Evan Mathis says the Broncos were the darkhorse team and couldn’t turn it down

Evan Mathis the former Philadelphia Eagles All Pro wanted to find a new team after getting released by the Eagles. While he left a 5.5 million dollar deal with the Eagles, Mathis felt it was best to move on. 

His top priority was to find a contender, which is why he elected to sign with Denver over anyone else.

“The No. 1 priority in finding a new place to play was playing for a contender,” Mathis said, via Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. “The Broncos weren’t in the mix early on. They were kind of the darkhorse in the race. They emerged here late and I just couldn’t turn down that opportunity.”
