Matthews played 14 games for the Eagles in 2018, recording 20 catches for 300 yards and two touchdowns, and made just one catch in the postseason for Philadelphia for 37 yards — it was Nelson Agholor Jerseys Stitched , however, for a touchdown against the Saints.Head coach Doug Pederson said that Matthews’ ability to jump right in and already be familiar with the playbook and locker room went a long way in helping the 2018 team.Matthews was not on an active roster to start the regular season after bouncing around the league a bit from 2017 to 2018. The Eagles traded him to Buffalo just ahead of the 2017 season, where he went on to claim 25 catches for 282 yards and just one touchdown before being placed on IR in December. Perhaps the most notable thing from his time with the Bills, was him explaining the lack of things to do in Buffalo:The Patriots ended up signing him to a one-year deal worth $1 million ($170,00 guaranteed) in April 2018, but cut him early in the preseason, setting Matthews up for his return to Philadelphia....BLG NOTE: JMatt was a nice in-season pickup for the Eagles last year. Depending on his contract details, him signing with San Fran will potentially help Philly earn a compensatory pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Eagles are currently projected to receive the following comp picks: a third-round selection (for Nick Foles) Youth Malcolm Jenkins Jerseys , a fourth-round selection (for Golden Tate), and another fourth-round selection (for Jordan Hicks). Matthews signing with the 49ers could make the Eagles’ signing of L.J. Fort cancel out with him instead of with Hicks. In simple terms, JMatt moving on helps the Eagles. It didn’t really make sense to keep him because he’d have been a fourth receiver at best (behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor) and he doesn’t contribute on special teams. Also, JMatt expressed desire for a bigger role after the 2018 season.Philadelphia Eagles cut three practice squad players, sign one In addition to making some changes to their 53-man roster, the Philadelphia Eagles announced some practice squad moves on Friday afternoon. The following players have been released: defensive tackle Winston Craig Malcolm Jenkins Jerseys Stitched , wide receiver Greg Ward Jr., and wide receiver Rashard Davis.The following player has been signed: defensive tackle Treyvon Hester.It’s not surprising to see the Eagles cut Craig and Ward. Craig, a Richmond alumnus (Joe Douglas connection), seems strictly more like a practice body than he does a developmental prospect. The Eagles liked Ward’s potential last year but he didn’t really show signs of improvement this summer.Cutting Davis is a little more surprising. He seemed to be pushing for a roster spot before DeAndre Carter stepped up and beat him out. Davis deserved to be on the practice squad.Another surprising part about Davis (and Ward) getting cut is that the Eagles only have five healthy receivers on their 53-man roster with Alshon Jeffery missing time and Mack Hollins being placed on injured reserve. Maybe the Eagles intend to sign one of the two pass catchers they worked out earlier this week?The new guy, Hester, originally entered the league as a seventh-round pick by the Raiders in the 2017 NFL Draft. As a rookie, Hester played in 14 games (one start) and had nine tackles and one forced fumble. Hester made Oakland’s original 53-man roster last weekend but he got cut after Jon Gruden’s team claimed a player on waivers and needed to make room. Speaking of waiver claims, the Eagles unsuccessfully tried to claim two defensive linemen earlier this week. It’s clear they’ve been looking for some more depth at the defensive tackle position. Hester is that guy for now.For those keeping track Youth Darren Sproles Jerseys , the Eagles now have two vacant practice squad spots. It remains to be seen how they’ll fill them. It’s possible the Eagles will put Tre Sullivan, whom they waived on Friday, back on the PS if he goes through waivers unclaimed. That still leaves one open spot. Given how much Howie Roseman likes to churn the bottom of the roster, it’s entirely possible we see some of these waived players return during the season. Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for more very important practice squad news.Current Eagles practice squadRB Josh AdamsCB De’Vante BausbyTE Billy BrownDT Treyvon HesterDE Joe OstmanCB Chandon SullivanC Jon TothLB Joe Walker(Vacant)(Vacant)
