Eagles release Jordan Matthews, ending WR´s third sting with team

Jordan Matthews’ third stint with the Eagles has come to an end. 

On Monday, the team stated that they have waived Matthews, who signed with the team just two weeks earlier. Matthews, in two matches with the Eagles, caught four passes for 33 yards. He caught three of six targets for 27 yards in Sunday’s 17-9 loss to the visiting Seahawks. 

The Eagles’ second round pick in the 2014 draft, Matthews caught 225 passes for 2,663 yards and 19 touchdowns during his first three seasons in Philadelphia. Matthews spent one season in Buffalo before returning to Philadelphia last season, catching 20 of 28 targets for 300 yards and two scores in 14 matches.

He started this season with the 49ers before being released by the team for the third time in October.  Matthews was signed to help the Eagles deal with their injuries at the receiver position. Alshon Jeffrey has missed three games this season due to injury, while fellow wideout Nelson Agholor missed Sunday’s game with a knee injury.

On Monday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said both players are “trending in the right direction” with regard to their status for this Sunday’s game versus the Dolphins. 

Pederson also confirmed on Monday that quarterback Carson Wentz sustained a finger injury in his right hand during Sunday’s loss.

Pederson does not expect Wentz to miss any practice time leading up to Sunday’s game.

Pederson also addressed the recent play of his quarterback, who threw a pair of interceptions in Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks.  “There are times when it’s just a matter of setting your feet as a quarterback and just delivering a short throw, or getting your eyes on target a lot sooner than you do,” Pederson said, via Alexis Chassen of SB Nation.

“He’s such a great thrower of the ball down the field, and these are the things that we continue to work on with him and we have to make sure Miles is in the right spot, too.´´

The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles will face off on Monday night in a classic NFC East rivalry game. This game has huge implications on the NFL standings, as the Dallas Cowboys have a bye week and the Washington Redskins lost their week 6 game to the New York Jets.

The Giants head into Philly on Monday night looking to continue their surge in the NFC East after a three game winning streak but they will be in tough against an Eagles side that seemingly found their stride last week and will be looking to send the rabid Eagles fans home happy. The Giants have made huge strides over the last three weeks as Eli Manning seems to have the offense in a groove and while Odell Beckham has been hit and miss this season he remains one of the game’s biggest threats through the air and he will have to be on point in this one if the Giants are to pull off the victory. New York hasn’t been able to get the ground game going with a ton of efficiency but Shane Vereen was huge in the passing game last week and if the Giants continue to look his way and they can pick up good chunks of yardage it will go a long way to keeping Sam Bradford off the field which is where the Giants will operate best.

Philadelphia has been a very interesting to watch this season as they have looked very pedestrian some weeks but world beaters the next and that type of inconsistency is going to cause heart burn for Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia faithful. On paper, the Eagles should be in the mix as NFC contenders as they have a solid ground game led by Demarco Murray and have some weapons through the air in Jordan Matthews and Riley Cooper but the success of the team will be determined by how far Sam Bradford can carry them.

The biggest concern for the Giants is the health of stud wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who did not practice Thursday or Friday due to a hamstring injury sustained in last week’s victory. Rueben Randle will return from his own hamstring injury and provide a familiar target for Manning, who threw for 441 yards and three touchdowns while setting a franchise record with 41 completions. Middle linebacker Jon Beason suffered a concussion last week but practiced on a limited basis Friday for a defense that ranks No. 2 against the run (80.6 yards) and dead last against the pass (304.2).

 

Philadelphia finally managed to get its ground game untracked in the rout of New Orleans as offseason acquisitions DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews each scored a touchdown while rushing for 83 and 73 yards, respectively. Bradford had his second-highest output of the season with 333 yards passing to go along with a pair of TDs, but he also showed his penchant for making the costly mistake by getting intercepted twice in the red zone. The Eagles have also been vulnerable through the air, ranking 26th in the league at 279.6 yards permitted, but they have six interceptions and eight forced fumbles.
