Would cutting #PhiladelphiaEagles RB #RyanMathews really be a good idea? Mathews has played 2 seasons in Philly and has been pretty productive when active. Mathews came into Philly with only 24 total TDs in his 5 seasons with San Diego. However, in his 2 seasons in Philly, Mathews has put up a total of 16 TDs! That's a huge difference in 2 seasons, compared to 5. Mathews is averaging 4.59 yards per carry, and has a total of 1,200 rushing yards in his 2 seasons in Philly. He has missed a total of 6 games, but when he's in and healthy, he truly does make a difference on offense. He has lost 5 fumbles in the past 2 seasons, but let's be honest, every RB fumbles. I would say that's his weakest point, however the numbers don't lie. Being in a total of 26 games and putting up 16 total TDs, and rushing for 1,200 yards in a RB committee offense isn't too shabby. Keep in mind Lane wasn't in for a piece of those games Ryan was in. Cutting Ryan would leave the #Eagles to save $4 million in cap space, and leaving $1 million in dead cap. I'm just not too sure if it's worth cutting #RyanMathews to be honest with you. If we can get him to get healthy in offseason (which is unlikely) and if he's still in good shape, I say keep him. Hard to keep him healthy unfortunately, but still a key part to the offense when he's in. With a healthy #DarrenSproles and #WendellSmallwood coming back off an injury, I think we will be in good hands. Looking forward to our OL in 2017 as well with #LaneJohnson back and hopefully #JasonPeters . Think a little more to yourself and think if it really is worth cutting #RyanMathews . Doing research on his stats, AVG yards per carry, TDs, and etc, I'm coming to the conclusion that it may be better to just keep Mathews and see how he does for one more year. We've all seen the healthy side of Ryan, and it is deadly!
Just wanted to share this with you.
