49ers Sign WR Jordan Matthews


The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday that they’ve signed WR Jordan Matthews to a contract. 

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 and he returned to the Eagles last September. 

In 2018, Matthews appeared in 14 games for the Eagles and caught 20 passes for 300 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
