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