The Eagles officially signed Ryan Mathews to a three-year deal, adding intrigue to DeMarco Murray's visit to Philadelphia.
Mathews, 27, has twice eclipsed 1,000 yards and only once played 16 games. The injury-prone running back was a Pro Bowler in 2011.
The Eagles now have Mathews, Darren Sproles, Kejon Barner, and Matthew Tucker under contract. Chris Polk is a restricted free agent.
And then, of course, Murray, who is expected to sign also. It makes for a crowded backfield.
