Former Vanderbilt standout WR Jordan Matthews is signing a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Matthews played the 2017 season with the Buffalo Bills after playing for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2014-16. He missed a portion of the 2017 season due to a thumb injury, and he had three surgeries: thumb, left knee and right ankle.
In four career NFL seasons, Matthews has recorded 250 catches for 2,955 yards and 20 TDs, and what a weapon he could be for Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense.
During his four-year Vanderbilt career, Matthews set SEC and Vanderbilt records for receptions (262) and yards (3,759). He still holds the Commodores’ record for career TDs (24), too.
Patriots are signing former Bills’ WR Jordan Matthews to a one-year deal, per source. Healthy now, so could be a real factor.
