Report: Eagles bringing Jordan Matthews in for physical

The Eagles may be looking to a familiar face to fill their familiar void at wide receiver.

According to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com, twice-former Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews is in Philadelphia for a physical.

The Eagles are going to be without DeSean Jackson for at least another six weeks after he had abdominal surgery, which has kept him off the field most of the season.

The Eagles drafted Matthews in the second round in 2014, traded him to the Bills prior to the 2017 season, and then brought him back after he was released by the Patriots in 2018. They let him walk this offseason, and he was cut by the 49ers on Oct. 26.

He won’t replace Jackson’s speed, but at least they know him, and that has to be worth something.

  1. Carson needs his buddies around him or he can’t function.

    30 million dollar game manager who plays favorites. No wonder the locker room is falling apart.

  2. For what? They already have like 4 jordan matthews(big body wr that cant get separation). And to the wentz hater, hes getting 25 mil and unless you’re a Pat’s, saints, hawks or packers fan, your QB hasn’t done anything either. Even at that, it’s been 5+ years since any of them excluding brady has done anything worth bragging about.

  3. ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ GODDERT JEFFRIES ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ AGHOLAR ERTZ ERT ERTZ ERTZ ERTZ ERTZERTZERTZ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,AMD MORE ERTZ !!!!

  4. If Jordan can catch a pass I will take him. Agholor can’t catch, Hollins can’t catch, Alshon can’t catch half the targets right in his hands, I’m not even sure JJ Arcega-Whiteside knows where Lincoln Financial Field is at this point. Matthews had their longest reception last season, should have cut Agholor’ $9+ million paycheck and kept Matthews in the slot.

  5. I don’t think I’m alone among Eagles fans who are incredibly disappointed in Mack Hollins. He had a golden opportunity and has not even shown a flash here or there. At least Matthews can play the slot and catch.

  6. Nelson Agholor : Needs to go at the end of this season!

    Mack Hollins: Needs to go now replace him with Jordan Matthews

    Put DeSean Jackson on IR and sign AB as well.

    JJ Arcega-Whiteside still to early to tell, but not looking great!

    Alshon Jeffery is still a good WR but when you are the only WR easy to cover.

    Last move fire the entire training and medical staff after this year they are a dumpster fire!

    Also correct. Matthews doesn’t have much speed(Jackson), nor is he the biggest(Jeffrey) but unlike every other receiver there not named Ertz, he can catch, and that’s the most important thing. Get rid of Aggy and Djax, at least give jjaw a shot, if these bums who cant catch then at least try out someone who is there. Also agree Hollins is mince

  8. All this clamoring for AB needs to stop. He’s got unresolved legal issues and potential suspension looming. Is that really worth the gamble? It’s not worth it.

  9. “For what? They already have like 4 jordan matthews(big body wr that cant get separation). And to the wentz hater, hes getting 25 mil and unless you’re a Pat’s, saints, hawks or packers fan, your QB hasn’t done anything either.

    Conveniently forgetting the Chiefs, huh? What about the Texans? I mean those are 2 real QB’s, unlike that extremely overpaid brittle field general you call a QB.

    By next season you’ll be asking to get a quarter of his paycheck back is what’s up.

  10. How come most “elite” quarterbacks elevate the play of their receivers yet Wentz and Wentz apologists say he needs the receivers to make him better?

    Why didn’t these receivers have these issues with Nick Foles? Were Torrey Smith and Golden Tate THAT much of a difference. And if so, maybe the guy throwing the football is the issue.
