Eagles Workout Former WR Jordan Matthews, Maclin Next?
With the Eagles down to three healthy receivers on the roster, after releasing DeAndre Carter today, the team worked out free agent WR Jordan Matthews on Tuesday according to reports.
The Eagles are very thin at the position with injuries to Alshon Jeffery, Mack Hollins and Mike Wallace. They are currently down to Nelson Agholor, Kamar Aiken and Shelton Gibson after releasing Carter Carter, who played 53 snaps this past weekend.
Matthews hasn't played a down this season, after being released by the Patriots with an injury settlement back in training camp. Matthews was reportedly dealing with a "significant" hamstring injury and was put on injured reserve by New England back on August 1.
The Eagles 2014 second-round pick has been dealing with various injuries since entering the league out of Vanderbilt and caught just 15 balls in 10 games for 282 yards in for the Bills last season.
His best season as a pro came in 2015 when he caught 85 balls for 997 yards and eight touchdowns in Philadelphia.
In addition to Matthews, the Eagles are reported to be bringing in wide receiver Jeremy Maclin for a workout, but it might have to wait a week or so since he is unable to workout due to a leg injury.
Maclin was released back in March by the Ravens after catching just 40 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games for Baltimore.
