From Eagles G @EvanMathis69: “Ravens have offered a nice deal. I’m flying back to Arizona to think about it and discuss it with my family.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Eagles free agent guard Evan Mathis has an offer from the Ravens but hasn’t yet taken it. Is Mathis passing this info on to the public a ploy to get the Eagles to up an offer to retain his services? It doesn’t appear as if Mathis was blown away by the Ravens or he would have signed already?
And as Jeff McLane tweets, the Eagles also have an offer out to Mathis.
#Eagles have made competitive contract offer to G Evan Mathis, as well. Team has no general sense which way he’ll choose.

Competitive, eh? Clearly Mathis wasn’t blown away by the Birds offer either.
UPDATE: And then Roob had this to add later in the day:
Told by a league source the Eagles offered to beat Ravens’ offer for Evan Mathis.
