Mathews signed a three-year contract with the Eagles on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Mathews was left in limbo while the Eagles turned their attention to DeMarco Murray, but the team ultimately reached agreements with both veteran running backs. While there should be a lot of carries available in the Philadelphia offense, Murray figures to handle the lion's share of the workload, though there's obvious concern about how he'll hold up in the wake of a very busy 2014 season. With both Murray and Darren Sproles more adept than Mathews in the passing game, the former Charger will likely have some barren performances when the Eagles are forced to play from behind. On a more encouraging note, Mathews will be just one DeMarco Murray injury away from operating as the lead back in a fast-paced offense with a strong offensive line.

Mathews has yet to officially sign his three-year deal with the Eagles, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

What was thought to be a done deal Wednesday is apparently not official, as the two sides merely had agreed in principle to a three-year, $11.5 million contract. Mathews has yet to actually sign his contract, leaving the door open for an unexpected snag. Per Schefter, fellow free agent DeMarco Murray plans to visit the Eagles on Thursday, and if a deal is agreed upon, it could throw a wrench in the Mathews agreement.

Mathews has signed a three-year, $11.5 million deal with the Eagles that includes $5 million in guaranteed money, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

After being spurned by Frank Gore earlier this week, the Eagles turn to Mathews to fill the void created by the team's trade of LeSean McCoy to the Bills. The 27-year-old Mathews is coming off a season in which injuries limited him to 74 carries for 330 yards and three TDs in six games for the Chargers. When healthy, however, he has been productive and in the context of the Eagles' offense, while working in tandem with pass-catching back Darren Sproles and possibly Chris Polk to a lesser degree, Mathews will have an opportunity to put up fantasy-worthy numbers, as long as he can stay on the field.

Mathews is visiting with the Eagles on Wednesday and is expected to sign a contract, Philadelphia Magazine reports.

With LeSean McCoy traded away to Buffalo and Frank Gore backing out of his commitment with the team to sign with Indianapolis, the Eagles seem to have finally settled on a lead running back. While both Darren Sproles and Chris Polk both figure to remain relevant in the Eagles' running attack, Mathews' ideal blend of size (6-foot, 220 pounds) and speed (4.45 40 time at the 2010 NFL Combine) seemingly make him a good fit for coach Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense. Unfortunately for Mathews, injuries remain a constant worry, as he's played 16 games just once in his five NFL seasons. Those durability concerns will once again make him a high-risk, high-upside fantasy selection again in 2015.
