PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles have released Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis, an NFL source confirms to Action News.

Mathis tweeted a farewell to Philadelphia shortly after the news broke. "Thanks for the memories Philly," he tweeted Thursday afternoon.

The team hasn't yet announced the move.

Drew Rosenhaus, Mathis' agent, has declined to comment.

Mathis has skipped the Eagles' offseason workouts in a contract dispute.

He has made two Pro Bowls since signing a five-year, $25 million contract with the Eagles in 2012. He skipped voluntary workouts last year and got the Eagles to agree to let him seek a partner for a trade but, as coach Chip Kelly sharply pointed out during the draft, the Eagles received no offers for Mathis from other teams.

Prior to joining the Eagles, Mathis played for Cincinnati, Miami, and Carolina Panthers.
