Jordan Matthews is back.
After the Philadelphia Eagles placed DeSean Jackson on injured reserve following his core muscle surgery, they signed Matthews on Wednesday.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Matthews had a “really good” workout.
Jordan Matthews had “really good” workout with @Eagles, weighed 218, and will fill DeSean Jackson’s roster spot, per source. He’s also has a chemistry with QB Carson Wentz. https://t.co/UlTSax1Pi0

This is Matthews’ third different stint with the team. He was a second-round pick in 2014 and remained with the Eagles until 2017 when he was part of the package that landed them Ronald Darby from the Buffalo Bills. Matthews was with the team for 14 games last season and spent the summer with the San Francisco 49ers before being released.
