The Philadelphia Eagles have been making wholesale changes. And Chip Kelly doesn’t care what you think.

Shortly after the team announced they have signed DeMarco Murray to a five-year deal, another Eagle could be on his way out.

Evan Mathis is reportedly on the trading block. He’s going to be 34 in November and missed seven games due to a knee injury last season.

He’s expected to make $5.5 million this upcoming season. He’s also has a $6 million salary for 2016.

Should Mathis also go, he would be the second change to the offensive line, as Todd Herremans was cut before signing with the Indianapolis Colts.

Mathis has been linked to being moved in the past. However, he would always stay put.

The Miami Dolphins have been rumored as a potential destination, but there are writers in Miami that say he’s not going to be traded there. The St. Louis Rams could be in the mix, as well.

Mathis has been with the Eagles since the 2011 season. This past season, he only played in nine games after missing just one game in his first three seasons.

Before arriving in the City of Brotherly Love, he played three seasons each with the Carolina Panthers and the Cincinnati Bengals.
