Evan Bradley Mathis (born November 1, 1981) is an American football offensive guard for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at Alabama.
Although he bulked up from 240 pounds (110 kg) to 276 pounds (125 kg) after signing with Alabama in February 2000, Mathis was redshirted as a true freshman. In April 2001, he was named the Paul Crane Most Improved Offensive Lineman for Alabama along with tight end Theo Sanders. He competed with Alonzo Ephraim for the starting center job during spring practice in 2001, but lost out. Instead, he beat out Dante Ellington for the starting right tackle job, making his first start against South Carolina.
Mathis started four seasons on the offensive line for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. His first three years he played tackle, before shifting to left guard as a senior. He started 47 consecutive games beginning in the 4th game of his redshirt freshman year. He helped anchor an offensive line that paved the way for the Tide to lead the Southeastern Conference in rushing yards per game in 2004.
Signed a five-year, $25.5 million contract with the Eagles on March 17, 2012.
Named to the USA Today All-Joe Team after the 2012 season
