A familiar face from Houston Texans history is getting his first opportunity to coach in the NFL.
Former Texans linebacker De Meco Ryans will take a role with the San Francisco 49ers as a defensive quality control coach.
Beat writer Jimmy Kempski believes the Eagles would have already released Mathews if there were no NFL salary cap.
As is, the Eagles rank 29th in available cap space (.08 million) and are therefore waiting for Mathews' clearance from neck surgery to wipe his full million salary off the books.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who has missed the last three games because of a calf injury, returned to practice on Tuesday as the team went through a light session to kick off the week.
It doesn’t sound like Kendricks did much as linebacker De Meco Ryans said, via Dave Weinberg of the , that Kendricks “just warmed up with his helmet on,” but that’s still a little bit ahead of where he was last week.
Former Detroit Lions safety Daniel Bullocks, 33, has been hired as the assistant defensive backs coach and Vince Oghobaase, 30, will serve as the assistant defensive line coach.

The San Francisco 49ers named De Meco Ryans as their defensive quality control coach on Tuesday.
Mathews underwent neck surgery after the season and has been excused from camp while he recovers.
The Eagles want to wait until he is able to pass a physical to release him, which would allow them to avoid an injury settlement, but the Philadelphia Daily News' Les Bowen reports he will not be cleared for at least another couple weeks.
