This news is actually good for the Philadelphia Eagles, and other NFC teams because the NFC conference is already loaded as it is; it’s nice to get some good decent players over to the AFC conference. Maybe not preferably New England, but it still works.
Anyways, the New England Patriots agree to terms with Philadelphia Eagles’ former wide receiver Jordan Matthews. Matthews, age 25, was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. During his rookie year he received a whopping eight touchdowns, and 128 receiving yards short of 1,000. His was released prior to the 2017 season by the Eagles, but not before receiving just three touchdowns, and still somehow being the best wideout on the Eagles’ roster during the time. Before the 2017 season, Jordan Matthews was signed by the Buffalo Bills, but unfortunately, Matthews dealt with numerous injuries that put his 2017 season to rest.
Next season, Jordan Matthews looks to channel his 2014 and 2015 season with the Patriots, and hopefully make the AFC conference harder to beat, considering the weakness of it now. Nonetheless, Matthews will have high expectations as he replaces Brandin Cooks after his departure.
