When is the nfl trading deadline? I believe this is Mathis' last year as a Colt. He wants to be paid like an elite pass rushing DE, but he is not without Freeney on the other side. So, the Colts will not over pay him. To me, it seems logical to trade him right now when his value is highest rather than just watch him walk away. A team in the hunt for a championship in need of another pass rusher will certainly overpay.
Am I wrong? Does Mathis ever really produce without Freeney?
