Titans to visit with former Vandy WR Jordan Matthews

The Tennessee Titans have been busy addressing a number of off-season needs in free agency and may be poised to address another one when veteran wide receiver Jordan Matthews visits the team this week.

Matthews, per a league source, is scheduled to come to Nashville to visit with the Titans. He is expected to arrive later today to meet with club officials on Wednesday.

The Titans could be a homecoming of sorts for the former Vanderbilt University star, who was a second-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014.

Matthews, 25, put up solid numbers in three years with the Eagles, catching 67, 85 and 73 passes during his time in Philadelphia.

He was dealt to Buffalo last off-season and struggled through an injury-riddled season with the Bills in 2017. Matthews played in 10 games and caught just 25 passes for 282 yards for Buffalo.

The Titans are a bit short-handed numbers-wise at the wide receiver position. Harry Douglas and Eric Decker are both free agents, and the team has shown no indications of bringing either of them back for 2018. Also, Tennessee released receiver/kick returner Eric Weems at the start of the off-season as well.

The Titans’ current starting receivers are Corey Davis, who struggled with injuries his rookie season, and veteran Rishard Matthews. Tennessee also has slot receiver Taywan Taylor, who was inconsistent as a rookie, and Tajae Sharpe, who started as a rookie in 2016, but spent all last season on injured reserve after suffering a foot injury during off-season work.
