So, Jordan Matthews has been at OTA’s because of knee tendinitis, and his absence couldn’t come at a worse time!
The Eagles signed Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery as free agents and drafted Mack Hollins.
So when Matthews shows up he’ll behind the practice curve.
At 73.7, Matthews graded as the 56th best wide receiver out 115 eligible in 2016. This was on par with both his 2014 (76.9) and 2015 (68.6) seasons.
Matthews has primarily played in the slot throughout his career, with 85 percent of his routes run throughout his career out of the slot. Since entering the league in 2014 Matthews has never finished lower the sixth in yards per route run from the slot.
Since 2014, no other receiver has been targeted more or has more receiving yards from the slot than Matthews.
