Evan Mathis (old news) was released by the Eagles.
This is such a good fit for Miami that I hope they explore it, especially considering their competition for his services is the rest of the AFC East and (I think) Denver.
I'm not sure what kind of contract it's going to take in order to get a deal done...Miami has 10 million of cap space this year and literally nothing next year, so year 2 will be a challenge....but Mathis already rejected a 1 million dollar raise from Philly, and is rumored to want approximately 7 million plus per year.
If you can get him on a 1/7, I'd be willing to take that chance. Anything more than that would probably need to be something like this:
4 million extra in guaranteed takehome money years 1 and 2 (when compared with his old Eagles contract), with the 4th year essentially being a team option year. The cap hit stays reasonable for year 2, which is key, but Mathis is still getting paid for 3 years.
I haven't a clue if player or agent would like a deal structured like this, but it definitely works for Miami to a degree. Next cap year will be a burdensome one, for sure, but Mathis' deal does the best possible job of not being a major problem.
