Vote: projecting a new contract for free agent Jordan Matthews

Are you willing to pay a premium for Matthews? Jordan Matthews came to the Buffalo Bills as part of the trade that landed Ronald Darby with the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews spent a good portion of the year playing through injuries and dealing with an ineffective offense and didn’t match his prior production when he was force fed in Philly. Will teams pay for Matthews’ Philly production or his injury-plagued Bills production? On the open market, his potential is on full display and Matthews has former offensive coaches in three spots who might want to bring his experience to town; his...

Potential 2018 NFL Draft substitutes for Jordan Matthews

Potential 2018 NFL Draft substitutes for Jordan Matthews

Replacing the Bills de facto #2 wide receiver through the draft Jordan Matthews was another player that the Buffalo Bills got in a trade, but unlike other newcomer EJ Gaines, Matthews was not a great for the team. His best years in the NFL came lined up from the slot, instead of split out wide as the Bills were forced to utilize him for a good chunk of the time. Therefore, it’d be understandable if Matthews chooses to pursue a better fit in free agency. That would leave the team with another hole to fill in free agency or the draft. If Brandon Beane chooses, below is a small sampling of...

4 potential free agent replacements for WR Jordan Matthews

4 potential free agent replacements for WR Jordan Matthews

After the season he had in 2017, it’s hard to see Matthews returning to Buffalo At the time, the Buffalo Bills seemingly looked to have made out well after acquiring wide receiver Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles last summer, shortly after announcing that they had dealt Sammy Watkins. Obviously, the Bills went on to have a successful 2017 campaign - their best in nearly two decades - but from an individual perspective, the season was one that Matthews would surely like to forget. A former second-round pick, Matthews enjoyed a tremendous amount of success prior to landing in...

Internal options to replace free agent WR Jordan Matthews

Unlike other positions, Buffalo has in-house options to replace Matthews The Buffalo Bills dealt starting cornerback Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in August of 2017. Matthews, a former second-round selection out of Vanderbilt in 2014, is heading to free agency after a disappointing, injury-plagued season in Western New York. Matthews did not perform to expectations during his one season with the Bills, catching 25 passes for 282 yards with one touchdown while averaging 11.3 yards per catch before being placed on the...

All-22 analysis: Jordan Matthews might be a keeper

All-22 analysis: Jordan Matthews might be a keeper

Jordan Matthews’ 2017 showed plenty of promise for the Buffalo Bills Jordan Matthews landed with the Buffalo Bills as part of a trade that sent cornerback Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles (where I’m sure he ended up a pretty happy camper). As only half of a pair of controversial trades, Matthews was acquired to ease the pain of losing Sammy Watkins. Watkins was often maligned by fans as “injury prone,” and Matthews’ historical durability was seen as a major positive. Naturally then, Matthews had a sternum injury in his first practice. This was followed up by a thumb injury...

Bills were relatively healthy for the 2017 season

Bills were relatively healthy for the 2017 season

Compared to years past, the Bills didn't have many long-term injuries In the 2017 season, the Buffalo Bills had just one starter miss over 10 games as Cordy Glenn missed 11 games on the year. For the rest of the season, most of the team stayed relatively healthy. Aside from Glenn, only Jordan Matthews, Shaq Lawson, and Andre Holmes were starters that the team put on injured reserve. Glenn battled a foot/ankle injury for the most of the season. He missed the last nine games when he was put on injured reserve after missing back-to-back games in the middle of the season. He also missed the...

Buffalo Bills 2017 trades: cornerback E.J. Gaines was a great addition

Buffalo Bills 2017 trades: cornerback E.J. Gaines was a great addition

The pending free agent should be the number one priority of free agents this offseason Before the start of the 2017 season, the Buffalo Bills made what many fans and media members considers to be a few questionable trades at the time. It seemed they were trading away a good portion of their young talent and the future of this roster for years to come. Kaelin Clay, Jordan Matthews, E.J. Gaines and draft picks were the return for Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby and Kevon Seymour. In the middle of the season, the Bills traded their third-round pick for receiver Kelvin Benjamin. Matthews played 10...

Report: Philadelphia Eagles tried to trade for Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy in 2016

Report: Philadelphia Eagles tried to trade for Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy in 2016

Can you imagine what the Bills offense would have looked like this past season without him? The football world realized what a grave mistake the Philadelphia Eagles made when they traded star running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills ahead of the 2015 season. Apparently, the Eagles did too. Sources told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that during the 2016 offseason the Eagles had an “off-the-books offer for McCoy comprised of a package of players that included wide receiver Jordan Matthews.” Ironically, Philadelphia dealt Matthews to Buffalo the following year in a separate...
