Former Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews is trying to catch on somewhere as a tight end this season.
Based on the below tweet, it seems NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport was encouraged by “noted TE agent Steve Caric” to get this info out into the public eye.
Veteran ex-WR Jordan Matthews has added 15+ LBs & will work out this weekend as a TE for NFL scouts at the HUB camp in SD. He attended TEU & has been working out in Nashville with a group of TEs including George Kittle & Robert Tonyan. He is repped by noted TE agent Steve Caric. pic.twitter.com/B6JF99jh6U

As expected, No. 1 Jordan Matthews supporter Eliot Shorr-Parks was all over this breaking development, delivering a timely, and predictable, take.
Big day for ESP. Huge for the brand (fire emoji).

Matthews caught just four passes in five games over the last two seasons, so the position switch makes sense.
