Patriots' Jordan Matthews: Settles for modest contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) only received $170,000 guaranteed in his one-year, $1 million contract with the Patriots, though he can earn another $700,000 in incentives, Albert Breer of reports.

After topping 800 yards each of his three seasons in Philadelphia, the 25-year-old wideout managed just 25 catches for 282 yards in 10 games for the Bills last year, limited by injuries to his knee, sternum, ankle and thumb. He had surgery on his right ankle and left knee in December, fixing one new injury (the ankle) and another (the knee) that had been a lingering problem since at least summer 2016. Matthews found his market to be soft while he was rehabbing from the procedures, ultimately signing with New England on a contract that suggests he could lose his roster spot if he doesn't look good during training camp. However, he should have every opportunity to compete for a regular role in three-wide formations alongside Chris Hogan and Julian Edelman (knee). Matthews doesn't have the most reliable hands and has accumulated nearly all of his production while working from the slot, but he nonetheless could prove to be a strong fit if the Patriots are comfortable primarily using Edelman outside. Unlike his new teammate, Edelman has a strong track record as both a slot man and outside receiver. The Patriots presumably would use Edelman in the slot on a regular basis if Malcolm Mitchell (knee), Phillip Dorsett, Kenny Britt or Cordarrelle Patterson were to beat out Mathews for the No. 3 role.

Patriots' Jordan Matthews: Signing with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) is signing with the Patriots on a one-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Matthews visited New England earlier in the week. After the Patriots traded Brandin Cooks to the Rams on Tuesday, the subsequent move was to fill the gap with Matthews, who is coming off of a career-worst year with the Bills. The fifth-year receiver should have a much more fruitful season in New England if he can stay on the field, as he missed a total of 10 games in 2017 with a combination of thumb, knee and ankle injuries.

Jordan Matthews: Visiting with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) is visiting the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Arguably the top wideout still on the market, Matthews is looking to bounce back from a lost season in Buffalo and previously visited the Cardinals, Packers and Patriots. His ample experience playing the slot would make him a natural replacement for Eric Decker, though the Titans may believe 2017 third-round pick Taywan Taylor is ready for the role. Matthews had surgery on his left knee and right ankle in early-to-mid December, finishing the 2017 campaign with career-low marks for games (10), catches (25), targets (36), yards (282) and touchdowns (one). The 2014 second-round pick went over 800 yards in each of his first three seasons, operating as the Eagles' No. 1 receiver throughout most of that stretch.

Jordan Matthews: Visits New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee/ankle) reportedly visited the Patriots on Monday, according to the Buffalo News.

The 2014 second-rounder saw his production dip to 25 catches for 282 yards and a TD in 10 games with the Bills last season, but Matthews did put up some PPR-friendly numbers during his three-year stint with the Eagles. That he's still available this deep into free agency indicates the market for the 25-year-old wideout isn't sizzling on the heels of a 2017 campaign marred by ankle and knee issues. Matthews previously visited the Cardinals and Packers.

Jordan Matthews: Visiting the Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) will visit the Packers on Friday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

When healthy, Matthews was quite productive in three seasons with the Eagles, recording 225 catches for 2,673 yards (7.7 YPT) and 19 touchdowns in 46 games. Lingering injuries followed him to Buffalo last August, though, when he was traded for cornerback Ronald Darby. The result was 25 receptions for 282 yards (7.8 YPT) and one TD in 10 games prior to landing on IR after Week 13. Matthews subsequently underwent surgeries on his left knee and right ankle, which likely will be scrutinized by the Packers' medical staff during his stop in Green Bay.
