Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Building rapport with Bradford
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Matthews spent a week working out with quarterback Sam Bradford earlier this offseason, Philly.com reports.

Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work out with Bradford in hopes of continuing to build their quarterback-receiver chemistry. Although Bradford's recent trade request, which was later rescinded, briefly made matters contentious between he and the Eagles, Matthews holds no ill-will toward Bradford, and clearly is determined to build on the duo's strong second half of last season. After finishing with 85 catches for 997 yards and eight touchdowns last year, Matthews is expected to start at an unfamiliar outside position this season, so by already working with Bradford, he's prepared for a smoother transition when OTAs begin next week.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Set to try outside receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan Matthews will play outside receiver for the first time in his career in 2016, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman reports.

After spending his first two seasons playing almost exclusively in the slot, a shift to the outside will be an interesting change of pace for the third-year wideout. Matthews' size was a big advantage against often-undersized slot cornerbacks, but he has emerged as the team's top receiving threat since the departure of fellow wideouts DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, and teams' top receivers typically line up on the outside. He'll face elite coverage, but Matthews will also have a chance to prove he belongs as the Philadelphia Eagles ' No. 1 receiver.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Two touchdowns in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan Matthews caught seven passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Matthews finished his second season with 85 catches for 997 yards and eight touchdowns, a marked statistical improvement from last season despite his up-and-down play. His second half of the season, when quarterback Sam Bradford played his best football, showed that Matthews has the potential to be a perennial 1,000-yard wide receiver when he receives consistent quarterback play. Whether he has solved his drop problem completely remains to be seen.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Scores in loss to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan Matthews caught six of eight targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Saturday against Washington.

Matthews has been playing very well of late, as he now has back-to-back games with over 100 yards and a touchdown, and he's found the end zone in four of his last five games. Up next is a Week 17 matchup against the Giants, who he had six catches on 11 targets for 59 yards against back in Week 6.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Has best game of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Matthews (back) had eight catches for 159 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Cardinals.

Matthews got off to a roaring start, catching all three of his targets for 53 yards on the Eagles' opening drive. He mostly settled for short gains for the rest of the night, until the Cardinals gifted him a 78-yard touchdown on a blown coverage early in the fourth quarter. He didn't seem to see as much of Tyrann Mathieu's coverage as expected, perhaps because of a conscious effort by the Eagles to move Matthews around. Even though the touchdown didn't require much work on his part, Matthews still played one of his best games this season, doing excellent work after the catch and avoiding any bad drops. He's been maddeningly inconsistent in terms of both target volume and real-life performance, but a Week 16 matchup with Washington at least gives him a decent shot to have one of his better games.
