Evan Mathis on hand for Eagles' offseason workouts

Time to put those Evan Mathis trade rumors to bed.

The Eagles' All-Pro guard was on hand Monday for the start of Philadelphia's voluntary offseason workout program, a source informed of the player's plans told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Philadelphia made waves at last month's NFL Annual Meeting by announcing that Mathis -- and his weighty $5.15 million salary -- could be had in a trade. The 32-year-old blocker is seeking a new contract, but coach Chip Kelly told reporters in March that he's not worried about the lineman's future with the team, calling Mathis a "lunch-pail guy."

Mathis, to his credit, has poked fun at his up-in-the-air status. After telling Philadelphia Daily News reporter Paul Domowitch on Sunday that he was in Turks and Caicos, Mathis proceeded to retweet reports that he wouldn't show for Eagles workouts.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer called the trade chatter surrounding Mathis "much ado about nothing," and we don't expect the lineman to be moved.

Still, nothing would surprise us from an Eagles team that released DeSean Jackson and reportedly still has eyes for Miami Dolphins pass rusher Dion Jordan heading into next month's draft.
