cap money:
Howie Roseman, cap master.
