Ryan Matthews is set to visit the Eagles coming off of MCL surgery... With his 3 season ending injuries...
Can't fucking wait...

QUOTE
Free agent running back Ryan Mathews will visit with the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday and is expected to sign with the team, reports Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

Mathews, 27, played in only six games last season, rushing for 330 yards while dealing with a sprained MCL and an ankle injury. He spent each of his first five seasons with the San Diego Chargers after the team selected him in the first round of the 2010 draft.

Mathews has two 1,000-yard rushing seasons, but he has played in a full 16-game season just once in his career, when he rushed for 1,255 yards and six touchdowns in 2013.

The Eagles are seeking to replace three-time Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy, who was traded to the Buffalo Bills this week and subsequently signed a five-year, $40 million contract.

Mathews has 4,061 career rushing yards and 23 rushing touchdowns, plus 146 receptions for another 1,110 yards.

At least it's an 'MCL' instead of 'ACL' - those were getting old.
