The Philadelphia Eagles released running back Ryan Mathews after he was medically cleared to practice on Tuesday.

Mathews suffered a herniated disk in his neck last season during a Week 16 game against the New York Giants.

"We want to thank Ryan for his contributions to the Philadelphia Eagles over the past two seasons," the team said in a statement. Jordan Matthews Jerseys"We spoke today and had a productive conversation about his future and the direction of our team going forward.

"First and foremost, Darren Sproles Jerseyswe are glad that Ryan is healthy and has been cleared to return to football activities but given the current state of our running back position, we feel like it is best for both sides to go in a different direction. We wish him all the best as he continues his career."

The long-expected move gives the team $4 million in cap relief.The Eagles signed LeGarrette Blount to a one-year, $1.25 million deal this offseason to serve as the lead back. Blount established career highs in carries (299), Brian Dawkins Jerseysrushing yards (1,161) and rushing touchdowns (18) in 2016 for the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. He will share the load in Philly with a group that is expected to include 34-year-old Darren Sproles, Connor Barwin Jerseyssecond-year back Wendell Smallwood and rookie Donnel Pumphrey.

Mathews, a seven-year veteran, Fletcher Cox Jerseyshad an up-and-down 2016 season due in part to injury, finishing with 661 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. He also had 13 receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.
