It was questionable whether the Eagles' guard Evan Mathis would show up for today's voluntary OTAs, given that he's a potential trade or holdout candidate. Last night, the Philadelphia Daily News's longtime columnist Paul Domowitch pretty conclusively declared that Mathis would be absent:
Eagles All Pro LG Evan Mathis is expected to be a no-show when team kicks off voluntary offseason workout program this week.

Domowitch had a pretty darn good source telling him Mathis wouldn't be there: Mathis himself. Yesterday, Domowitch texted Mathis to ask if he'd be in Philly for OTAs. Mathis replied with this:
This was just Mathis having some fun with the media. Domowitch told me in an email that Mathis has since apologized to him, and told him that he can always be taken at his word, but "never take me for my pics, pins, [and] emoticons."
