Vikings Sign ILB Casey Matthews



The Vikings announced Tuesday that they have signed former Eagles ILB Casey Matthews.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Vikings hosted former Eagles ILB Casey Matthews for a visit on Tuesday.

This is the first reported interest in Matthews since free agency got underway three weeks ago. The inside linebacker market has been slow-moving to say the least, but Minnesota has reportedly checked in on a few players in recent days.

Matthews, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2011. He played out his four-year, $2,479,864 rookie contract that included $434,864 guaranteed and has been a free agent for the past few weeks.

In 2014, Matthews appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and recorded 53 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 47 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.
