The negativity surrounding Ryan Mathews’ is as thick as it has ever been. Although his contract is not up until the end of the 2014 season, fans are calling for something to be done to remove him from the Charger roster.
If the team was to make a move to send Mathews away, a trade seems like the best option. Quite honestly, many fans would prefer to jettison the 26-year-old Running Back by flat-out releasing him. Obviously, there would be salary cap implications if the team were to release the former first round draft pick out of Fresno State. I don not believe the team would even consider this as an option in 2013. Next year it could be a different story if the beleaguered back doesn’t find a way to turn his career a round in a hurry.
For the right rate of return, I am in favor of trading Mathews. What I would like in return is much higher than what Senior Writer Greg Williams is asking for in a trade of Mathews. You will see this in his article later this morning. Williams suggests a trade for something that would make the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles proud, among other items.
