The Eagles Should Just Sign Jordan Matthews and Get it Over With

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

You know it’s coming.

Inevitably, Jordan Matthews will be an Eagle again. A Crossing Broad reader said as much in an email this morning, claiming that Matthews will be in the building today for a workout. And if that doesn’t happen, then the reader is a LIAR.

With DeSean Jackson out for the foreseeable future, J-Matt makes the most sense as a short-term, immediate replacement, a guy who knows the offense, knows Carson Wentz, and can even get behind the defense for the occasional deep toss.

Matthews is still only 27 years old, if you can believe it. He only played one game for San Francisco this season after being released during the final roster trimming before getting re-signed in October. The Niners have enough with George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, Marquise Goodwin and now Emmanuel Sanders, who was added at the trade deadline.

Listen, Matthews had 300 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns last year for this team. He’s not going to light the world on fire, but he’s an instant upgrade over Mack Hollins, who adds nothing to this team. JJ Nelson is also out there as a decent option. JJ Arcega-Whiteside, your second round draft pick, is also a possibility. How about giving him a shot? Jesus. You could also call Torrey Smith or Mike Wallace:

Speed burner, Mike Wallace.

Antonio Brown? Hell nah man. Dez Bryant? Naw.

You know it’s coming. I know it’s coming. This is the worst kept secret in the world. Jordan Matthews is inevitable, just like death, taxes, and Democrats winning handily at the Philly polls today (as half of them run unopposed).

  1. and people wonder why this city is crime and drug ridden with a booming homeless population.

    on the eagles….does Jordan Matthews really get behind any defenses? But yes we should just sign him and get it over with. He is an improvement.

    1. Hahahahaha. So true on the first part. But hey, Democrats are for the working man and the little guy don’t you know! Just ask them, they’ll tell you!

  2. Jordan Matthews, Carson Wentz’s other boyfriend.

    Wentz can’t function without his buddies on the field. Can’t wait to see what dances and celebrations he and Matthews come up with when they’re running the score up on the Dolphins and Giants during that cupcake December the NFL schedule makers have given them.

  3. Mack Hollins reminds me of myself when I would play pickup basketball with the “older guys” back in my youth . Running up and down the court doing Absolutely nothing and not touching the ball

  4. Just couldn’t resist a political insert…so woke…soooo woke.

  5. from the blowout loss last year, or the playoff lost last year? Either way, glad he’s celebrating

  6. I mean he has to be right,…

    We are talking about what a massive upgrade Jordan Matthews is from our current drek, and Wentz is the problem? The guy who has played for 3 teams in 5 seasons, is currently unemployed and has never had a 1000 yard season in his career.

    Wentz is the problem.

    Remember this!

    Not to mention the 2nd round pick DB–who cant sniff the field and is a bust.

    Wentz, he’s the problem.
    Wentz!–Not Howie
