However, the Dolphins reportedly told Matthews that they have no plans to make him available for trade or release him outright.
Salguero points to the fact that Matthews is still a young receiver with a cheap contract, so there really isn’t much of an incentive to move on him at this point in time.
Given the roster turnover at the position, it seems likely that the Dolphins could target upgrades in free agency and the draft.
Matthews, 25, still has another year remaining on his four-year, $2,151,392 rookie contract that includes a base salary of $660,000 for the 2015 season.
In 2014, Matthews appeared in 14 games and caught 12 passes for 135 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the Dolphins. According to Pro Football Focus, Matthews was limited to playing just 218 snaps last year.
