Worst kept secret in the world, yeah?
Jordan Matthews was in town Tuesday for a physical with the Eagles, and it looks like the deal is complete now:

It was inevitable.
J-Matt is back for a third stint with the Eagles after being cut by the 49ers prior to the season. He previously spent 2014-2016 with the Birds before going to Buffalo in the Ronald Darby trade. He wound up on IR up there, had a brief run in New England, and then found his way back to Philadelphia last year after Mike Wallace went down.
It’s not an exciting move, but Matthews is familiar with the offense and familiar with Carson Wentz. He’s 27 years old and is an upgrade over Mack Hollins, who can go back to being a special teamer or whatever it is he actually wants to do.
Here are Matthews’ career stats if you’d like a refresher:
