The Evan Mathis sweepstakes are officially over. Adam Schefter is reporting the free agent guard has signed a one year deal with the Denver Broncos. The deal is reportedly worth $2.5 million with incentives that could boost it to $4 million. John Clayton briefly connected the 49ers with Mathis earlier this summer, but that was likely just agent puffery.
The 49ers seem content with their various OL options. Alex Boone and Marcus Martin have handled guard duties primarily. Brandon Thomas is getting more left guard work lately with the second team. On Tuesday, Ian Silberman got first team right guard work, with Martin at center.
The right guard and center roles do not seem 100 percent settled, but it appears likely the 49ers will not look outward for additional help. It is an amusing coincidence nonetheless that the 49ers face Mathis's new team this weekend. I imagine he gets some snaps, but probably not a lot right out of the gate.
