The 26-year-old Matthews returned into the Philadelphia Eagles at September after season-ending harms to wideouts Mike Wallace and Mack Hollins. He appeared in 14 matches and submitted 20 receptions for 300 yards with 2 touchdowns.
Matthews, a former second-round choose from Vanderbilt, averaged 75 catches, 891 yards and 6 touchdowns during his first few years at Philadelphia, becoming one of only five players in NFL history to capture 65-plus receptions along with 800-plus receiving yards in each of his first three seasons.
He was substituted into the Buffalo Bills prior to the 20 17 season along with a third-round choice for cornerback Ronald Darby.
His time at Buffalo, and after New England, was impacted by harms. He was published by The Patriots at August with an accident settlement.
For his career, Matthews has 270 catches for 3,255 yards and 22 TDs.
