The Dolphins drafted LSU receiver Jarvis Landry with a second-round pick, a sign the team is ready to move on from Matthews.
With the No. 63 pick in the NFL Draft, the
Landry could compete to be the No. 3 receiver for the Dolphins this year behind
Landry had a big season in 2013 with 77 catches for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns. He isn't overly fast (he ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine), but he does have good hands and is physical.
Matthews actually led the team in receiving yards in the game, as he hauled in four of the seven passes thrown his way for 58 yards. Moore was less productive, finishing with 25 yards on three catches in a 20-7 loss.
Matthews enters Week 17 against the Jets with 37 receptions for 390 yards and two touchdowns.
Matthews was targeted nine times and brought in five of those passes. He finished the game with 64 yards, his second-best total of the season, with a long catch of 24 yards.
Matthews has topped 50 yards three times this season, and enters Week 16 against the Bills with 36 catches for 381 yards and two touchdowns.
