Matthews, 27, 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 in August of 2017.
Matthews played out the final year of his four-year, $4,949,269 contract 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 in September of last year.
The 49ers signed Matthews to a one-year, $1.8 million deal back in March but he was among San Francisco’s final roster cuts coming out of the season. He re-signed with the 49ers last month before being released and later re-signing with the Eagles.
In 2019, Matthews has appeared in three games for the 49ers and Eagles and caught four passes for 33 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
