Eagles Sign WR Jordan Matthews, Place WR Mike Wallace On IR

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday morning that they’ve signed WR Jordan Matthews to a contract and placed WR Mike Wallace on injured reserve.

Matthews, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2014. The Eagles traded Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Bills in return for CB Ronald Darby last year.

Matthews played out the final year of his four-year, $4,949,269 contract and made a base salary of $1,094,901 for the 2017 season before signing a one-year contract with Patriots worth up to $1.7 million.

Unfortunately, the Patriots released Matthews during the preseason with an injury settlement.

In 2017, Matthews appeared in 10 games and caught 25 passes for 282 yards receiving and one touchdown for the Bills. Unfortunately, Matthews’ season ended with him being placed on injured reserve.

Wallace, 32, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2009. He spent four years in Pittsburgh before signing on with the Dolphins in 2013.

Wallace was later traded to the Vikings before the cut him loose after one season. Wallace spent the past two seasons with the Ravens before signing a one-year, $1.915 million contract with the Eagles this past March.

In 2018, Wallace has appeared in two games, but has yet to catch a single pass.
