I see this was reported in the Offseason thread. Feel free to lock this up if you want but I think releasing a starter this late in the game is worthy of its own thread.

Personally I'm not shocked at the move but I would have thought that we would have brought in some more depth guys or drafted someone, especially after releasing Herrremans in the same offseason and the O-Line coming off an injury-filled down year.

Not sure what to make of this. I'm not surprised by this, and I do share the attitude that guys who are all about themselves can't be relied upon, but this certainly puts us in a rough spot. I wasn't worried about replacing Herremans but I'm far more worried about replacing the both of them.

I'm fine with Barbre at left guard and think he'll be a good player for us, but I don't feel too comfortable with Tobin, Kelly and Gardner at right guard. Tobin looked great in camp last year but struggled during the regular season (granted he was partially injured).

At this point, it's too late to use this cap space on a guard worth bringing in, and I don't know who will be worth bringing in as camp casualties start to grow in number. My only other thought (if we decide to make a move) would be that Kendricks could be a piece in us going after a young and talented guard.

Yep not surprised

If the report was true, that they backed off of a boost on the contract once Howie was ousted...Evan's response to that (social media jabs and not showing up) sealed his fate. Things might've been different had he accepted the offer when it was first given (if there was time for it) or he just played it cool like Barwin did.

Chip's taking his licks for sure...definitely a hard sell.
But as good as Mathis is now...he is going to be 34 this year. Not really the end of the world long term, but can't be argued it hurts the short term obviously.

I get that Mathis "should've" been a a mil or so higher...but he also had his shot at the negotiating table a couple years ago, on the free market no less. He whined almost immediately after for more money, doesnt exactly make you want to do anything for him if you are the FO.

Mismanaged on multiple sides.

This was just a stupid move. He'll get snatched up by this weekend.

Eh I doubt it....he's gonna hold out for the deal he thinks he's worth and realize no one is giving a 33/34 year old guard that kind of money long term.

This is my issue. Chip is too much balls than brain in these situations. Classic college mentality. "Eh, I'll coach up the next guy....". That only flies so much. I think this one will bite us. Id be ok if we found someone in the draft but we are already thin on the OL and didn't address it at all really.

Good thing we drafted that offensive lineman to replace him.


Oh wait.

If I'm reading this right, he's leaving 11 million on the table for the next two years. Not sure if another team will be willing to give him that kind of money.

Even if he gets 3-4 years, would you guarantee 11 in that contract for a 34 year old. I doubt it.

This is why I was upset that we didn't get Lael Collins. I swear I hate the Cowboys.

Is it literally Chip Kelly's goal to get rid of EVERY good player that he did not draft or bring in as a FA?

Welp, any way you slice it, our team just got worse.
If we save any money by cutting him, we best use that cash to extend Fletcher Cox real quick.
