  49ers | Jordan Matthews likely to make roster    Sun Jul 21, 03:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews is expected to make the 53-man roster along with Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin, Jalen Hurd and Deebo Samuel, according to Cam Inman of The Mercury News.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver. The last receiver or two to get cut from their roster should make another team. Matthews, Trent Taylor, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James all have experience but only one or two will make the roster.

  49ers | Jordan Matthews making plays    Fri Jun 28, 09:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews spent time with the first-team offense during spring practices and had 'his moments' in that role, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.

Footballguys view: Matthews will be battling to make the team in one of the deepest wide receiver groups in the league. There might be a spot as the #6 up for grabs between Matthews and Richie James. Either could catch on elsewhere if they don't make the 49ers final 53.

  49ers | Jordan Matthews on the bubble?    Thu May 2, 02:27 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews is on the bubble following the team's selections of WRs Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco, who also mentions WR Richie James and possibly WR Kendrick Bourne as players whose spots are not guaranteed.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The 49ers added quality talent to their WR corps in the 2019 NFL draft, and that may push a guy like Matthews off the roster.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, illness) did not practice Friday, Sept. 28 and is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans. S Rodney McLeod (knee) and RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) also did not practice and are ruled out. RB Corey Clement (quadriceps) and LB Nathan Gerry (groin) were limited participants and are considered questionable. RB Jay Ajayi (back) and WR Jordan Matthews (hamstring) practiced in full and were removed from the report.

Footballguys view: The Eagles will probably play it safe with Jeffery, which helps Dallas Goedert's case for Week 4 snaps and targets.

  Eagles | Eagles courting Jordan Matthews?    Tue Sep 18, 03:23 PM

Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Patriots) was spotted at the Philadelphia Eagles' facility Tuesday, Sept. 19, and is a candidate to re-sign with the team with the Eagles in need of wide receiver help.

Footballguys view: Matthews was released by the Patriots with an injury settlement back in early August. He was reportedly dealing with a serious hamstring injury at the time. If healthy, Matthews could step right in and contribute on a team that is desperate for WR help.

  Patriots | Jordan Matthews' injury significant    Wed Aug 1, 11:02 AM

Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews (hamstring) has a hamstring injury that is deemed to be significant, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Matthews goes from roster bubble to presumptive cut on this news. The interest in Eric Decker makes a lot more sense more. Decker could have some marginal value if he's signed and wins most or all of the Edelman role for Weeks 1-4.

  Patriots | Jordan Matthews out of practice    Wed Aug 1, 09:58 AM

New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews (hamstring) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Matthews is in a dogfight for a roster spot and needs to get back on the field soon. He's not worth a late round pick in PPR leagues if this lingers.

  Patriots | Jordan Matthews unable to finish practice    Sun Jul 29, 06:44 PM

New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews (hamstring) left practice early Sunday, July 29, because of a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: It doesn't appear to be serious but in the free for all for Patriots wide receiver roster spots, a player can't afford to give up any ground. Matthews isn't a lock for the roster, so he'll need to get back on the field soon.

  Patriots | Jordan Matthews considered a lock    Wed Jul 18, 09:35 AM

New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews is considered a lock to make the team, according to beat writer Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: Anytime Reiss is hyping a player the way he's doing with Matthews (remember his Wes Welker information years ago?) we always pay close attention. Matthews looked good during OTAs and minicamp this spring, and the Patriots should use him early and often while Julian Edelman is serving his four-game suspension to begin the regular season. Matthews makes for a perfect addition late in your draft. His current ADP is WR59 (13.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Jordan Matthews could contribute early    Fri Jun 29, 06:10 PM

New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews is expected 'to emerge in some form' while Julian Edelman serves his four-game suspension to begin the season, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: Matthews didn't do much to impress in 10 games with Buffalo last year. Working from the slot and catching passes from Tom Brady gives Matthews a whole new look for fantasy owners in 2018...especially with Edelman's month-long ban. He's a late-round flier (WR65, 14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Jordan Matthews meets with Tennessee    Tue Apr 3, 10:52 PM

Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) is visiting with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, April 3. Matthews, who reportedly has an offer from the Arizona Cardinals, has also met with the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Matthews has received tepid interest in the free agency. He's basically a slot receiver only and coming off of an injury-plagued season. He'll probably just get a one-year prove it deal despite being only 25.

  Cardinals | Jordan Matthews has offer from Arizona    Mon Apr 2, 05:49 PM

Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) has been given an undisclosed offer from the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. As reported earlier, Matthews visited the New England Patriots Monday, April 2.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are a very wide receiver poor team, but they did at least add Brice Butler this week. Matthews could struggle for playing time if he's signed because Larry Fitzgerald is doing a lot of work from the slot at this point in his career.

  Patriots | Two players visit Patriots     Mon Apr 2, 05:00 PM

Free-agents WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) and TE Troy Niklas (Cardinals) are visiting the New England Patriots Monday, April 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Both are former second-round picks that are coming off of disappointing seasons. Matthews had a brighter future earlier in his career, but was out of the Eagles plans when they traded him and Matthews was hurt and didn't contribute much in Buffalo. Niklas was part of the long line of Notre Dame tight ends to go to the NFL, but injuries and lack of development kept him from delivering on the investment.

  Packers | Jordan Matthews to meet with Packers    Thu Mar 22, 06:30 PM

Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) is scheduled to meet with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers are always looking to add to their receiving corps, though it's normally something they address in the draft. A new front office means a new way of doing business though, and Matthews has the size to be attractive, if he can finally use it properly.

  Bills | Jordan Matthews placed on IR    Tue Dec 5, 04:17 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Matthews first (and likely only) year in Buffalo goes down as a huge disappointment. He's missed time and battled through a multitude of injuries, including knee, chest and thumb problems. A second-round pick in 2014, Matthews is headed for the open market this offseason. With a history of knee problems and coming off such a down year (25 catches, 282 yards, one touchdown), we can't imagine teams falling all over themselves to sign Matthews.

Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Matthews should be out there on Sunday against the Chiefs. The Bills might be playing without WR Kelvin Benjamin, so having Matthews out there will help. However, we are not that excited about the Bills passing game in Week 12. Matthews is a desperation 'what the heck' flex if he plays.
